...always blue in commercials?
Whether it is a diaper commerical, or now pregnancy test commercials, the pee is always depicted as blue.
I understand wanting it not to look like actual pee, but how did the industry standard become blue?

If I had to guess, I'd say because it's the brightest color that doesn't resemble an actual body waste product, and therefore shows the most contrast against a white diaper/pregger test background when being absorbed or whatever...

Just a guess....

Imagine if they dipicted it as red. Might want to see a doctor about that.

blue is a calming cool, soothing color.

Yellow - like real pee
clear - like real pee when you've been drinking alot of cheap beer.
Red - warm color, scare the audience
orange - to close to red on one side of the spectrum and yellow on the other side.
purple - meh, that's too royal of a color
Green - yellow and blue mix.

Blue is the perfect choice. I hadn't ever really paid attention to it before. Interesting.










I need a real job.

I think a better question is why your body turns lobster into a steaming pile of poo, but won't touch corn.

In most advertising when non-digital clocks are shown the time is 10:10.
Luckily blue is also the color for womans products, thankfully.

The Federal Government oversees this sort of thing, Mr. Sully.

The authorities believe it is preferable that Americans develop an appreciation for alternately colored urine because one side effect of an injection of mind-controlling, alien DNA (usually included in a free flu shot), is blue pee.

The idea is to acclimate you to the concept in advance.

****ing corn. That question puzzles me to this very day.

It's just the kernel covering that the body can't digest. The stomach doesn't have the enzymes to break down the chewy covering. The rest in the center of the kernel is digested...

Poopology 101....

So...don't eat corn unless you can chew it because you'll receive zero nutritional value?

That could be a good diet.
