    What a stupid system to have.They used to have a similar system here you had to pick out your vehicle's registration from an on screen picture at the pay machine on whichever floor you were on in the town centre car park in my home town of Maidenhead but it didn't last very long and now they have a system where you take a token form the machine at the entry barriers and the when you ready to leave you put the token in one of the pay machines on each floor at that tells you how much to pay on which after putting sufficient payment the machine give you a ticket which you put in the machine at the exit barriers to let you out.
    For anyone who's been in there most of the day and thinks they'll pull a fast one by saying they've lost heir token and that they've only been in there for 1/2 hour they have to pay the maximum/penalty charge of 15 i believe.
    I once played a game of snooker after work with one of the guys i worked with,he was colour blind and couldn't distinguish between red and brown so needless to say i had about a 20 point lead before i'd even potted a single ball. so i had to point out to him which was the brown ball especially if it was near any of the red balls.He tried to get into the RAF but failed due to his colour blindness.

    Come on wolfy they're not that much and surely for someone that hasn't seen the full spectrum of colours properly a priceless item anyway. No??

    From what I could see they're around 200-250 odd for an adult pair. That's cheaper than any of the guns you've purchased.
    I think you're mad not to try them tbh but up to you.

    I am color blind but not for all colours , i have been known to pot the black when trying for a red lol . Its a pain in the arris cos my other hobby is keeping tropical fish and the only decent test kits use colour reactive fluids so I have to ask the wife to have a gander for me .

    I see (pardon the pun) what you mean but i think it'll ruin my image if i'm wearing a huge pair of dark sunglasses on a dark gloomy winters day,people will just think i've gone wierd or start asking me if i need help crossing the road due to losing my stick.
    I will pop into a few spec shops to see if they have a pair to try out to see if my vision is any different,then i will consider it if the difference warrants it.

    Fair enough.

    I would say if you did get a set you could obviously just wear them for watching films or TV so that you get the full affect. Good luck.

    You'll get the nick name Roy Orbinson too!

    To be fair though, must be worth a go, you deserve to see the world as it is!!

    I took a test earlier this evening and it turns out I have Tritanomaly / Tritanopia and Im colour blind to shades of blue and yellow because I couldn't see some of the images
    (Admittedly this did shock me somewhat)...
    Im encouraged to see my eye doctor as soon as possible

    This August I turn 50, (I only have one eye and I see my eye specialist regularly)
    and given that I managed to make it all the way though my life to 50 without this being of any issue (including army service) then I don't see it being one of major importance for what little time remains of my life,,,,

    So I don't think I'll bother my arse

    What looks right, is not necessarily right.
    But what looks wrong, is definitely not right!
