I just got to work, and already I’ve heard something so completely dumb that… augh.
“Hello Candace [not my name], The banner looked excellent, just make the text a little darker and that ought to be fine.” (This was followed by a giant animated smilie…)
Make the text darker than BLACK!?
Geez, well… I’ll try… I mean, I guess there’s superblack… It’s 25x blacker than regular black! But I don’t really have access to pigment like that at Kinko’s. I’m pretty much limited to HP ink. Anyway, you know what else this reminds me of…
Zaphod’s attention however was elsewhere. His attention was riveted on the ship standing next to Hotblack Desiato’s limo. His mouths hung open.
“That,” he said, “that…is really bad for the eyes…”
Ford looked. He too stood astonished.
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. He bit his lip.
