Today's Humbling Moment

Here's a question: Without looking it up in google, what color is Chartreuse?

I know the answer, so I don't need it from you. I am only asking what people think it is when they hear the color, because as far as I can tell, most people think it is a different color than it actually is.

I think the key question is, "How old is the person you're asking?" It skews a lot more yellow for me then it does my daughter.

That's better than me. Because my entire group of friends believed it was some degree of pink (The three answers: pink, orangish pink, and light purple). Each of us could "picture" the color, too. Apparently we had no idea what Chartreuse actually was.
