Isn't it sort of like, Optics? I mean, in school, we're learning about the colors and stuff that make up white light, and (it's kind of stupid, really) but I think we had to know the order of the colors of the rainbow (so like, the colors that make up white light) on a test. (But I guess that information doesn't usually appear on a test, does it?)

Three things
Apparently not all of us know.
I am doubtful of the pot of gold.
And monochrome rainbows are better than colored rainbows.
100% of deaths are somehow caused by science.
Don't be a statistic.
Don't do science.
