"I want to perform an unnatural act."

"I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don't like anything in the mainstream and they don't like me."

- Bill Hicks

"I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.’” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant."

-George Carlin

"The more I see, the less I know for sure."

- John Lennon

[Re-blogged] A see-through background for comment section (100% text visibility)

To make your comments more readable you may have decided to put a uniform background under a comment section. But wouldn't it be awesome to make it a opaque, so they are more readable while your background image (presumably an awesome one that you want to show off) remains visible?




Bad news: we cant use an "opacity: 0.5" command. It affects all elements in a given section, so we'd end up with something like this:



And that is not cool. We wanted to make comments more visible! Not less.



Good news: there’s an easy and quick solution.


First we need to create a new class (I decided to call mine 'comments'):

.comments {background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);


With this way of doing it rgb colour values have to be used (red, green, blue – you declare how much of each colour you want. I decided to go with black, so I have three zeros. I’m smart like that).


Here’s a link to a page where you can get rgb colour values:





Last number stands for opacity of background colour  (0.5 -> 50%)



Go to settings -> blog -> customize -> edit html


Paste the code (before <*style> ):



Then find a piece of code responsible for comments. Type in things underlined with red (<*br> x3 creates a gap between a post and a comment section. If you don't want it, you can skip that particular part):



That's it. You're done! I told you it was easy ^^
