Small, ultra-pedantic point: technically, black and white are not colors. Black is the absence of all color, white is the presence of all color. This is because we see colors only as the the light bouncing off them and hitting our retinas.

But you can still love black best. And your #17 got me all hot and bothered. In the good way!
