Stress relief, supposedly. A few years ago I had an eye operation that
required you to keep your head down for three days. You can only read so
many books, watch so many DVDs, and listen to so many audio recordings
before going bonkers so I got one of the books. I couldn't get into it.
I "turn off" my brain by using it less. Something less demanding than what I was doing. But I don't have to turn it off completely. In fact doing so makes the brain bored so it ponders what you were trying to stop thinking about.
Well they have been around since I can remember, indeed, many of the old
Puzzler books my mother had on our holidays to do on the beach had a colour
by numbers picture inside the back cover, and that was way back in the70s
Maybe you have been asleep. I' also remember the computer equivalent of this
as well back in the 80s. I never did get that as many computers only had8
colours and a brighter version of each, though bright black was not.
This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...
On holidays we did proper puzzle books, things requiring some problem solving.
Yes I had a ZX Spectrum with bright for each of 8 colours. 0 was black, 2 was red, 5 was cyan, 7 was white, can't remember the others. I can't recall what bright black did. Grey?
