A vibrant and clear spectrum of colors refracting through my apparently prismatic window onto my arm.

What an interesting new bot I've seen now.
And a highly active bot at that, check out it's profile. It's posting three times per minute!
Do you.... you know fuck foxes?
Yes, I fuck foxes.
Do you moderate okbr?
I feel like I'm in some kind of bizarro episode.
I reckon Its supposed to say soxes, he's sox Shafter
It is my firm personal belief that people should not fuck foxes
Why should we listen to /u/The_BussFromSpeed ?
I've seen that movie and at no point was there a scene where the bus fucked a fox. So gotta give this guy credit for sticking by his personal philosophy.
That's not even that fast. I've seen karma farming bots post twice in 4 seconds!
Looks like some poor soul is learning regular expression.
didnt even need regex for this though
Wait you're not even a bot?
I think the owner just replied using the bot account
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA how many was that?
At least 12
I actually spat my drink out reading this
good bot aaaaaaaaaaaa
I hated this level in Mario Kart.
I can hear this comment. Mostly it's the sound of the Lakitu picking my ass up from falling off the map.
I spent a month mastering only rainbow road so I could show off in Mario kart tourneys. I suck at Mario kart, but I'm really good at rainbow road
Just think, if you dedicate the same time to all the other courses, you’ll kick ass at Mario Kart.
Meep Meep Meep
(all while half the race passes you)
And the trumpet music...
Until you learn the secret jump-off short cut.
It's not really secret, it's not intended and is unlikely to ever work. Even still, the rest of the course is not easy.
You can fail the jump a thousand times. The only time anyone talks about it is when you make it.
Gotta risk it for the biscuit
It’s those moments that make it worth the attempt every lap.
Sounds like you described the one reason for the ongoing success of the gambling industry.
It is by far my favorite level.
You know why? Because now we are all fucking terrible drivers that can't stay on the track. I am not the only one falling off every turn anymore!
I mastered the N64 version just because my siblings hated it.
Definitely levels the playing field.
I love a lighter kart, but I always get bumped off on any Rainbow Road.
100% agreed. Small dood strugglez
It was my favorite lol! Though it would kick my ass now, I have no doubt.
Oh it looks like you're in first place. Would be a shame if someone rolled a blue shell

Edit. I literally just got back from listening to it. With Colour.
I knew I was gonna be late here to make this comment.... it had to be said 👍
This comment gave me legit goosebumps.
Wouldn't that make you...
This is my favorite comment by fucking far. CAPTAIIINNN PLANEEETTTT
The power is Yours!!!!
Is it heart in english? In the german version it is Loooooove.
BAHAHAHAHA! And here I am thinking that power couldn't sound anymore lame ! X'D
We had a good laugh out of it every time.
Dang, why u had to do my mans Ma-Ti like that with the \*sigh\* tho hahaha
Protect the planet, or I'll turn you into a fuckin' tree!
Pretty sure you have a poptart cat on your shoulder right now.
Nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan….
Window refraction? I think you misunderstand. That is the gaybeam
Hes been chosen 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈🏳️🌈
Congrats, you are LGBTQ+ now, please do not resist
First question, Why are you gay?
Just saw that interview for the first time the other week. Hilariously bad, but the guy being interviewed kept a cool head.
Second question, does your mom know you're gay?
Oh my *god* Karen, you can't just *ask* people why they're gay...
This is exactly what the Republicans were warning us about! Alex Jones will be talking about this tomorrow.
They are turning the freaking windows gay!
Welcome to the alphabet mafia
All hail OP, the big gay.
Photons celebrating pride month
I thought you were a bot 😢
I did too...WTF u/Letter-A-Counter ?!?
I really thought this was OP showing off their very impressive pride tattoo tbh
OMG science, Is all matter and light gay? That means everyone is gay
Always has been 🔫
Username doesn't check out
Rainbows are tight butthole.
that ain't counting the letter A
You are a busy bot for a 4 hours old account.
A Gayzer beam, if you will.
*Pixar would like to know your location*
God is telling you to go forth and be fabulous.
Yup. When it goes from his heart all the way down to his fingers, that means that it's a serious gay infection and has to go to the hospital for treatment.
Or you know, have a party?
You gay, bro
Biden is out of control. ^(/s)
Why couldn’t it have been.. ice beam, or fuck it even solar beam :(
You have been chosen. This Is The Way.
This is way better tho...you should be happy that you were chosen 🌈
Now taste the rainbow
Because gay beam is best beam
Yep he's gay now
that is some insanely high quality glass and cutting, to get that crisp of a line and splitting of the light...
Seriously, this isn't easy to do. Wonder if it's real
The odds are low.
Nah.. You just big gay OP. Stop complicating things.
Yeah, he was obviously choosen by the Bigger Gae and is trying to make us jealous
OP has the loooooong gay. Good for OP!
I’m colorblind and for some reason this is way more vivid than an actual rainbow. Looks like I can see more colors on ur arm
I have never seen such a brightly colored rainbow before either
That's because actual rainbows rely on light being reflected by a few tiny water droplets in the air, which don't send much of the colorful spectecal to the observer. The window on the other hand only needs bend the direct sunlight slightly and project it onto a solid surface.
Look at this guy with his fancy words and fancy plastic garbage can, and fancy leather couch..
Roger Waters just blessed you. Don’t take it for granted
I thought he does that by giving a golden shower
After all we’re only ordinary men
We’re just two lost souls pissin in a fish bowl
Year after year, pissin over the same old ground
But how we found the same old tear
Wish you were clear
I came here to read all the comments about how you are gay now, but it got me wondering, what is the science behind this? What angle would you need etc. To get a beam like this?
And what does the window look like? I've got a couple of prismatic windows in my house, but they don't make rainbows like this.
Windows that have the edge of the glass visible can do this (with the correct angle of course). Louvres, or two panes that are joined with silicone but still have a bit of free glass edge
So you would need a strong source of white light (or light that is composed of a broad range of visible light frequencies). The sun will do for most purposes. Then you need an object that is capable of dispersing a ray of light. This can be a) an 3D object (prism) with a refractive index greater than air or b) a diffraction grating.
Windows fall under a) so I will talk mostly about that. Rainbows occur in nature around sources of water (waterfalls, rainfall) because the light disperses through the water droplets. The different colours in white light will bend (refract) at different angles due to their varied frequency. Ex, blue, located on the higher end of the visible spectrum, will bend much more sharply than red, which is located at the lower end. The reason for this is because the refractive index in materials is actually also frequency-dependent, so light at different frequencies (for visible light) will experience variation in the refractive index, and by [Snell's Law](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snell%27s_law) will change how it bends in the medium.
The reason why [prisms](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dispersion_(optics)) work so well is because there are two interfaces where light bends: upon entry, and upon exiting. This greatly exaggerates the space between the colours such that the separation is visible to the naked eye.
To maximize chances of getting a rainbow, you need a material that strongly separates each colour wavelength. As for the angle of incidence, likely you will want to enter at an oblique angle (as per Snell's Law). The exact value depends on material properties and shape. For more maths on this subject and how it relates to rainbows, [I recommend this website.](https://plus.maths.org/content/rainbows)
Edit: For thin, flat windows, it is hard to get a rainbow due to relatively [low dispersion.](https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/483912/why-doesn-t-a-normal-window-produce-an-apparent-rainbow). You need a triangular shape, or a shape where the two interfaces are not parallel.
Amazing explanation :) question! What determines the orientation of rainbows out in nature? Like why do they look one way instead of flipped 180 degrees or shifted in any direction?
The center of the arc of the rainbow (a circle, really, but the ground is in the way), your head, and the sun form a direct line. The sunlight will always be coming from behind you and the angle of the colors has to do with how they bounce inside a raindrop and spread out. The angle of the rainbow relative to your line going from the sun through the back of your head is fixed: no matter how far away the rainbow is, the width of the arc will always be the same angle. Each individual color will be at the same angle, even. It doesn’t even matter how big the water droplets are.
A double rainbow has an extra bounce inside the raindrop, and that reverses the order of the colors just the same way a mirror flips everything. But the extra bounce means you lose 96% of the light compared to the main rainbow, which is why it’s so much dimmer and needs brighter, unobstructed light and no haze or rain dimming the sunlight before it gets to the rain that is reflecting the rainbow. All rainbows will have doubles (and triples, and quadruples, etc) we just often can’t tell the difference between them and the background sky.
First non-sexuality related post! I was wondering a science as well -- what kind of sun tan lines is this going to leave?
Came here looking for a comment about the Livestrong bracelet, but alas...
you have been chosen by the ✨faeries of gaë✨
Aye, the Fae o' Gae
When the acid starts to kick in....
Do you feel rainbow powers coursing through your veins?
Get a tattoo of Nyan cat in your upper arm and lineup the rainbow
That’s the trail of a rare Nyan Snail
I have never seen such bright vibrant colors in a refraction like that.
Woah what kind of windows do you have.
You could say your true colors are showing
The Dark Side of the Moon is near
You are now r/suddenlygay
Years of training tells me that this is a special quest item
nyan cat is back!
I'd say that's a smidge more than mildly interesting. I'm interested by like a 7/10 margin
It looks fake.
If its fake, then op still deserves credit, because they even got the scattering/refracting on the arm hair.
I think there was a spectrum on him but it’s heavily edited. The rainbow looks almost chalked on instead of being more transparent, I’m not sure but it shouldn’t be so opaque.
Zoom in on the elbow area, looks like it's paint imo, and would make sense as I've never seen a prism cast light like this, uber bright, uber distinct, uber sharp, prisms are fuzzy.
If you look closely, the blue side is darker than the skin immediately outside the rainbow, which it shouldn't be (because the refracted light can only add to the ambient). Of course, that could be either due to increasing saturation or due to outright drawing it on.
I kind of wonder if it's overloading the sensors in the camera slightly with the current exposure settings the camera automatically used, and so it's blowing out the individual color sensors. spectral violet doesn't look quite as purple as that in real life, normally speaking. it also could be the built-in HDR effect on a phone camera, those can make mess ups like this. but my guess is that it's just too bright for the camera and as a result it's getting color distortion.
Rainbow face chalk. My kids have it
Why does everything rainbow have to be considered gay nowadays lol. It's a crazy vibrant color spectrum, looks awesome
For real lol.. I’ve never seen the color spectrum so vividly in person
Your Sailor Guardian powers are weak.
All you touch and all you see, is all your life will ever be
So like... what’s at the end of the rainbow?
Eat it! Taste the rainbow
Actually that’s because of the lsd
You didn’t notice all of the little pieces of paper in your beer?
I’ve seen window rainbows but that is VIBRANT
The great Pink Floyd incident.
Put... put your dick in it.
The big gay has chosen you
There is no dark side of that arm.
Congrats! Youre gay now!
Is this how you find out you’re gay?
Yeah so this is fake. Light scattered through a prism fans out, that's the reason you can see the individual colors. It does not form a laser- straight beam like this, the colors are not this vibrant, and the red and violet should fade more the further they are from the prism.
OP is a big fat phony.
Someone's going to be digging for the buried treasure tonight.
Well that’s just fabulous!
can I see the pot of gold on your shoulder
blow some smoke through that please and record a video.
HELP SHIT IM COLORBLIND
You're gonna catch Gay
Rainbow Airbender tattoos... Rainbowbender?
Really? No pot of gold or leprechaun references? I didn’t scroll quite to the bottom, but close. You should hold a bowl of popcorn or something (maybe Lucky Charms lol) in your hand and take another photo when it happens again tomorrow. Very cool light effect!
Rainbow super power! Rainbow man... He... Uh... Shines a rainbow!? On his... Um... Hand. Rainbow handy man!?
This is proof that nature is not a corporation: it supports pride outside of June
Roy G Biv
For those who didn't learn that in school, from Wikipedia "ROYGBIV or Roy G. Biv is an acronym for the sequence of hues commonly described as making up a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The initialism is sometimes referred to in reverse order, as VIBGYOR."
Oh shit he's mainlining the gay. I need 4cc's of fabulous, stat.
You're gay now. No way around it.
So.. can I take you out Friday?
Is it gay if you knock one out with that arm now?
You have been chosen....GAY!!! 🌈
You have been marked with gay
