    Default Color

    What color of the colors listed best describes the color of your skin?

    EDIT: I should have included White.

    I'm not really white and my body hair may make me look a bit darker in certain regions(or maybe it's my yellow-ish lamp), but most people would call me white, so yeah, I'm white. And my hands vary between white, red and purple when it's cold, unfortunately.

    Technicolor, or is that a side effect of the acid?

    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    I'd say that I, an Asian, would be stereotypically yellow, but IMO, my skin doesn't seem too yellow and is more of a light tan

    Brown+pink+white+red = lightly tanned, I guess.

    what about blue from shallow blood vessels, red from occasional scars etc in the skin, yellow-beige-white elsewhere, greenish look under the eyes when tired, and sometimes very strong tan in the summer... I guess if you mix all colors there are, you're supposed to get either white (if light) or brown (if pigments)????

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Translucent... so pink under normal conditions. Purple with orange dots form on my hands then my arms as I get colder. Press on my skin and it will leave a white dot that lasts longer and stronger with more pressure.
