    All them rappers just thought they knew what it meant when they say “it’s a black thing”.

    The "ultimate black", Eh? Sounds ominous! Heh

    Maybe some kid will grow enough carbon nanotubes with household ingredients and make their bedroom invisible (at night)!

    Black has two different venues....pigment and light. Pigment black is the addition of all colors. As in no light is reflected back to the viewer. With light it is the absence of all colors. Artists have been fighting this forever. Most notably for me is Monet's haystacks. He wasn't painting haystacks he was trying to capture the colors of reflected light by the haystacks. Trying to paint light using pigment is fighting two opposing truths of our visual world. Pretty amazing concept to me

    I once was having a guitar body painted. The guy asked me what color I wanted. I said, "Black".
    He says, "Well there are all sorts of colors of black. There is everything from almost black to black that is as black as a politicians heart black. Which do you want."
    I replied, "the latter."

    I am guessing this must be even blacker?

    Does that mean my black guitars are still black, only look like they're black, not black at all or every colour under the Sun (apart from black). :confused:

    Now I want something that is the blackest black that you can turn up to 11.

    Sounds like the most fabulous object in the world.

    Blacker than a black cat, in a coal shed at midnight?
    I don't think so, somehow.

    It was a ship of classic, simple design, like a flattened salmon, twenty yards long, very clean, very sleek. There was just one remarkable thing about it.

    "It's so ... black!" said Ford Prefect, "you can hardly make out its shape ... light just seems to fall into it!"

    Zaphod said nothing. He had simply fallen in love.

    The blackness of it was so extreme that it was almost impossible to tell how close you were standing to it.

    "Your eyes just slide off it ..." said Ford in wonder. It was an emotional moment.
