A concept invented by John Logie Baird in 1928 when he got bored with black and white. Black and white is considered to be more "classic" and timeless by most people, with colour generally only accepted in today's world as a means to making commentary on televised snooker tournaments simpler.
John Logie Baird (turning in grave): If I could turn back time, I think on balance I wouldn't have invented colour.
Graverobber: Why is that John?
Baird: I just don't think it has stood the test of time.

The PROPER way of spelling colour.
Or color as the americans spell it.
Americans will probably spell it wrong because British spelling is too SUPERIOR and they can't understand it.
The FIRST way of spelling it, and the right way.
British dude: Do you like the colour of my thirt?
American dude: No that color is stoopid. I love pink!
British dude: YOU CAN'T EVEN SPELL!!!!!

The observed property of light which is closely related to its wavelength.
A HeNe laser has a distinctive red colour of wavelength usually around 633nm.

Calling someone coloured is often considered racist.

Issac Newton decided there should be seven colours in the spectrum, even though only six are particularly well defined. Indigo only exists because of Newton's religious beliefs.

Colour is the correct spelling. :P

The British and original way of spelling the American way of 'color.' Personally, I hate the way Americans spell words like color, favor and behavior while I love the way my country and others spell them, such as colour, favour and behaviour. You can easily find out an American Grammar Nazi (abbreviated: AGN) by just taunting them with the spelling. If they say "PISS OFF YOU FUCKING CUNT; IT'S SPELT COLOR" you can easily correct them by saying: "Colour is the original way, you mcdonalds eater"
*I DO NOT MEAN OFFENCE TO THOSE WHO LOVE MCDONALDS.
British Person: "This colour is vibrant and hurts my eyes"
AGN: "IT'S COLOR YOU FUCKING PIECE OF COCK-SUCKING BRITON!"
British Community: "Here we go again.."

Something that looks like it should be pronounced (cuh-lOW-er) instead of (cah-lur).
Seriously, why not spell it the way it's pronounced, idiots?
