Fascinating.

I had to zoom in on the image and use my fingers to view a narrow strip to convince myself the background image was actually black and white. Actually, just zooming in enough reveals it.

The brain must be filling in the colors it expects. Weird

I can't call "beef twister" my profession.  It is more of a calling.  A label for my daily ouvre.

Back when I was a student I had a part-time job in a supermarket at night as part of the team restocking the shelves. There were two teams, those opening the boxes, putting pricing labels on each item (before the era of bar code scanners) and filling the shelves. These people had the nickname "fillers". I was part of the crew who brought the boxes of stock on pallets from the storage using pallet jacks and placed the boxes in the aisles in the correct place for the fillers. We were called "pullers" as we pulled the jacks along.

My brother, a new accountant then, kindly did my first tax return for me and in the section Occupation, filled it out: "Part-time Puller".

If this doesn't meet your standard of cool then I apologize for wasting 21 seconds of your life.
