and you think YOU'RE green (new paint!)

I am currently having some painting done at my house. (Due to the notorious "toaster incident")

Since I needed painting anyways, why not add some color?

And what's the most eco-friendly color there is?

GREEN!


And what's my favorite non-gasoline way to get around? ELECTRIC!

So why not paint a room ELECTRIC GREEN!?


Hope I like it!




I haven't gone blind or gotten a headache yet!

Wow.

Up 'til now I thought you were a pretty cool guy...

Just kidding!

It reminds me of the shade my brother used to paint a wall in Mom and Dads basement so he could try out the 'green screen' feature of his video software.

You should try to paint your electric vehicles with that color.

Personally I couldn't.

A friend of mine is painting a guys office that same color of green on two walls, and a bright yellow on the two walls, apparently they are two of the colors that can combat seasonal affective disorder (winter depression) so it will be interesting to see if this makes Ben an even perkier person.

If the weatherman can greenscreen, why can't I?




Interesting point about the seasonal effective disorder.
The big reason I chose this color is because it is insanely chipper!

I tend to use lots of big (100 watt) daylight color temperature compact fluorescent light bulbs in the winter. They do help! (especially on a timer to go on in the morning!)

OK, this should help with the seasonal effective disorder.
