Why is finding info on the net so FRUSTRATING?

    I'm trying to find answers to an assignment I have to turn in and the internet is so frustrating when trying to find something. I tried using google and yahoo and nothing. I even tried that worthless "Ask Jeeves" site but it never answers my questions, just gives me a list of sites that also don't answer my questions. Why is something so simple so difficult for me. I'm a stupid person.

    Anyways these is all I need to know

    1) List the 3 properties of color.

    2) Name the 3 colors of light our EYES are receptive too.

    3) The difference between Pantone spot colors and Pantone process colors.

    4) Name the person responsible for discovering that white light is not a homogenous entitym but rather us composed of various colors.

    5) Color can relative to several variables. Name one.


    Anyone can help me out that would be great. Where in the hell does this professor expect us to find this stuff at anyways?

    Maybe you're having problems finding things because of the abundance of typos in your post and subject line.

    Just a guess.

    I just googled every one of your questions and got the answer on the first page. Took me about three minutes.

    The problem is you named yourself after the wrong band. You should have picked Bad English!

    Terrible, terrible. I know, it sucked. Sorry.

    Seriously, your typos guarantee that you won't get those answers. Spell check, then try again.

    Everywhere. It took me longer to format the quoting in this post than it did to pull the answers from the aether.

    Thank you for the help

    This is why i'm dropping out of school after this semester. I can't do this stuff because i'm a dumb person.

    Dropping out is probably not a good idea. I'd say you couldn't do this stuff because you didn't know how.

    Look at what my searches were for, and you'll have a better idea of how to get the results from Google that are what you need. Learn the kinds of phrases that go into search engines and get results, and you can find this kind of stuff more easily. :hyper:

    I wouldn't suggest that. I, too, am a dumb person, and school is the only place I feel welcome. Although, sometimes it just makes me feel more dumb.

    :D
