The comment thread on this question is very, very chatty. I know that's allowed to a certain extent, but perhaps there's a limit?

I wonder, if a zebra is white with black stripes or black with white stripes? It won't make it different but is there any answer?

^ not a puzzle :/
@Stiv is the enumeration correct?

Nice
