Here's the real reason why the Soviet Union was so successful in sports competition, why South Korea placed strongly in the World Cup and why the Chinese are always a force to be reckoned with in the Olympics.

"Scientists don't precisely known how wearing red might give athletes an advantage. But the color delivers implicit messages of vigor and danger. When people get angry, their faces turn red. It's also a reason why stop signs are red. So are most Ferraris."

:car16: VROOM!!

On the serious side though, they seem to have conducted their research in a logical manner. Thoughts, anyone?

I saw that.

I also noted someone saying you are more likely to get into a car accident if you are listening to "Ride of the Valkeries" by Wagner.

I wear a red mouthpiece. Does that make me invincible or just provide a better target to my opponent?

Im going to get a red koral gi, a red belt, and dye my hair red.

Hopefully no one will piss on me trying to put out a fire.

A joke!

This thread needs a joke!

A merchant vessel was travelling along pirate infested waters when his first mate told him that pirates were approaching. Without giving cause for concern the captain tells his mate, "Go down below and bring me my red shirt.". The first mate did what he was told. The pirates attacked. And although casualties were taken the merchant ship sailed on.

The next day 2 pirate ships were spotted. And again the captain tells his first mate,"Go down below and bring me my red shirt." Once again there were casualties when the pirates attacked but they survived. That is when the first mate asked the captain, "Captain, why do you wear a red shirt when the pirates attack?" The captain replied,"So that if I am wounded in battle, the blood will not show and my men will not lose heart and continue to fight!".

The next day the first mate tells the captain, "Sir, there are 10 pirate ships on the horizon and mean to board us!" The captain replied, "Go down below and get me my brown pants."

Clearly they're using a deep shade of orange.

Or maybe their opponents get a similar boost from seeing a lot of red too.
Put on red sunglasses/red contacts. That way only you will get extra powers.

I actually think there might be something to this. Weightlifters sniff ammonia before the lift to get some extra rush.

EDIT - I suck and should learn to read articles thoroughly before commenting on them.

I think I'm missing something here, but I hope I'm not the only one.

Blue cancels red, so to their enemies they appear to be naked.
