    I've often been asked, "What do you old folks do now that you're retired?
    Well, I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background, one of the things I enjoy most is turning beer, wine, Scotch and margaritas into urine.

    Life's good, live it.

    It's to do with you having rods and cones in your retina. One sees black/white the other colour. Can 't rememeber which is which.

    If you stare at a certain colour, like RED for long enough you wear the red cones out, so you can only see blue and green in these locations. the reason you have to look at one point (the cross) is so the same cones are always looking at a certain coloured dot.
