    I don't think black would be very appealing.

    Post 30 was not just a response, it's a clue ;).

    I'm pretty sure that this doesn't answer either of the outstanding questions, nor does it answer any of the questions that already have an answer.

    Jutley, no logic or any kind of code behind the color sequence. They represent things of a similar nature (or not nature) that you have certainly seen, though usually not all together.

    The other 2 have me stumped, even the one that's been answered.
    What is "W, H, C, O, N, E" ? I'd really like to know why I should feel stupid. ;)

    I know how to browse newgroups, but have little else Usenet experience. Have to let someone else get this one.

    Still stumped on the color one....

    Here comes another hint for mine ...

    You do the hokey poky and rotate yourself around, that's what it's all about.

    Another color clue: while the 4 things are similar, only one is equal. Recall that logic doesn't apply, but it may help to set a table.

    I'm looking at Agent menus while I'm doing things with my left foot and my right foot and it's making my head hurt. :D

    Yup, the 4 major sweeteners, in the order they became available.

    white - sugar
    pink - Nutrasweet
    blue - Equal
    yellow - Splenda

    Rats! I thought about that, but said "Naw that can't be it, why would there be an order?"

    At first glance I'm guessing something ending in 5.

    Yes, but 5 is not the answer to the question.
