In a World of Black and White


      I woke up today to ANOTHER snowy morning. I'm getting sick of this black and white motif and my fart machine is too. He does have a pretty awesome fur coat but his balls are nonetheless stuck in a chilly situation so he's far from impressed. Although I'm desperate for some colors and warmth, you have to work with what you've got so I've come up with a post, similar to this one here.
      First, a fun snow and white related fact. Did you know that polar bears actually don't have white fur? Each hair is without pigment and transparent thus reflecting what's around it - whiteness. But they can look kind of yellowish because they're dirty or greenish in ZOOs because of the algae colonies.
      Next is a fun black and white related fact. When I think of black and white, I think of prison uniforms, mimes and zebras. Of course the coolest out of the duochromatic trio are zebras. Did you know that their skin is actually black? And you can try as hard as you can, but you can never domesticate a zebra. You can have a pet dolphin, a pet cheetah, a pet horse or a pet stick insect, but zebras are too crazy to get along with humans. Or too smart.
      At the bottom, you'll find a snow related joke. Enjoy the photos!

Aaaaa, snow ...
The only time 10 centimeters (4 inches) can keep a woman in bed all day.


      Enjoy your weekend! See you back next Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

    Cool collection of anything that has to do with black and white, I love the artsy fashion photos.
    I think I'm the only person in the world who'll never get fed up with snow. Everytime it snows I'm like "Aaaaaw snow! Hooray!" and then everyone else wants to beat me... ;D

  15. Finally someone who calls black and white DUOchromatic, instead of monochromatic. I know it's been generalised and even books about art say monochromatic can be in shades of grey and black and white, but come on, mono means one...Anyway, rant over. I love zebras and now I love them even more because I didn't know they couldn't be domesticated. I like that they're like that, impossible to be tamed.

    Once upon a time, I thought about being a translator and though I speak four languages, I am not qualified to be one. However, with the appalling job that some portuguese translators do for TV and cinema work, sometimes I think I should have become one just so I didn't have to see such poorly translated dialogues. I have never been to Slovenia and I must confess I know very little about it (she says, shamefaced), but now I need to go learn something since I have 'met' someone from there!
