1. The author of that book knows nothing about graphics bit depth

 

16 Shades of Gray
256 Shades of Gray
16,384 Shades of Gray
16.7 million shades of Gray

But not 50.

6. "When you get up, how do you decide which shade of black to wear?"

My favorite quote from the movie Shallow Grave.

15. As a child of the fifties, I believe it was my duty. However,

It is not lost on me that I screwed up. Memory and hearing are both starting to go!

8. It's actually kind of difficult to find exact gray (50% white, 50% black)

We painted our house gray a few years ago, and most of the samples had a green, or blue, or yellow cast to the gray (one was even pinkish).

I finally printed a block of 50-50% B/W on my black & white printer and had the paint store match it. Looks great with white trim, black shutters, and our red doors.
