There is a Russian science fiction novel, where in one scene a human,
speaking to an alien, says something along the lines of "it is hard to
be a little bit pregnant". The alien, however, is completely puzzled
by the sentence, because "little bit pregnant" is a common state for
the species of his race.
The moral here, I think, that in when something seems black-and-white
to you, other will certainly find many shades of gray ;-))
