    If you had to eliminate one color from the face of the Earth what would it be and why?

    Hard question isn't it?

    I think any color has its place of course, especially in small doses, but if I had to choose one color to eliminate it would that greyish brown color of bare fields and trees in the winter.  that drab monotone color overpowers everything when you live in the Midwest - yikes. 
    What color would you eliminate if you had to get rid of one?

    Anything teal, but if I had to narrow it down I would have to get rid of the one that started it all: Teal Green!

    I don't think that there is any color that I would completely wipe out, I mean black in the night sky,White Puffy Clouds,Green grass, yellow sun,red roses,blue ocean...I think all colors work in our world one way or another.

    Puce. I just don't like the sound of it. The etymology relates to  the color of the blood-stained droppings of fleas.

      I was going to sat puce too. I thought it was ticks- but similarly offensive. I wonder if anyone on the planet has puce as their favorite color? What is that person like?

    The light oranges that are more yellow than red. I don't mind a fiery orange, but the yellow-tinged oranges make me want to vomit.

    Ehh...yellow? No real reason other than its one of the lesser colors I wear very little if at all.

    That really disgusting colour somewhere between yellow and green that looks like vomit.

    I would say orange.  That is my least favorite color and I would miss it the least.

    Sorry to say that I wouldn't eliminate any color because then I might miss something that I was to see and learn about.  Thank for the thought provoking question.

    Beige because it is such a boring color to me. One day I was shopping for a dress for a special occasion, and tried on the same dress in fuchsia and in beige. The sales lady, an older (older to me then) said "Honey, that one (beige) just washes you out. You need to buy the fuchsia one, so I did.

    I dislike beige living rooms with a passion. I was at the (famous brand name) furniture store looking at living room furniture when I realized that every upholstered piece was a shade of beige or light brown. I complained to the clerk that there were no color choices, and left.

    Beige cars are a danger to everybody on the highway, second only to gray. They fade into the surroundings downtown and into the fog in poor weather. And, of course, their drivers are the ones who never turn on their lights until the night is pitch black.

      Yes, beige is a "neutral" color, which means it is kind of common. We need a little more weird in our life! Good answer
