XKCD color survey

When a blog post starts with the following:

Who in the rainbow can draw the line where the violet tint ends and the orange tint begins? Distinctly we see the difference of the colors, but where exactly does the one first blendingly enter into the other? So with sanity and insanity.
—Herman Melville, Billy Budd

Orange, red? I don’t know what to believe anymore!
—Anonymous, Color Survey

I WILL EAT YOUR HEART WITH A FUCKING SPOON IF YOU AKS ANY MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT COLORS
—Anonymous, Color Survey

and, it’s done by xkcd, you know it’s going to be good.

I actually had to stop reading for a bit, because I was laughing too hard that my eyes teared up.  The “unique color names” towards the end will make you fall out of your chair.
