Nothing is EVER black or white. Not even the physical ones and zeros in
your computer are. That is why we have politics. To make compromises
which tells us what we should parse as a one or a zero.

1. (A t-shirt saying 2 + 2 = 5. For this joke to work you have to know
how to round numbers, and that 2 can be rounded from everything between
1,5 and 2,4, and that 4,8 rounds to 5. And it is still correct math.)
