      Colors determined by wavelengths...and yes, those colors determined by our perception.

      Speakers of different languages "hear" certain common sounds quite distinctly. American cats say meow; French cats say ron-ron; German, schnurr-schnurr; Japanese, niago.

      A not so definitve answer, but fun to read and to research and put together nonetheless!

      Why do people call coffee a Cup o' Joe?




      Collective bits of information on the slang term Cup o' Joe ...

      The phrase "cup of Joe" goes back to the mid-1840s

      The name could have been a modification of java or jamoke, which were other names for coffee. It could also have been influenced by expressions at that time, such as "an ordinary Joe."

      "Joe" is related to either the use of Joe as the common man (coffee is the common man's drink) or as a derivative of Java.

      ENJOY your 'cup o' joe'!!

      I think maybe the accent makes it: the R might be more gutteral and the N softer than in English. LOL!

      Yeah it's probably more like a meow purr...maybe like rrow rrow....not like the song 'Do Ron Ron' LOL!

      ...but here is a cat doing the 'Do Ron Ron':



      p.s. it isn't a fact that this cat is actually dancing 'The Do Ron Ron'.

      I like my daily cup of Joe. I have always wondered where this came from...I thought perhaps from the Depression era....but wow, 90 years before that!

      That's quite interesting. Humans can be the same way sometimes.

      You have to raise a glass to Zolt for doing such a wonderful Job.

      Everyone loves Hubble's spectacular images but when these images first arrive at Earth they are black and white. A year later they glow with a rainbow of colors thanks to experts like Zolt Levay. Levay works for about a year to assign colors and create the final mosaic out of 48 seperate pictures.
