    Turning my iMac's display to grayscale makes me feel really weird. After a while it even makes be feel a bit sick and makes my head hurt.

    Weird?

    Why would you want to turn your display to grayscale?

    Ha! Dude, I've known all those tricks for years ;) Its way easier on your eyes isn't it? I keep it on inverted when my eyes are a bit sore :)

    Yeah, and then pull up the contrast slider all the way to the top as well. The resulting picture will make your eyes bleed.

    Same here. However: I can use my Mac Classic (which is black and white) for ages, and not get a headache or anything.

    The weird thing is that I only used it on grayscale for about 3 minutes before I got a headache from it. :confused:
