Bleh. Maybe if it said "Normals are weird."

FYI, I can make out that something is in there, but without clicking on the link I never would have known what it was.

I never knew there were so many colour blind people in the world until I came to this site.

I'm with my brother on this one: I can see that there is a different color in there, but can't actually read it. I'd actually seen a guy wearing this shirt at a con (Unity Games), and asked him what it said, and he was clearly very pleased that I'd fallen for it.

Oh, I can't read it either. It's called "irony."

Is it still irony if they send you a shirt that says "Colorblind is for losers"? hehe . It's like this site I used to be in charge of at work. For all I know the Chinese translators where advertising for our competetors on the front page or insulting our users for fun.

My boss sent me a link to a site that had a shirt with one of these circles that (evidently) said "F*** the colorblind."

I wasn't sure if I should be offended or laugh!

Once upon a time, several years ago, I had on my personal website some info about what colorblindness is like for me. I put a chart like that on there except that there was nothing in it at all. Nothing. For anyone.

At least that way all the non-colorblind people can see what it's like. I want that on a shirt.

Colorblindness is more common in males. So is BGG. Thus, the percent of colorblind people on BGG does not reflect the world's percentage.

No. That image is what the first image looks like to someone with a certain type of colorblindness.
