I was going to say perhaps the inventor was colored blind.

But then I saw this facto ...  looks like you can blame the British “... the name “black box” came from a British government official, who in 1958 referred to it using W.W.II-era Air Force slang for subtle avionics. By the mid-1960s, flight-data and cockpit voice recorders were mandatory for commercial airplanes.Apr 5, 2014”

:good:  Nice.

I’m laughing at
“why did Wile Coyote buy all that ACME crap and didn’t just buy dinner”

Well I don’t believe we have to wait for heaven to know that answer  B-)   In NJ ironically we did have a grocery store called ACME and it was the most pitiful grocery store on the planet.  The only edible items in that store were chips/pretzels/soda and “some” can goods.  Their meat was always past their due dates and cold cut deli meat was dried out with a special crusty edge forming.  Their ice cream was full of ice crystals and the “fresh” fruits and veggies were always bruised and on the borderline of being rotten.  Sadly I think the only reason they stayed opened as long as they did was because there was a Senior housing apartments across the street and they were the ones who kept the store thriving ...
