Orange you glad? Personally, I found myself green with envy when I red about it. The Purpurous One is probably not impressed at all.

This is strictly hearsay, but I've been told that college pranksters put methylene blue, a dye from chem. lab into a mark's wine or grape juice and he pissed blue for a week.

This is a waste of resources. Yttrium is a rare earth element that is used for making phosphors for televisions. It should be put to better uses than dying blue jeans and shirts.

Also, how toxic is this compound? Yttrium and indium are heavy metals. Yttrium oxide is quite toxic when injected.

This is an interesting development, but should never see the light of commercialization unless there is a better use for it than dying fabric
