The Grass Scanner Answered

Picture of

Now you can know for certain if the grass is really greener on the other side thanks to Alice Wang's fantastic new grass scanner. It takes 3 seperate readings using Pantone color detecting devices and then averages them to determine a the true green-ness of the grass.

Now, where did I put that grass? Oh, yeah! It's under my feet. Check. Guess I'll get my tree scanner, now.

By the title I thought this was going to be a way to find pot! Actually, I couldve used one like that. One of my renters planted some "grass" and then moved out. The cops would've thought it was mine (if they found it first)!

Aw.. my grass averages about #A9D12E.. that's not very green. However, I don't use sprinklers or a hose to water it which makes it "greener" than the neighbours :)

Presumably not having read the entire archive of Pixel and spendt enough time on the internet that colour references automatically mean 6-digit hex codes :P

Oh. Well... that's inexcusable :P Although your 'Tible only covered number representations, not all the stuff hex is used for.
