They don't. Because Liberace and Elton John don't shop at Sears. (it's li-burr-AH-chee for all you kids out there...)

Also because Liberace's dead and both he and Elton would wear only custom made clothes .

That's good to know, and probably true for the majority of people with color-blindness issues. Otherwise you would hear more about it.

I had a co-worker back in my days of making ice cream and Italian ices, who had a red-brown color deficiency. One of our most popular sorbet (Italian ice) flavors was raspberry, but once he made a whole bunch of batches of brown raspberry ice. Apparently the new can of raspberry stabilizer that he'd opened was missing the red coloring, and he couldn't tell the difference. So we had about 20 gallons of brownish raspberry ice we couldn't sell. Tasted just fine, but looks affect taste and it wasn't up to our standards. After that he always had to check with someone else to verify the color when opening a new container of the raspberry stuff.

Ha ha, thats pretty funny (eh not for the wasted batch)

Imagine all the hystarical ways people have discovered they were color blind over the years - bomb squad tech "cut the red wire, not the brown wire" (yes I understand the horribly innacurate logistics in that statement)

Dark pink is red. Your dad is right.

I'm red-green color blind, but apparently not as bad as I thought, since I could see the 29 (not very well) and the 8... though maybe the screen on my laptop is off

Nope, it's not! It's like the difference between magenta and pink!
