Purple.. maybe lilac.
 
2014-06-12 08:28:15 PM
I didn't see another color. Am I broken? Or perhaps it means I'm not racist?

Okay, seriously. Where the heck are you supposed to see the colors?

I saw a yellow-ish tinge first (kind of between the thin black stripes) but eventually there was a purple hazy glow around the big black circle in the middle.

Dark almost-brown yellow. Like the colour of a really old spicy mustard.

I see dark yellowish purple in two sets of rings, damned near evenly spaced between the inner and outer set of rings.  Sort of like

IT'S A SCHOONER!

Do I stare at the edges where its spinning fastest, or the middle? Does the colour appear when you look away (like other optical illusions do) or what? I'm not getting anything. How long am I supposed to stare at it.

I'm getting a headache.

I'm color blind, I see a seizure happening for some people.

Bill_Wick's_Friend: Dark almost-brown yellow. Like the colour of a really old spicy mustard.


I get this one, pretty close.  It was lighter at first, then darkened.

When I reversed the small one I either got nothing or a dark blue that was almost black, couldn't tell.
 
2014-06-12 09:53:44 PM
Pale yellow.

Boyfriend quizzed, he sees Blue.

Seeing red means that you are real smart.

Saw green, did you?

Just remember you're a living organism on this planet, and you're very safe. You've just taken a heavy drug. Relax, stay inside and listen to some music, Okay? Do you have any Allman Brothers?

That's the one I'm getting, too

Same
 
2014-06-12 11:25:19 PM
I see two: pale yellow and brown
 
2014-06-12 11:27:01 PM
Because we're all looking at it on different monitors?

I mean, in a proper scientific experiment that would be controlled. Maybe they did that, but this is a Daily Fail link so I'm not going to bother reading to find out.
 
2014-06-12 11:27:13 PM

Dinjiin: I see two: pale yellow and brown


Same.

Handsome B. Wonderful: I'm seeing black and white.


I also see black and white.

Where is this color appearing, for those who see it?
 
2014-06-12 11:27:52 PM
yellow
 
2014-06-12 11:28:18 PM
I guess I'm broken. Just black and white to me.
 
2014-06-12 11:28:26 PM
yellow
 
2014-06-12 11:28:42 PM
Pale yellow.

All other results are invalid.

Fluorescent yellow-ish and a bit of blue
 
2014-06-12 11:29:04 PM
Yellow tinge. Probably something to do with how slightly different arrangement of rods and cones in people's retinas. It's why some people can the polarization of light with the naked eye (easiest to see if you look straight up into a clear sky at dusk).
 
2014-06-12 11:29:30 PM
No color. Must mean I'm a suoer genius.
 
2014-06-12 11:29:34 PM
Another dark purple here.

I'm not getting much change at all except a neon green ring that's about half the diameter of the total circle and that only shows up when I focus intently on the center of the image.
 
2014-06-12 11:29:51 PM
I saw blue, then green, then tried for yellow and actually got it. I was less successful trying to see red.
