On Advertising, II

Sometimes I like to look at the women in clothing ads on websites as the ad cycles through multiple colors but the woman stays in place.

What most people think is sad is that I'm using this as an excuse to look at semi-clothed women.

What I think is really sad is that I am entirely serious. I'm starring at boob pixels for upwards of twenty minutes trying to figure out what color was the bra that was originally photographed.

Usually, it's the grayish/tannish color. Blue, magenta, black and white can all be easily photoshopped simpy by Adjustments>Colors. That's why the resolution dips and the stitching fuzzes.

What is absolutely saddest is that I have so much time on my hands that I learned this, even more now that I don't have anything more to figure out.

I am sure this is how Stephen Hawking gets most of his work done.
