I'm a graphic designer and photography enthusiast. I'm typing this on a NEC PA242W color-calibrated monitor, in a near-dark room. That dress is white and gold. the white part has a blue tint but I wouldn't call it blue. The colors look the same on my iPhone 5S. When I bring the iPhone outside, the blue tinge is more apparent (a short of light sky-blue) and the gold/brown turn darker, somewhat into the black category.
The different isn't in the screens, it's in your eyes, caused by environmental light. A sunny day at noon can be 100x brighter than even a well-lit room with floor-to-ceiling windows. If it's sunny in your location right now, try this: find a view point where you can frame both the sky and a patch of dirt land (no grass or foliage). Put the camera in manual mode, pick a shutter speed, manual daylight white-balance (6500K) and a low ISO, start with a large aperture (like f/4) and gradually step it down (like f/22). The sky will appear more blue and the ground will appear darker.
That's exactly what our eyes do. In darker places, the pupils open up to accept more lights, the highlights (blueish-white) gets push up to white but mid-tones and shadows are preserved. In bright places, the opposite happen: lower mid-tones and shadows are pushed to near-black, highlights are pulled down to reveal the blue accent.
Prohibition 2.0 coming up next. Because the first one was a total success and Al Capone was simply a businessman delivering the goods people wanted.
And the War on Drugs is also a resounding accomplishment too!
I would distribute the pile into 10 stacks: page 1 - 100, 101 - 200, etc. Then grab each stack and divide it into 10-page stacks. Sort each mini-stack, then repeat. Recursive design, divide and conquer, blah blah blah...
My hand is a very slow CPU, and the table's surface, which is like memory, is severely limited. I have to make do with what I've got. Bonus: if there are other people to help me, they can each take a big stack and work independently of me. Parallel processing!
I wonder if the FBI would hire Jesus when he comes back. They are hiring no one but saints.
