[unrelated, although I suppose the critique applies to multiple posters]

I swear, if someone started a thread titled "Water is wet," you would reply, "no, water is dry" just to be contrarian.
Sometimes. Other times I'd post something like "Well, not 'wet' exactly. How about 'Water is moist'?"

The moistness.  Of the water.  Very interesting.  (Interthreaduality:  I will water the plant now.)

The purity and essence of the waters, do not forget that!

Well, but what you don't understand...

<snort>  Can't even type that with a straight face.  I'm sure my colleagues wonder at the giggles from my office.

And the distinction is so colorist.

And anyway, we'll just end up in a train wreck when we can't agree whether the primary colors are to be additive or subtractive.

I just started reading a book about colors and I never knew about the additive/subtractive issues (the book looks at the history from both chemistry and artistic povs).

I love the way people take off in this thread. Way cool!

You may not realize it, but you just gave me permission to plug one of my favorite books of all time!
