List of colors The following is a list of colors. A number of the color swatches below are taken from domain-specific naming schemes such as X11 or HTML4. RGB values are given for each swatch because such standards are defined in terms of the sRGB color space.

The HSV (hue, saturation, value) color space values, also known as HSB (hue, saturation, brightness), and the hex triplets (for HTML web colors) are also given in the following table. Colors that appear on the web-safe color palette—which includes the sixteen named colors—are noted. (Those four named colors corresponding to the neutral grays have no hue value, which is effectively ignored—i.e., left blank.)

Took out the $500 and still have the profit of $288 to trade with. This is a great system you got there Sir, I definitely owe you one." Shelly Green - New York Lesson 1238 - Harassment I wrote this comic months ago, after seeing certain statements come up in harassment and rape reports over and over again. Yes, it certainly simplifies the issue, and no, it doesn't cover all types of harassment. But it's important to remember something - seeking attention is not the same as seeking harassment. If someone has been harassed or raped, then by definition, they were not asking for it. At some point, you can't shift the blame, and you will always be responsible for your own actions.

I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a female driver cut right in front of a pickup truck, causing him to have to drive onto the shoulder to avoid hitting her. This evidently angered the driver enough that he hung his arm out his window and "flipped" the woman off. "Man, that guy is stupid," I thought to myself.
