    Not that fussed about the sleeve but the combs look very well priced. Much simpler than dealing with shipping from the US or Australia, will nab a few and see how they go.

    That is indeed, for some reason, a thing.

    Did Alphacool not realise that the rainbow colours in the promotional picture, with indigo missing, are the colours of the LGBT Rainbow Flag? [​IMG]

    Roy G. Biv, dude. A rainbow has seven colours; Mist's point is that both the LGBTQ rainbow flag and AlphaCool's promotional imagery have only six colours, and the colour they're both missing is indigo. A coincidence, or are The Gays trying to infect our rigs with fabulousness?

    (Spoiler: it's probably 'cos indigo dye is difficult to distinguish from violet so often gets left out of fabric rainbows.)

    Ooops, I forgot there was 7!

    A lot of people say there are only 6 colours in a rainbow, scientists are now saying there are 8....

    6 colour theory

    Rainbows need to sort themselves out. :D

    Well, if we're talking technically, a rainbow has all the colours there are...

    "It is customary to list indigo as a color lying between blue and violet, but it has never seemed to me that indigo is worth the dignity of being considered a separate color. To my eyes it seems merely deep blue."

    According to Asimov, indigo isn't really a color. I trust him, because he worked out how to stop robots from killing us all.

    On that topic, am I the only one immensely annoyed by the nursery rhyme I can Sing a Rainbow? "Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue..." Have you ever seen a tuppin' rainbow?!

    Oh man... that is INCREDIBLY annoying.
    Tangentally, the jingle's wikipedia page claims that pink is not one of the colors in a rainbow. Which is almost as annoying.
