  • WTF does your iPad have to do with this post?


    I thought the same thing, and then I thought maybe she was trying to say she is typing this right now on her iPad as if to let us know she just witnessed the people in black now in the heat of the day.  I'm still not clear on why that is relevant, but maybe that's what she intended.

  • You're not supposed to wear black during the summer. It's a winter color.

  • Black doesn't attract the sun more than other colors it absorbs light rays and light doesn't bounce off it as much as other colors but in order to make a real noticeable difference I think you would have to wear much more of the color than normal clothes allow for.

  • I wear black in the summer. I like black! The color does absorb more light/heat but i don't care. When it get hot enough,what color you're wearing isn't going to matter much
