Man, i bet there is one poor kid sitting on his chair, swinging his head back and forth to see if he can get the sticker to change to blue. I will call him Hugo. Poor Hugo

Nice to meet you, Spiderkid. You may call me Hugo.

In physics blue shift is when the light waves from an object moving towards you are compressed, making it appear blue. This is a joke though, because blue shift has only been seen in stars and you would never be able to move fast enough in a car to cause it

I hate myself for not knowing this...Looks like Electromagnetics and Newton Physics they teach us at school are useless(impractical).Thank you for providing me with the explenation of that magnificent phenomenon...

One of my teachers has strange eyes. She can actually see the red/blue shift. The red text in something looked closer and the blue text looked further away, or something like that.

I thought it was a cool story.

That's a form of color blindness. At least that's what the doctors told me, because I have the same problem. Also with red and green. It makes it hard for me to read something with those colors.

Not quite, it's from the doppler effect of bodies moving close to light speed compared to observer. The distortion changes the wavelength making it blue or light, depending on the direction. It can be used to measure distance due to the accelerated expansion of the universe and how that correlates to distance from the observer.

You'd have to be moving your face pretty damn fast

If I remember correctly its cause red shift are things moving away. Blue shift is when things are coming towards you (In a sense). The bumper sticker is red, meaning the car it is on is moving away from the reader. But in physics it would "become" blue if you sped up and caught up to the car.

I think I got that right.

Pretty close at least.
What color light is perceived as depends on the frequency and wavelength, so depending on the speed you are approaching or moving away from the source of the light, you shift the appearance of the light along the range.
Since light moves at... well... the speed of light, this means you'll shift the appearance of the light along the spectrum by a multiplier equivalent to 1+the fraction of the speed of light you are approaching the source. In other words to perceive that bumper sticker as blue, you'd have to be closing in on the car by 81,761,579 meters per second.

I'd have a bumper sticker that reads "If you can read this, you're tailgating. Back off."

"too fast" is an understatement.

Okay... i have never read such retarded comments before this (Colorblind???)... the reason why it would turn blue is because of the doppler effect. It is a joke, it would not really turn blue, however if it was a star or terrestrial object moving away from us, we would percieve it as blue.

Sorry for being stupid but I thought red pitched light was going towards it and blue was away, so wouldn't you be going backwards?

nope, red shift is due to objects moving away, hence why red shift seen throughout the universe helps support the Big Bang

Oh, Thanks I thought it was the other way around (obviously).
