Jack the lad is staggering home after a few pints in the local pub, and he is drunk. He staggers onto the road wearing black trousers, a black shirt, black jacket, black socks and black shoes. The street has no streetlights. A car with no headlights speeds down the road but manages to swerve and miss him.

How is this possible?


It was daytime!
