But here is anew senseless question:Why senseless?
Why can Persian rugs only be sold at liquidation? Is it a con?
Persian rugs were once genuinely expensive because of trade embargos against Iranian (= Persian) goods. That is no longer true, so rugs are now cheaper to import, but dealers still try to sell them at inflated prices that no-one can afford. At liquidation, or other gimmick sales, the price is simply brought back to reality.For senseless, try this:
Where does all the white go when the snow melts?
I understand what a liquidation is, but all I am saying is that they claim to be selling at a liquidated price, which simply isn't true. Every week you see the companies advertising because "They are going into liquidation" There is one here in Perth that seems to be liquidating every week for the last ten years.
Steve Vizard even ran a series of skits showing the "poor" Iranian or Indian dealers trying to sell their rugs because "their poor mother is dying and they must sell everything at cost price to be with her" or "Their brother has run over a land mine and needs a new car" etc. He was very funny in those days.
As to where the white goes when snow melts?
The white colour is caused by a reflection of the sun through tiny prisms contained in ice crystals.
When you look at it your eye tells the brain that there are millions of colours but cannot distinguish each individual colour, so the brain defaults to white.
You can achieve the same reaction if you look at a multicoloured chocolate wheel. When it is still you see each colour clearly. But when it spins you see it as a white circle even if there is no actual white on the wheel.
If you can be "delighted" meaning you are happy, why can't you say you're "Lighted" when you are sad?
