since i am not sure if it would be politically correct to give this post a thumbs up, i am taking the time to reply to it.My father was shot by a mass murderer on a shooting spree in 1987 (when I was 4) and lived to tell the tale. He got to make appearances on both Oprah & Geraldo.
The Picard.Oh dear.
And then she ditched you and happily buggered off with that charismatic, duplicitous, untrustworthy, demigod.....what was his name again?
Wait, wut? Q? Not "The Picard?"Q. Oh how I loathe Q ever since my first encounter with him at Farpoint Station.
So if you see a 0 on a white background, does it disappear? Or is there some difference in how the white looks?I have grapheme synesthesia, which in my case means that I see each single-digit number as being inherently colored in my mind. Specifically I see them this way:
The colors here aren't quite adequate 0 is white, 4 is yellow-orange, and 9 is red-orange.
People ask if me if it ever helped with math. Not particularly. I think it did help me memorize square numbers and a lot of prime numbers, though. It's helped me in recreational mathematics.
I also have number-form synesthesia, which means that I see certain sequences of numbers (like the years 1900-2000) or the numbers 1-100 as forming a "map" in my mind, generally in the shape of a zigzagging staircase. I'm weird.
I guess for me the background doesn't matter, because it's the mental image of the 0 that's white, so how it appears in print doesn't affect my image of the number. To some extent. If I see color-coded numbers with colors that don't match my own colors, it can throw me off a bit. (I'll see a red 3 and think "no, 3 is blue!")So if you see a 0 on a white background, does it disappear? Or is there some difference in how the white looks?
Also, if you see O with no other context, does it look white when you think it's a zero, then change color when you realize it's an oh, or vice versa?
I'm genuinely curious about this, and those are just a couple questions that popped into mind.
Indeed, in the episode “Qpid” Vash bid Picard a farewell kiss and vanished with Q to explore the universe together.I seem to recall that she cheerfully chose to vanish with the immortal and irresponsible Q.
While the Chinese Navy vessel Plans Yancheng FFG-546 was making a port call in San Diego (December 7, 2016), a touring visitor blurted out "Don't pay attention to Trump, he's crazy!" (While making the universal gesture of circling his finger about his head.)While the USS Michigan was visiting San Diego, i met Rick Springfield while he was touring the sub. He sang a verse of Jessie’s girl.
Thanks, that's interesting.I guess for me the background doesn't matter, because it's the mental image of the 0 that's white, so how it appears in print doesn't affect my image of the number. To some extent. If I see color-coded numbers with colors that don't match my own colors, it can throw me off a bit. (I'll see a red 3 and think "no, 3 is blue!")
But 0 and O are distinct. I don't see all letters as colored (nor are their colors as strongly ingrained into my mind as the numbers), but I do generally picture the vowels as colored, so O has an orangey-yellow color and can easily be distinguished from the white zero. My mind will settle on one or the other if the font or writing is ambiguous. (Interestingly I see the letter "I" as black, which is similar in shape to the number "1", also black, yet for some reason 0 and O are quite distinct).
