The Color Blue (The Science, the Psychology, the Humor)

So red is my favorite color. But when you're nobody … nobody cares what colors you like (except close family and friends ). Blue is Jay-Z's favorite color which is important because … he's Jay-Z or Jay Z!! (Used to have a dash, now his name doesn't have a dash.)

According to the writer of the article found at cloudhax.com, ancient civilizations did not have a word for the color “blue” in their languages. Interestingly enough, this is the order in which words for colors appeared in human languages : first there was black and white, then red, then yellow and green, and last of all, blue.
