Blue... ;-) ;-)

Wikipedia says
"The term blue may refer to any of a number of similar colors. The sensation of blue is made by light having a spectrum dominated by energy in the wavelength range of about 440–490 nm.
Blue is considered to be one of the three primary additive colors in the RGB system; blue light has the shortest wavelength range of the three additive primary colors. The English language commonly uses "blue" to refer to any color from navy blue to cyan."

Some strange facts ( of course i googled for them :P )
  • Blue eyes are the most sensitive to light, brown eyes the least sensitive!
  • Owls are the only birds who can see the color blue!
  • 80 percent of Americans love blue color!
  • Blue and white are the most common school colors!
  • Animal breeders in Russia once claimed to have bred sheep with blue wool!
  • A scallop has 35 blue eyes!
  • Mosquitoes are attracted to the color blue twice as much as any other!
  • Maine produces about 98-99% of all wild blueberries in the US!
  • The red traffic light contains some orange color and the green traffic light contains some blue color making it easier for people with red-green color blindness!
  • More people use blue toothbrushes, than red ones!
  • Other than humans, black lemurs are the only primates that may have blue eyes!
  • There are only two animals with blue tongues, the Black Bear and the Chow dog!
  • The blue whale can produce sounds up to about 188 decibels!
  • A blue whales heart beats nine times per minute!
  • Most elephants weigh less than the tongue of the blue whale!
  • Blue whales weigh as much as 30 elephants and are as long as 3 Greyhound buses!
  • The blood vessels of a blue whale are wide enough for an adult trout to swim through!
Well enough of facts, I'll tell you some more nice facts :P :P
  • Sudden change to blue color makes people shout "Blue Blue Blue" all the time. This syndrome can be observed around one week even before the color change occurs.
  • Any girl who works in front of computer most of the time loves blue color than anything else.
  • Though blue color wavelength is 440-490 nm, the lower bound for blue color is 1200 and the upper bound is 1500.
  • Though the hexadecimal triplet for blue is #0000FF, the actual blue you see in the websites is #6666FF. This can be checked in the css file. For example
  • /* Blue */
    .coderTextBlue, .coderTextBlue:link, .coderTextBlue:visited, .coderTextBlue:hover, .coderTextBlue:active 
    { color: #6666FF; }
Hmmmm, i wish i could write more but have to stop here :-) :-)
