I can only assume I had recently learned about the Red-Green-Blue light spectrum and thought it was super cool. It seems like that's something I should have learned sooner, but given my high school experience, who knows.
Then again, I did take a physics class. Would they have covered that? I don't recall doing particularly well in physics, but... Wait, why is noboy acting surprised that I didn't do well in physics?
