    About fog lights, it's true that longer (redder) wavelengths of light scatter less and shorter (bluer) wavelengths of light scatter more in fog and in the atmosphere. (Blue skies are scattered light; red and orange sunrises and sunsets are what's left over.) The yellow and amber fog lights are white (mixed wavelengths) with most of the blues taken away. They're not a single pure wavelength.

    I suppose fog lights aren't red because (1) the more aggressively filtered an incandescent bulb or lamp is, the hotter and more inefficient it is; (2) it's easier to recognize objects in a broader spectrum of light; and, most importantly, (3) we don't want anything on the front of a car to be confused with taillights or brake lights (or an emergency vehicle).

    Coming back to some (ancient) actual humor, this radio exchange supposedly happened between a U.S. Navy ship and Canadian authorities:

    US Ship: Please divert your course 0.5 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

    CND reply: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    US Ship: This is the Captain of a US Navy Ship. I say again, divert your course.

    CND reply: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course!

    US Ship: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS CORAL SEA, WE ARE A LARGE WARSHIP OF THE US NAVY. DIVERT YOUR COURSE NOW!!

    CND reply: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
