The White Thread
— rdbrewer

"White is a color, the perception of which is evoked by light that stimulates all three types of color sensitive cone cells in the human eye in nearly equal amounts and with high brightness compared to the surroundings. A white visual stimulation will be void of hue and grayness.[1]

White light can be generated in many ways. The sun is such a source, electric incandescence is another. Modern light sources are fluorescent lamps and light-emitting diodes. An object whose surface reflects back most of the light it receives and does not alter its color will appear white, unless it has very high specular reflection.

Since white is the extreme end of the visual spectrum (in terms of both hue and shade), and since white objects - such as clouds, snow and flowers - appear often in nature, it has frequent symbolism. Human culture has many references to white, often related to purity and cleanness, whilst the high contrast between white and black is often used to represent opposite extremes." --Wikipedia

10 Furthermore, the white thread, being extremely extremist is holding America hostage. We've tried to negotiate with the white thread but all it wants to do it talk, even though it won't talk to us. This clearly means the white thread wants to destroy America and have our seniors eating white cat food. Please tweet the white thread and tell it to stop being to extremely white, radical and racist.

61 This work represents to the causal observer a mere simplicity of form and function. To the more astute artistic connoiseur, it is rich with subleties of nuance, inviting the viewer to gaze upon seamless continuity with a relaxed sense of uniformity the likes of which were heretofore unknown in the art world. It is a true work of artistic genius, befitting our audience and its sensibilities, informing and shaping the viewer into an aura of calm studiousness and deep introspection into the very meaning of life itself.

103 Moby Dick

Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way? Or is it, that as in essence whiteness is not so much a color as the visible absence of color; and at the same time the concrete of all colors; is it for these reasons that there is such a dumb blankness, full of meaning, in a wide landscape of snows- a colorless, all-color of atheism from which we shrink? And when we consider that other theory of the natural philosophers, that all other earthly hues — every stately or lovely emblazoning — the sweet tinges of sunset skies and woods; yea, and the gilded velvets of butterflies, and the butterfly cheeks of young girls; all these are but subtile deceits, not actually inherent in substances, but only laid on from without; so that all deified Nature absolutely paints like the harlot, whose allurements cover nothing but the charnel-house within; and when we proceed further, and consider that the mystical cosmetic which produces every one of her hues, the great principle of light, for ever remains white or colorless in itself, and if operating without medium upon matter, would touch all objects, even tulips and roses, with its own blank tinge — pondering all this, the palsied universe lies before us a leper; and like wilful travellers in Lapland, who refuse to wear colored and coloring glasses upon their eyes, so the wretched infidel gazes himself blind at the monumental white shroud that wraps all the prospect around him. And of all these things the Albino whale was the symbol. Wonder ye then at the fiery hunt?

Hawthorne, or at least it appears Melville wanted to from all the literary praise and outright stalking he did concerning Hawthorne.

128 "I stuck my neck out a mile to try to get an agreement with the president of the United States," -- The Weeping Boner


What can you say about an idiot who "stuck my neck out a mile to try to get an agreement with" a guy who's last major "negotiation" involved wanting to "keep my boot on the neck" of the oil company that Barky would later shake down in the Oval Office for a cool $20 billion - to the applause of millions ...

What a fucking idiot.  I mean, seriously.

159 Yes, we're so enlightened we've elected a partisan dimwit for President and he got a majority of the white vote.

Some folks'll do anything to keep from being called racist.

Why? Being a racist or bigot isn't so bad. It's only when you take actions that those attitudes are unlawful.

Being f**king idiots and electing a crypto-muslim, communist/socialist race hustler to the highest most powerful office in the world; THAT'S BAD.

167 The white comment:

Posted by: cackfinger at July 30, 2011 07:32 AM (a9mQu)

168 White isn't actually at the extreme end of the visual spectrum, at least the electromagnetic spectrum we refer to as visible light. "White" does not rest on that spectrum, it is not a frequency or band of light. It's a combination of multiple frequencies that, alone, would produce individual colors but, together, produce a general incandescence we know as "white" light. The light produced by our Sun is almost exactly "white," but it can appear yellow or reddish because our atmosphere scatters blue and violet light more than yellow, and the red is largely the same effect from particulates and water vapor in the air. It appears most white at noon on a clear day, as the light passes through less air to get to your eyes. The stars Procyon and Alpha Centauri A, like our sun, are very nearly white, while Antares and Gacrux are quite yellow. Acrus, Bellatrix, Elnath and Shaula are all quite blue in color. While it is not literally true, it is a useful generalization to say that all frequencies of light combined equals "white." The general rule, also not quite accurate but useful, is that the reverse is true of pigments.
