    The absence of an intrinsic color to a mirror precisely why such practical applications can exist.
    Again you are arguing light, which I cannot disagree with you. I, however, am arguing from a material standpoint. If you take a polished stainless steel mirror and put a sander to it, what color does the sanded surface then become?

    The sanded surface is not a mirror. What color it becomes is irrelevant because the question is regarding a mirror, which cannot exist in the sanded surface.

    That's a practical reality. If I make a house, it is a house. If I destroy a house, it is no longer a house.

    The same is true with mirrors.

    Interesting twist. I, however, would argue that the mirror or house is still a mirror or house, albeit in a damaged condition.

    Take a glass mirror out of its frame, flip it over, and what color do you see?

    It would depend on what's on the back of the mirror. It isn't a mirror if it doesn't reflect so the back of the mirror is again, not part of the mirror itself.



    Let's ask this: Look at the following mirror:



    What colors are in the mirror?

    That's an impractical point of view. If the house is destroyed, it serves no house-like functions.

    Further more, if the house were painted blue, and then it was destroyed, what color would it be? Would it still be a blue house, even though it now is a multi-colored pile of rubble?

    Re: Do you object to gay couples adopting?

    This thread is kinda whack. It asks the question, "Do you object to gay couples adopting?" and you come in thinking, "Click No." But then the poll asks, "Would you allow gay people to adopt." Which, in my case, would be a "Yes." I almost clicked "no" by accident.

    Sexuality is very confusing.

    Dude, you got way too much time on your hands. You need to get your ass back in the tavern.
