When did "whore" come to mean "enthusiast," anyway?

(Also, some of those are wayyyy miscategorized, cf. #d9ff39 clearly not being purple.

"crackenthusiast" doesn't quite sound right.

Right about the time "pimp" became "to improve"...

Why does searching for orange come up with greens?

ha. Slight digression, this segment from WNYC's Leonard Lopate show discusses the transition of the word "pimp" to mean "to improve."

"...nice colors"
Says you - some of those pages, I'm sure, are going to result in me needing surgery on my retinas.

Wasn't there some software that would create a color wheel based on whatever color you gave it, so that you could create color schemes that "made sense" from a single color?

www.colorschemer.com will do that for you. I've tried more recent versions and I think I prefer the older builds.

"Pimp" means improve? I thought it meant "to crap something up with unnecessary features".

Roughly around the time "diva" became synonymous with "bitch".

Teal is prolly my fave or 2nd fave colour. I like how it goes with orange.

Sorry, not a US citizen so forgive me if I'm wrong... off the top of my head: teal+orange = Florida Gators and Miami Dolphins?

Nice colour combo.

Why tf does searching for blue come up with YELLOW?

Where's that color site where you lay out a swatch in the middle of the page, then click-drag it and leave a trail of new colorswatches related in hue or saturation?

The whole thing was very wide-open, used the whole browser as your workarea.
