DH always says, dark black!

While artists consider black a colour scientists do not because black is the absence of all colour.

I bought a new black top and put it on with my black jeans and the two blacks were different, my top bring new and the jeans having been washed smile

Not really.. isnt true black owned by some super rich guy who puts it on expensive watch faces.

Most blacks available to the public are not black at all: they dont absorb all colour light. Thats how we see contours etc on black fabrics not the optical illusion of nothingness. And are just shades of dark grey or navy

This is what black actually looks like (or doesnt look like because the eyes cannot see shapes painted true black)

Look up Vantablack & black 2.0

Objects painted REAL black disappear and look like black holes

Are you having a very boring day in the office gillybob or have you been cloned?

Black is such a hard word, shall we call it noir?

Nothing is ever truly black or white.

A zebra?

Some things are truly black and white.

Black is Black, I want my baby back. It's grey it's grey, since she went away. What can I do, cos I-I-I-I I'm feeling blue!

The first single record I ever bought, it cost 7/6. Los Bravos.
