    I don't seem to know ANY of the ones left - oh well. Good luck everyone!
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    Hee, hee, hee. I'm snickering at Ubu's latest post.

    Your montage is beautiful, Tang, and it has elicited an understanding for me for which I am forever grateful. I have long loved gray. I remember once telling a querying therapist that it was my favorite color and her looking somewhat horrified . My gray Trek bicycle, a gray sweatshirt, gray socks ... oh, so pleasing, so attracting. For the first time I believe I understand it is the absence of color, the reduction of stimuli that makes gray so peaceful--dare I say, spiritual for me.

    Gray is special--not to be found in an excitable rainbow; softer than white, less severe than black, infinite in its gradations.


    Thank you for tuning our attention on spectra, good woman!
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    All 90 bottles have been identified... this took approximately 36 hours and didn't leave room for the extra-credit guessing that the last few contests needed. You guys are pros!

    I hope to announce the winners by the end of the week. Thanks again to everyone for playing along and for the comments on the collage. I appreciate it!

    And Quarry -- there *is* something very serene about the full-size gray bottle background on my desktop. I have a new appreciation for gray.
