Is there any particular reason this page/trope has no examples?

I think it's so widespread that people don't bother listing examples.

"and even that has more to do with the diffusion of light as mentioned earlier "

Uh, that's the same reason why any physical thing has any color. I might delete this.

It is incumbent on me to mention the extreme to which Limbo Of The Lost takes this trope: one puzzle assumes that mixing saffron and water will make a green liquid.

The page quote - wasn't that Rincewind, not Ridcully? Its been a while since I've read the Science of Discworld, but I seem to remember Rincewind being the one on the planet, while Ridcully and the others were just standing around the lab talking to him. I don't want to change it unless I can confirm I'm correct though.

Rincewind points out the sea being blue as odd, and then Ridcully and the Dean discuss it, which is this bit. While Rinso's the only one who's actually (well, virtually) there, the others can see what's going on through the omniscope.

If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.
