Topic: Brass pro hot rod or Dots-a-lot as "color blindness test"

I picked up two versions of the brass hot rod yesterday. One allows for 3 different colors without reset, and the other allows for 3 different colors, a reset, and then 3 more colors. Anyway, here's the idea..

"I was in a flee market and found this antique colorblindness test for physicians to diagnose patients....." Show multi colors on both sides to one viewer, then turn to another and show all one color..... hmmm, "Maybe you're color blind." back to the other person with all colors, then to the 'patient' again with one color. Then talk about how some people get angry when they learn they find out they may be colorblind. show them all red (people "see red" when they are angry)

To avoid possibly angering someone, it might be better to 'hypnotize' them into colorblindness than making them 'think' they are?????

What do you think?

Really, no one who drove successfully to see your show will pass a traffic light without remembering whether they are colorblind.

We claim to trick people into picking the wrong queen, not being able to remember whether the ball is in our pocket or under the chop cup. We pretend to cut off their arms and heads. We take their money and burn it up, or tear it up. We invade their innermost thoughts. Doing something that couldn't possibly convince them they have a vision problem doesn't even come close.
