Air and water are okay in reasonable amounts.

Is a fiction of a thing really the thing?

It's a kaleidoscope of multicolored blobs with sprites and sky snakes flitting around it, on a backdrop of varied colors including the mess people seem to call blue!

... visual consensus is a odd one, tbh, since the lived experience for the folks saying the agreed upon word may actually be wildly different. From what I understand, most folks' "blue" (nor their other colors, for that matter) isn't constantly moving around, ferex. Other folks (and especially non-humans!) have various sorts of color blindness or other non-<human baseline> visual states. Etc., etc., etc.

Color in general and the interactions between visual experience, consensus, and reality, in particular, just isn't actually uncontroversial, least as far as I've (heh) seen. Not difficult to live your life without ever actually noticing the frisson exists, but it definitely does.

e: also the word is "color", tell a friend, down with the extraneous U!

Uncontroversial, but underspecified: What planet? Dawn? Dusk? Midnight? Latitude / presence of aurorae? Cloud cover / humidity? How much particulate matter?

Imsorryjohn has me doubting that Garfield is a cat. More than him being the founder of the World Juggling Federation and the original creator of Magic: The Gathering already did.

... just to check, is there something going on with dry water that isn't immediately obvious? Literally all I remember about it is it's a fun thing to reference when someone says water is wet.
