Being colour-blind excluded me from certain jobs in the US Marines – but I was so determined that my recruiter took pity on me, giving me a colour vision test book to memorise before taking the eye test.

Later that week, I took the test and successfully recited each colour in the book. The doctor was impressed. “Excellent,” he said. “Just one thing: I opened the book on page two.”
