Silver is rare in the sense that it lives in a class of its own. Gold and White are rare also, but they're ugly.

Here's some Crayola trivia:

Crayola crayons currently come in 120 colors including 23 reds, 20 greens, 19 blues, 16 purples, 14 oranges, 11 browns, 8 yellows, 2 grays, 2 coppers, 2 blacks, 1 white, 1 gold and 1 silver.

Well, some of those characteristics that you posted are not "memes". A "meme" is a cultural element that is passed on by imitation, not by genetics. Eye and hair color, and probably shoe size are probably not considered to be "memes", unless for some socio-cultural reason you choose shoes that are too big/small or change the color of your hair/eyes.

So the actual questionaire is the meme, not the answers?
