Crayola had a line of tech-themed crayons in 1997 called "Techno-Brite"

@Christian these should really be redone for accuracy. Infrared and Ultraviolet? Really? 430THz-300GHz and 800THz-30PHz respectively, which clearly isn't what the dang crayon is made of, because that would be invisible.

And then Megahertz Maroon? How friggin' many, assholes?

@Christian tag yourself i'm malformed url "www.purple"

@t54r4n1 @Christian They were just so ahead of time, that they knew .purple would become a TLD some day.

@pbandkate @Christian I am definitely double-u double-u double-u dot purple.

@Christian www.purple sounds like the domain name for a pleroma instance that everyone would block because the single user on it was wildly racist

@Christian those are some really good shades too, love me some neons

@Christian great, now i hate Crayola. i didn't think that was possible. at least they didn't come up with an "information superhighway" colour.

@Christian wow, prescient that on-line orange refers now to cheeto shit grandpa

@Christian you can really tell it's just, "the internet is New and Cool and let's name stuff after it!!! green.com! www.purple! on-line orange!!!"

@Felthry
I love that "on-line" is hyphenated, like "e-mail" lol

@Christian the cowards at ICANN need to make .purple a TLD

@sugar
I know... believe me, I checked :(

They don't even have .color or .hue
What the heck.

@Christian
Coming soon (I wish): crayons with hex codes instead of labels.

@rick_777
"Hey, can you pass me the ?"

"Just a sec, I'm still using it."

@anathem
>I don't even...

If you don't even, I hope you at least odd. Otherwise, something is very irrational here.

@Christian Yes, something is oddly irrational here. It might even be imaginary.

@Christian www.purple

These can be real domain names with the vanity TLDs

@Christian Uhh… ultraviolet is at the wrong end of the spectrum!? 😱​
This is some kind of matter/anti-matter thing, isn't it!? 😥​

@Christian circuit board green is more apt than i would have expected, tbh

@Christian
Ohhh, the late 90s. It was a simpler time, back then...
