Default New car paint


Elderly pedestrians often have trouble seeing dark coloured cars so I propose all new cars be painted fluorescent pink.
There can be no objection to this because we have been reliably told the only reason for travelling by car is air conditioned comfort.

As long as this 'bright Pink' does not show the dirt like the black car
I have now, I have no problem with this (don't want to look like a slob).
At 56 and very secure in my sexuality have no problem with pink as a
colour. However that light blue that invalid cars used to be (the
three wheeler ones with just room for the driver) is a colour that I do
not like.

Oh the air conditioned comfort and the fact that i can't get my son on a
bike (special needs learning difficulties all that) and the fact that I
can get to the three local (Well not really local more nearest) general
hospitals in about a third of the time (well St Johns in Livingston it's
more like a quarter of the time 27 mins as opposed to 1hour 47 mins
oh and the fact that I can just chuck stuff in the back and transport it
(yes I probably could get most of the stuff on the bike or on a trailer
but at 56 with diabetes I am not fit enough to do that) oh and the fact
that...

There are a lot of situations where a bike should be used but there
are still a lot were a car is needed. For instance I wouldn't drive
into Edinburgh (Edinburgh HATES cars) and I wouldn't ride a bike to the
Hospital to visit my wife .

exactly right. No form of transport is right for every situation,
location, purpose or person.

A recent NASA study of roofs showed that hot pink reflected more heat than any color except white.

A couple of tri athletes are using hot pink swim caps. Wear a black swim cap to the local pool and you'll spend a lot of time cooling the noggin off under 35 C water.

My own swim cap is a nondescript white and something.

You mean you weren't serious ?
Then why bother?
Do you get some sort of thrill just typing in rubbish
and 'flinging' it into the ether?

Deliberately trolling as opposed to making ridiculous statements.

For intelligent (FSVO) trolling see 'Commander Kinsey' or 'Wilkinson
sword' or whatever he calls himself these days.

Of course not, it's a stupid idea.
Witnesses remember make, colour and reg year.

Then why bother?


It's fun.

So definitely trolling then and not just hyperbole [1] ?

You think THAT'S fun, thought I was the sad one.

[1] I use hyperbole to mean exaggeration that is patently impossible:-

Saying 10s of 1,000s at the march when there were only 1000sExageration
Everyman and his dog were there ----------------------------- Hyperbole

Yep.

Can you provide evidence from the peer reviewed literature to support this claim?


Then why bother?


It's fun.

I'm not the one taking this group seriously.
