I love purple.

Sure, everyone has their favorite color[s]... but not everyone lets a color completely encapsulate their life. Purple has always been that color for me. Everything I do is in the pursuit of purple.

I collect things that are purple.
I use purple electronics or tools.
I paint my walls and things in my home purple.
I am drawn to purple objects.
I greatly enjoy art using purple color schemes.

Obviously, I could go on an on... but you get the idea. I'm like a moth drawn to a purple light bulb.

I heart purple.

While it's not necessarily in fashion for a man to love the color purple (at least in America), I've never really let that deter me. And now, with this thread, I hope to share and talk about all things purple. Are you a fan of purple as well? Great! Share in the velvety aura at the shortest wavelength of the visible spectrum. From amethyst to wisteria and every shade in between, this is The PURPLE Post.

Now... all aboard! purpletrain

Have you ever eaten a purple carrot? I have. Their flavor is slightly more earthy than your standard, run of the mill orange variety. As one of nature's rarest purple-colored foods, you should give them a shot!

Here's an interesting article on the health benefits of purple carrots.

Here's another marvel of nature... the Purple Emperor butterfly (Apatura iris). Only the males sport an iridescent purple shade to their back wings. This butterfly can be found in central Europe and some parts of Asia.

Cthulhu, another one of my favorite things, has always looked better in purple if you ask me.

I've got to give blood next week for an annual physical. Perhaps I'll do the same!

Carrots were originally purple, but the Dutch wanted carrots to share the same color as their flag, so they forced grew orange carrots. Which is why it's commonly known as the the color of carrots. A good number of produce we know today is not the same as it was generations ago.

Wheat has been so tampered with, which is why some people can't consume it celiac disease was never a thing until recent times.

You'd be alarmed at the number of purple shirts in my closet. It's ridiculous.

Purple is the color of one of my favorite foods, pickled beets.
It does for burgers what pineapple did for pizza
