It's even more complicated than that.

There are two ways you can mix colours, by addition or by subtraction:

- Paint works by subtracting out colours from white light. So when white sunlight hits your red house, the paint absorbs all (actually most) of the colours except for red. If you mix red paint, green paint and blue paint, the red will absorb most of everything except red, the blue will absorb most of everything except blue, and the green will absorb most of everything except green. The result is that the paint absorbs pretty much everything leaving you with a brownish mess.

- Lights shining on one another works by adding colours together. If I shine a red light and a blue light on something, then it is getting hit by both colours. The end result is a combination of the two. If you mix a red light, green light and blue light then it will appear white. The lights add together, they don't subtract.

- Finally, white can be a combination of all colours, but it doesn't have to be. Our eyes have three different colour receptors, and anything that causes all three of them to trigger will be perceived by us as white. It takes at least three colours to achieve this, and they must be sufficiently spaced across the visible spectrum, but that is all. Hence red + green + blue will appear to be white, but also orange + yellow + purple.

Given that, if three (or more) colored substances were mixed so thoroughly as to be completely homologous, wouldn't it be black (or perhaps grey) and not brown?

One of my favorite stories is about the wavelengths of light that chlorophyll absorbs and the resulting reasons you can't put green-filters in your greenhouse.

Does race have something to do with who broke the window?

The fact pattern simply states a Black guy, with a rock in his hand, and a White guy without a rock.

Theoretically, yes. In reality red paint absorbs most of the blue light and reflects most of the red, and blue paint absorbs most of the red light and reflects most of the blue. The left-over stuff adds up to give a brownish colour.

Who broke the window?

Who does the police officer arrest?


This fact pattern was an actual event, and was used in the Marines for training in human relations.
Think about it, and post your answers or thoughts below.
It is an interesting exercise........
I did not read the thread at the time of my post...

The white guy. He already threw his rock. Arrest the black guy as well as an accomplice.... ADDENDA: IF arresting is the only option available that is.

The scenario is impossible, since the police officer can't possibly finish his donut fast enough to get there in time to actually catch any guilty party.

After the event is reported in mainstream media, an internet forum is full of discussions about which racial group is 39 times more likely to throw rocks at other groups rather than at windows.

Meanwhile, the window manufacturer tries to stay quiet about the flaw in the latest batch of window panes, causing them to crack in cold weather.

I forgot to add:
1) The Police Officer was Black
2) It was a 'Black' neighborhood. The Black guy had a gun in is pocket. Had violent felonies. And was a neighborhood watch captain. Had called 911 about a White guy walking in the neighborhood.
3) The White guy was suspended from school
4) The White guy had been caught at school with an empty bag of dope and a screw driver in his backpack.

Was the Screwdriver in his backpack shaken or stirred? Which brand of vodka did he use?

You know, if we are to solve this mystery, we need all the info!
