The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice, unless it's a strawberry.

"I want blacker font!"
"This is as black as it goes sir?"
"No it bloody well isn't! Have you tried inverting the level of color switches to neutral and then checked the box that says anti-existence?!"
  I had no idea what to say back to my boss....
He flubbered back into his attack of rage, "I'll take that ulcer-giving dumbstruck look on your face as a 'Nooooooooooo....,' it's extremely simple once you access the secret menu, Der!" He said that as though even a cheaply brewed hot chocolate knew how to access the menu. He continued, "All ya gahts to do is say the password," He began with a decent tiger roar and then projected, "sally sells sea shells by the sea shore erohs aes eht yb sllehs aes slles yllas!"

I sat in and absurd state of astonishment. I never knew a shade of black so black could exist.

I responded with a simple, yet perfectly timed, phrase, "Well, that destroys ALL of my preconceived notions of Windows 95 not having a voice recognition software."

What we gain from my humiliation.
It always only takes a few more clicks and a few more animal sounds to create a masterpiece. The difference between something good and something great is the matter of desire and a willingness to keep going until you have reached that greatness. At times it brings you to your knees, you're on the verge of the desertion of that perfectly imagined product. But, in that time of fragile motivation is when perfection finds itself. It would have been so easy to accept a 1995 default shade of the color black, but how could the world be changed with such mediocrity. Don't give up, don't ever give up until you have reached masterpiece.
