    Actually black is not a color but the absence of all color (but of course I know it is called a color, what are you going to say the flag was silver, gold and the absence of color?:-) Actually no color exists as color.

    Thus if we see red, it's because our cones sensitive to the wavelength around 700-760 nm's send information that we translate into red. Thus if we see red there, then our cones are responding to reflected nm's. Now, my guess is you are betting that something red is absorbing everything but the wavelengths we perceive as red, and you will be right here. A red paper absorbs all other wavelengths and reflects the "red" ones (If I may condense that rather than to say "reflects the wavelengths in the nm range that our retinal cones respond to."

    That said I don't think I can find 5 BEST things to say about any color (if it really existed as color) so how can I find 20 BEST things to say about black, the absence of color?

    Sorry,  but I fail this question horribly and I know it is probably because I am not in touch with my feminine side, that is if it exists, and how would I know? I am a man.

    1, It's beautiful. 2. In clothes it matches with anything. 3. I knew a poor man who went to college. He bought all black clothes cause he had few clothes and explained to me, "It helps to have a uniform." 4. It's a lovely accent color in a house. 5. Great for kitchens to have black granite counters. 6. In a novel about a socialite, she was supposed to be rich but hubby didn't give her a clothes budget so she bought all black clothes and suddenly it came into fashion. 7. You sleep well at night. 8. Many nocturnal animals wake up at night, as do insomniacs. 9. The earth would lose half of its fascination without those nocturnal creatures. 10. Candles look better at night, as do fireplaces.

    I got 10, at least...

    1- It is cool looking, 2- goes with practically everything, 3- beauty ( it is a  beautiful color), 4-cant see the dirt very easily, 5- popular color (seen more often than many other colors), 6-sexy looking for women underwear, 7- used a lot for formal wear too, 8- dominates some races hair color (African, Asian, middle eastern, 9- popular color for a car, 10- The dark of the night is black and beautiful, 12- the old black board from school days, 13- The color for many animals (especially dogs), 14- Black berries, 15- black olives, 16, black pepper for seasoning, 17- the color of soil that is rich in nutrients for growing plants and trees,  18- makeup (eye liner, mascara), 19, black nail polish, 20- black shoes.
    So I may have overstated some of the obvious, but this was a tough list.

    1. It's the absence of color..how poetic 2. I can wear it with anything and not look tragic. 3. It has so many meanings to it symbolically in different cultures around the world. 4. I have semi-black hair. 5. That depending on your views, the world is not just black (evil) or white (good). 6. Cows are usually depicted with black spots...and they provide so many dairy products. 7. Black is the color of Night...or just the absence of sight... 8. It's said that every girl has a little black dress handy (or black pants). 9. Most electronic device screens go black when turned off...interesting, no? 10. My favorite shirt is black. 11. Black was associated with fertile ground in Ancient Egypt. 12. Black leather jackets are awesome. 13. Black motorcycles riding through the night..too cool. 14. Black is the shade that keeps us cool from the sun. 15. All my shoes are black. 16. Balancing the Black of Yin with the White of Yang = Complete Harmony. 17. So many words rhyme with it! Mack, lack, sack, jack,... 18. Black is associated with death and death is part of the cycle of life.. so, Hakuna Matata right? 19. Black is comforting especially in times of grief. 20. Anyone can wear it and it is always in season.

    Finally finished! big_smile That was fun~

    I thought white was the absence of color and black was the opposite.
