    There's also a gulf between reflective colour and transmissive colour (or additive/subtractive), which means you are just never going to get the wide colour gamut of a transmissive system in your reflective prints. Some galleries use backlit transparencies for this...

    https://sciblogs.co.nz/public-health-expert/2020/07/10/weekly-deaths-declined-in-nzs-lockdown-but-we-still-dont-know-exactly-why/ The pandemic-related lockdown is possibly the most dramatic public health intervention in NZ history. It helped achieve the elimination of community transmission of the COVID-19 virus in NZ. But it was also associated with 548 fewer total deaths than...

    have you ever been in a paint store, or the paint section of a hardware supply store? No but I used to hand print T shirts. We had both Pantone swatches and a couple of computer-friendly equivalents. Customers gave us...

    Not having names for colours visible to human eyes in rainbows seems odd Oh, come on. You're writing in a language that doesn't have a word for female cousin, but I'm pretty sure you can tell the difference between them...

    the Leave.EU people are going to be working for the New Zealand First party in the upcoming elections. Yeah, nah, bra. One of them was in Aotearoa earlier this year, he went back to the hellhole and now he's stuck...

    technically Black (or Mixed, if you prefer). It's all about how long ago your ancestors came out of Africa, and just how far they have strayed from the pure stock. It used to be just European royalty who proudly...

    I'm talking about a pure category definition Yes. But you're using language straight out of some of the nastier parts of human politics/history, and you're being very strident about it. You don't have to *like* that nasty people have tainted...

    Goshdarnit! A with C, grr. Brainfart. Those subspecies may interbreed on occasion Am I right to suspect that you get non-transitive fertile offspring pairings? Species A can produce fertile offspring with species B, B with C, but not A with...

    There are arguments that the notion of a species called "homo sapiens" is a bit optimistic (let alone sap sap), and what we actually have is a literal clusterfuck of hominids breeding with each other whenever the opportunity arose. So...

    Moreover, the experts have kept quiet about their advice for months for whatever reason. The medical experts are very aware that they are not political or economic experts. Sadly the converse is often not the case, and often the people...

    binary choices are still for the infantile. One of the many reasons referenda are colossally stupid as an approach to governance. Disagree. A sensible referendum comes at the end of a process of decision-making, and the question is "should...

    craziness around is the left-right continuum. There was an article in some left wing nonsense-peddlar the other day suggesting that the English population especially has stopped breaking on left-right and there's no real single axis any more. Sure, there's socially...
