On the plus side it fits you. Reserve wearing it until you are in a white out and then you will be seen instead of blending in. Or during the hunting season if you are in the woods. Seriously though if you live where there is nasty winter this would be a coat you could put in the car for emergency use. And if it gets stolen out of there you wouldn’t be as upset. I have a bright orange (yuck; the inside is gray and I am tempted to use it inside out) North Face sleeping bag I bought at a remainder place for $25 that I keep in the car for just that purpose. Actually if you live up north enough selling it to hunters would probably get you a decent price.
It is well known that phones are cooler/blue color biased because it stimulates our retinas more to trigger attention and responses. The two things advertisers are paying for - your eyeballs and attention.
It is not a coincidence we are subliminally “drawn” to these devices. Doomscrolling is the intended behavior training.
@Kyeh@OnionSoup i noticed the jacket being red immediately, then i saw the cones and thought “they look orange.”. Looking again now i agree w OnionSoup that they are not as orange as an IRL traffic cone, but orange compared to the red jacket.
I liked the blue tint comment, @mike808, that made sense. Of course i understand so little about tech or photography, you could have said it had something to do with the rajahelix filter and i probably would have nodded.
@carl669@f00l I don’t know about OrangeQuarterly but I’m pretty positive we know that MehQuarterly has little to no standards. Besides you’re the Orange Coat Goat. That seems obligatory for a cover… now I’m going to have to make you a magnet when I get back to Portland!
