I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

All colors are subject to perception. This is why I say they are subjective.
It's in the definition I posted from wiki.

This is all I'm saying. I'm not arguing that colors don't exist, I'm simply saying that they are subjective in nature and therefore not an objectively true thing.

If you are arguing on behalf of colors being objectively true then I will object.
If you are not arguing that colors are objectively true then I cannot argue back.

Yeah but it's starting to get boring. I need a more interesting problem to talk about.

Fair enough. I am currently trying to rank order a variety of classifiers based on data I acquire through the Myo to capture gestures. Should I prefer 10-fold cross validation or leave-one-out? And why?
