Prussian Blue, Russian Blue, Prussian Blue

In a continuing effort to help readers distinguish confusing terms:

Prussian Blue, "the first of the modern pigments".

Russian Blue, the breed of beautiful double-coated cat.

Prussian Blue, the neonazi pop duo.

Thanks, you bring a smile to my lips. Here is a nice discussion of Zyklon B residues and Prussian Blue pigment. Note "cyan'ide is the active ingredient in Zyklon B.

"Gerf" as in "Get off my face, I'm awake now and will feed you"? It's such a characterful cat, looking out the window and considering perhaps the success of its new gengineered FeLV cure and those for whom it was too late.

Was it Mel Brooks who said, "If you can't laugh about the Holocaust, what can you laugh about?"

Favorite historical color fact: Greek statues and temples were brightly painted.
