** War Plan Red: War with the British Empire ridiculous as it sounds now, it was considered an unlikely but real possibility due to the UK's alliance with Japan, potential conflicts over the Empire's Caribbean holdings, lingering bad feelings over unpaid debts from the Great War, and the last whisperings of [[SpaceFillingEmpire a desire to unify "English-speaking North America"]] that had existed since 1775. The largest components of the Empire got their own shades: Britain itself was "Red" (this included Newfoundland, which at the time was separate from Canada), Canada was "Crimson", [[UsefulNotes/TheRaj India "Ruby"]], Australia "Scarlet", New Zealand "Garnet", and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Ireland "Emerald"]]. The bulk of this plan outlined a multi-front invasion and occupation of Canada while the US Navy blocked the Royal Navy from entering the Western Atlantic.

* In American politics, Blue is the color associated with the Democratic Party (liberal), Red with the Republican Party (conservative), and Green with Independent or Third-Party candidates. Hilariously, this color scheme is completely arbitrary: it was invented by the NBC broadcast network [[NewerThanTheyThink during their coverage of the extremely-close 2000 Presidential election]] purely as a means of keeping things straight on their electoral map. But it's been pretty much adopted by the political parties involved ever since (you'll often hear of a solid Republican or conservative state referred to in discourse as a "red state", one with a more even mix as a "purple", etc.). Even more hilariously, this color scheme is almost the exact opposite of that of European politics, where Blue is associated with conservative movements and Red with social democratic, socialist and communist ones.

Hilariously, this color scheme is completely arbitrary: it was invented by the NBC broadcast network [[NewerThanTheyThink during their coverage of the extremely-close 2000 Presidential election]] purely as a means of keeping things straight on their electoral map. In previous elections, both NBC and the other networks had randomly chosen which color to use for which party on their electoral maps, because both the Democrats ''and'' the Republicans officially used the same combination of red, white and blue as the nation as a whole does.

ones. The association of Red with communism had long existed in the United States as well, making it all the more amusing that it's now associated with the conservative Republicans.

* Fruits change colour depending on how ripe they are. This is thought to be why humans evolved colour vision in the first place. Additionally, Women are less prone to colorblindness than men. They believe this is a holdover from the old caveman days, when women were the gatherers and had to differentiate between "safe to eat" red berries and "highly poisonous" red berries.
