Flying colours

This is my latest appearance today after a long time absent from this blog. I'd like to write about metamorphosis.
According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal's form or structure through cell growth and differentiation.

Biology question:
What is metamorphosis?

When an animal changes form, like when a tadpole changes into a frog, or a caterpillar into a butterfly.

A dragonfly in its final moult, undergoing metamorphosisrom its nymph form.

I don't know why I choose this subject to write today. However,Hi again to my beloved readers.

Tu sais je t'aime.

What or who is colorist

What they do ?

In comics, a colorist is responsible for adding color to black
and white line art. Originally, this was done by cutting out
films of various densities in the appropriate shapes to be
used in producing color-separated printing plates. More
recently, colorists have worked in transparent media such as
watercolors or airbrush, which is then photographed,
allowing more subtle and painterly effects.

In fashion, a colorist is hairstylist that specializes
in coloring hair.

Wheels of Colors

Who needs colors ?

A color scheme, webmasters need this.

A color wheel, showing tertiary colors

What is flying colors?

Wait for my next post, Insya Allah (God willing).

Don't color parts of your body- - without reasons.

Which part of the body that you colored it?


Finger nails?


Actually you need not color any part of your body. Let's say that if you're born in
the South East Asian or Middle East region, usually your hair would be black.But if
you're born in Europe or America, you either have black, red, blonde or other colors
of hair. It's what Allah bestow upon us. Unless, if there is something which is very
important, such as, let say someone force you to color your hair red. If you don't color
you hair red, he will kill you. But that sound funny, isn't it ?

But that's my opinion.

Is crime colour blind ?

In the Sun (Malaysia) tabloid today

IGP: Police must remain colour blind when handling crime.


Color blindness, or color vision deficiency, in humans is the inability
to perceive differences between some or all colors that other
people can distinguish. It is most often of genetic nature,
but may also occur because of eye, nerve, or brain damage .....

But what the IGP means is...

Police cannot be moved by ethnic or any other bias, and have to remain neutral in enforcing law and order.

Plasma Fractals


Plasma fractals are perhaps the most useful fractals there are. Unlike most other fractals, they have a random element in them, which gives them Brownian self-similarity. To create a plasma fractal on a rectangular piece of plane, you do the following:

1. Randomly pick values for the corners of the rectangle.
2. Calculate the value for the center of the rectangle by taking the average of the corners and adding a random number multiplied by a preset roughness parameter.
3. Calculate the midpoints of the rectangles� sides by taking averages of the two nearest corners and adding a random number multiplied by the roughness parameter.
4. You now have four smaller rectangles. Do steps 2-4 for each of them.

Here is the basic algorithm of drawing plasmas:

Constants used:

number_of_colors: number of colors available in the computer language you�re using
size: size of the fractal; must be a power of 2
roughness: higher values make the fractal more fragmented

� randomly choose the rectangle�s corners
array(0, 0) = RND * number_of_colors
array(size, 0) = RND * number_of_colors
array(0, size) = RND * number_of_colors
array(size, size) = RND * number_of_colors
� go through the array, decreasing the interval size every time
FOR p = LOG(size) / LOG(2) TO 0 STEP -1
FOR x = 0 TO size STEP 2 ^ p
FOR y = 0 TO size STEP 2 ^ p
IF x MOD 2 ^ (p + 1) = 0 AND y MOD 2 ^ (p + 1) = 0 GOTO nxt
IF x MOD 2 ^ (p + 1) = 0 THEN
average = (array(x, y + 2 ^ p) + array(x, y - 2 ^ p)) / 2
color = average + roughness * (RND - .5)
array(x, y) = color: GOTO nxt
IF y MOD 2 ^ (p + 1) = 0 THEN
average = (array(x + 2 ^ p, y) + array(x - 2 ^ p, y)) / 2
color = average + roughness * (RND - .5)
array(x, y) = color: GOTO nxt
IF x MOD 2 ^ (p + 1) > 0 AND y MOD 2 ^ (p + 1) > 0 THEN
v1 = array(x + 2 ^ p, y + 2 ^ p)
v2 = array(x + 2 ^ p, x - 2 ^ p)
v3 = array(x - 2 ^ p, x + 2 ^ p)
v4 = array(x - 2 ^ p, y - 2 ^ p)
average = (v1 + v2 + v3 + v4) / 4
color = average + roughness * (RND - .5)
array(x, y) = color: GOTO nxt
� go through the array, plotting the points
FOR x = 0 TO size
FOR y = 0 TO size
PSET (x, y), array(x, y)

I don't know what it is. But, I think it's about colors. You can go to this blog

Black and white dots

Are you really sensitive to colors around you? Are you really sensitive like the thermometer?
Or you are just like the clock, never sensitive to changes around you.

Ok. Let's test your snsitiveness to colors.

Try to count how many BLACK dots are there in the picture below.

All the best !

If you get the answer --- how many BLACK dots are there---Please,please,please leave it in the Comment

Thank you

Colors and songs

We always hear beautiful songs. Songs are as beautiful as colors. Just take a look at the titles of songs below:-

Magic Woman - Santana
Yellow River - The Beatles
Green, Green Grass Of Home - Elvis Presley

on and on.

Just look at the lyrics below:-

Love Is Blue

-Artist: Andy Williams
-Instrumental version by Paul Mauriat was the # 12 song of the 1960-1969 rock
era and was # 1 for 5 weeks in 1968.
-Vocals that same year were charted by All Martino (# 57) and Andy's wife,
-Claudine Longet (# 71).
--Music by Andre Popp. Lyrics by Pierre Cour. (French) Brian Blackburn (English)

Blue, blue, my world is blue
Blue is my world now I'm without you
Gray, gray, my life is gray
Cold is my heart since you went away

Red, red, my eyes are red
Crying for you alone in my bed
Green, green, my jealous heart
I doubted you and now we're apart

When we met how the bright sun shone
Then love died, now the rainbow is gone

Black, black, the nights I've known
Longing for you so lost and alone

Transcribed by Ronald E. Hontz

Roses Are Red (My Love)
Bobby Vinton

Roses are red, my love ... doo doo da doooo ...

A long, long time ago
On graduation day
You handed me your book
I signed this way:

"Roses are red, my love.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love.
But not as sweet as you."

Talking about red roses, I would like to share what's describe below:

An image taken by the Hubble telescope of the "Cat's Eye Nebula",
an exploding star 3,000 light years away, the image was published
by NASA on Oct. 31 1999. original image at

About 1400 years ago,
Allah Almighty said: "And when the heaven splitteth asunder and becometh
ROSY LIKE RED HIDE - (The Noble Quran, 55:37)"

Have a nice day!

Colors of Vegetables


Why eat vegetables?

Because the health expert says it contains fibres.

Then there are vegetarians.

Who are these people?

Are they aliens? Nope!

There are several categories of vegetarians, all of whom avoid meat and/or animal products.
The vegan or total vegetarian diet includes only foods from plants: fruits,
vegetables, legumes (dried beans and peas), grains, seeds, and nuts.
The lactovegetarian diet includes plant foods plus cheese and other
dairy products. The ovo-lactovegetarian
(or lacto-ovovege-tarian) diet also includes eggs.

So let's look at their types of food and observe their COLORS.





Can colors increase your appetite ?

Yes HUNGRY can increase your appetite.
