Does "wow" in this context mean "amaze, astound, or word of like import"?

How many of these people are there? Do you know each one personally?

And now for a completely random set of questions:

Is color an acronym for something?

Are we talking about actual color - as in the reflected light frequency of things?

The wowing - one time event? Happens more than once? Happens often?

In a professional context?
Personal context?
In the course of everyday life?

Are the "they"s always the same people/person?
Sometimes the same?
Do you know them?
DO they know you?
Personally?

To try and get some action on this puzzle, let me throw something out here.
I struggled with the title because I was trying to decide whether the word "through" or "with" was more fitting. Either way, I don't think it matters much. The fact is that color is involved, but it's not really in an artistic sense as one would first think.

Would you be unable to wow them in the same manner using black and white only?
Is your wowing related to your profession?
Do they come to be wowed?

science involved? No pigments involved? Well, there is color involved, so I guess pigment is too. Please clarify your question.

Would you be unable to wow them in the same manner using black and white only? No
Is your wowing related to your profession? No
Do they come to be wowed? Yesish, but somewhat of a FA.

Do they come at all then? Or are they just wowed as they go on their way?

Do they come at all then? Not really Or are they just wowed as they go on their way? Their way where? This is a tough one and may be somewhat of an FA because it's not like people are coming to see a show.

OK, in a desperate attempt to get some more action on this puzzle, I'll throw a big hint out there. There is also a time aspect involved. Figure this will go fairly quickly now...
