This happened to my friend Tony. He was taking an introduction to photography course (since then he's gone on to be a wonderful photographer) and the teacher was talking about how colors are used in photography and how different colors evoke different feelings...
Teacher: "So what sort of feelings do you have when you think of the color blue?"
Girl: (raises her hand) "The sky!"
Teacher: "Ok, yes, the sky is blue, but what kind of feel does the color blue have?"
Girl: "The ocean!"

I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Cons: causes bad nightmares. I used to have to eat beef until I passed out to have these kind of terrors, but this machine does it for me every time I fall asleep inside it.
