What is the fastest color? (I don't mean in physics, I mean notionally.)
I'm feeling: chipperchipper

Many people believe that red is the fastest color, but it's a little-known fact that in fact hot pink is faster than red, and yellow is faster than both of them.

I actually might agree on the "hot pink" :-}.

I'm torn between red and yellow. But definitely NOT orange.

Red. The only thing faster is red with racing stripes.

(Europeans will mention british racing green but those people are old and unreliable)

Safety yellow.

Dunno know about fastest but the slowest is red, without question. (Slowest = least fast, right?)

Purple will do pretty much anything for a drink and a few dollars.

...oh, you meant something else?

I'm thinking "lightning blue", but only really in context, and nailing down a Pantone color for that is pretty hard.

It's blue, of course.

Red ones go faster -- an empirical fact of Ork science.

My word association demanded I say red---

Red. Red. *Red*. *Red*, Charlie boy. *Red*! Is the color of sex! Burgundy is the color of hot water bottles! Red is the color of sex and fear and danger and signs that say, Do. Not. Enter. All my favorite things in life.

Red. But green, while slower, is already there.
