i recommend the black .72/silver .85 combo for reasons that can be
demonstrated both alphabetically and numerically:

the word 'black' is made up of 5 letters, whereas 'silver' comprises 6
letters. 7 minus 2 (from .72, get it?), makes 5, suggesting that the .72 m6
should be black. now, 8 plus 5 makes 13. subtract 7 (from .72, get it?) and
you have 6; evidently, the .85 m6 should be silver.

thanks to this brief yet elegant equation, you can select those m bodies
that will aid you in maintaining the state of alphabetico-numerical harmony
necessary for effective picture-making. for this reason, the above combo is
the sound choice.
