Trying To Lend Color To The Argument

(A customer comes to the counter with two sheets of black and white images she has printed from her computer.)
Customer: “Can you scan these and get someone to put all the pictures together so they go with the writing I have?”
Me: “Sure we can. Do you have these pages saved digitally?”
Customer: “What do you mean?”
Me: “Do you have them saved on a computer somewhere? Or on a USB drive?”
Customer: “Yeah, on my computer at home.”
Me: “Did you want to save them to a USB drive first and use the digital files? It would be a much better quality.”
Customer: “I don’t know what a USB drive is.”
Me: “It’s just a way of saving files so that you can transfer them to a different computer.”
Customer: “No. Just use my print out.”
Me: “Okay.”
Customer: “But can you scan them in colour?”
Me: “No.”
Customer: “Why not?”
Me: “Because those are black and white.”
Customer: “So?”
Me: “We can’t scan them in colour if there is no colour to scan.”
Customer: “But they were in colour on my computer. So there’s colour in them.”
Me: “Yes, there was colour on your computer, but you printed them in black and white. So when we scan the black and white print out, it’s going to be in black and white.”
Customer: “But I want them in colour! I don’t understand why you can’t just change your scanner to the colour setting.”
Me: “I could change it to the colour setting, but there is no colour on this page to scan. It’s all in greyscale, so it’s only going to scan it in greyscale.”
Customer: “Why?”
Me: “Because a scanner just scans what it sees. It can’t pick up something that isn’t there.”
Customer: “But you have colour scanners!”
Me: “Yes, that is used to scan colour pictures.”
Customer: “I don’t understand why you can’t just scan it in colour!”
Me: “Because it’s not a colour picture.”
Customer: “Yes, it is! It was in colour before I printed it!”

A reality show idea with gay men

gay reality show.jpeg

11 gay men and 1 straight man are locked in a house. The object for the gay men is to find out who isn’t gay. Once a week someone gets outvoted, until 2 are left, or the straight man is out. If the gays manage to outvote him, they win 1 million dollars. If the straight man is among the 2 last people in the house in the end, he wins 1 million dollars.
Now here’s the twist: None of the men are actually gay, they just all think they are the one straight man.
