Here's a puzzle: there are 3 primary colors; red, blue and yellow. . .


Mix them to get the other colors. Now, scientifically, WHITE is made up of all the colors; and BLACK is considered the absence of all color. How, then, when we mix all of the colors in the paint box, we get a muddy dark brown to black mess, instead of white???
