Pigments are cyan, yellow, and magenta. They are the complements of red, blue, and green respectively.

Check you're printer's color ink : )

The question was primary colors, in pigments they are red, yellow and blue. And very specific hues of the three as well. All other colors can be made from a mixture of these. It took me 4 years of art school to learn that. In light, the colors are different, red, blue, and green.

Printers use cyan, yellow, and magenta, and black usually. I believe that it is probably because of their transparency. Printers may use a lot more colors as well, thus 3 color, 4 color, 5 color and 6 color runs of the press. The more colors the more accurate the reproduction.

It's because it's a fact that, for the human eye, the CMYK model produces the widest possible gamut from three non-black colors. They correspond to absorbing a specific wavelength of light that the eye sees. Cyan pigments absorb red light. Magenta pigments absorb green light. Yellow pigments absorb blue light. A non-CMY primary will have a weakness in one region of the color spectrum (but it's stronger in another e.g. reds and yellows for RYB - important since 89% of our color vision is red and green). Painters also have white on their color wheel which they can use to lighten colors. Printers just need to dither for that.

My printer has five colors (plus black). The extra two are light cyan and light magenta, in order to produce lighter colors than CMYK typically allows. This sort of thing is why printers don't want you to submit things in CMYK necessarily.

On topic, apparently mister Camping has been very quiet. And now we're hearing stories about people who ruined their lives because they believed him -_-

I feel really sorry for those people.  I hope that they're able to recover from the irresponsible acts of this nutcase (possibly a class-action against Family Radio?)

On what basis? Fraud? The major problem with that would be proving that Camping knew what he was claiming was false. I actually think Camping almost certainly believed his own delusions.

I can't think of another justification to sue in order to retrieve donated money, that is, money not used to purchase goods or services).

*sigh*  I know.  It's just really unsettling to think that he's convinced people to destroy their lives (I've read reports about the 60-year-old in New York who spent his life savings on pamphlets and advertising for this guy, a 27-year-old expectant mother who budgeted her money to run out on May 21, and a woman in California who tried to kill herself and her two daughters) and now he can just go 'Whoopsie, forgot to carry the seven!'

You know, I almost added that they are turquoise, acid yellow and fuschia, because as a dyer I cannot make turquoise from 'primary' blue, or acid yellow from primary yellow dyes, but didn't want to confuse people ;).  I agree with you completely.  In fact, when I teach my design classes at my university, I give both pigment primary models, because you generally do not see CYM listed as primaries in art textbooks, but it's far easier to mix colors using it as starting place. 

There's a really interesting book on color that came out recently, where the author spent the time to figure out where the traditional pigments sit on the color wheel in terms of their optical qualities.  Then he figured out how they correspond to serveral common brands of artist's paints in order to facilitate the mixing of true neutrals.  His name is Stephen Quiller, and the book is Color Choices: Making Sense Out of Color Theory.  It's a fun read for artists, and very useful for color mixing.

I was kind of wondering how that happened as well.  Reading back, it makes sense though!

Camping is holding firm that the world will end by October. Apparently he said something along the lines of God not wanting to punish the world with five months of destruction.

Quote
"We've always said October 21 was the day," Camping said during his show. "The only thing we didn't understand was the spirituality of May 21. We're seeing this as a spiritual thing happening rather than a physical thing happening. The timing, the structure, the proofs, none of that has changed at all."

However, Camping said his group would not be mounting another advertising push. In the months leading up to May 21, Family Radio billboards popped up across the country, warning that the end was near. -Source

In the same article, he says:

Quote
Reporters who were allowed to ask questions during the broadcast Monday pressed Camping on this issue, but he would not admit that he bore any blame for his followers' predicaments.

"I don't have any responsibility. I'm only teaching the Bible. I'm telling ... this is what the Bible says. I don't have spiritual rule over anybody ... except my wife as the head of the household."

Hey, just because my birthday is the day before, means it is reason to feel like it is in the end of the world. A end of the world hangover is nothing like the actual end of the world! Just saying!
