You mixed them to save the time of choosing. you need to save all the time you can. After all,  you want to retire soon, right?

Mac Paint 

Created by Polyducks

Sampled from a genuine Apple Macintosh CRT in 2021, it uses the light blue and faded black to carry 1bit art in the closest you can get to looking at an Apple Macintosh screen's colours without sitting in front of one. Take note that the colours are sampled from a daylight photograph of actual hardware then manually adjusted to best match the image, and is thus a representation of how the art displays as opposed to how it's recorded in software (which definitely would've been true black or white). Anyone has permission to use this palette for any purpose.

Y's Neutral Green 

Created by Yelta

It is hard to make neutral palettes with color. Sometimes, there is just no color that fits the right vibe and you're better off with Black and White. After a lot of research and analysis, I figured dark green with a hint of blue to be the the second best option there. Grayscale Value Difference: 74 ; Cielab Brightness: 61
