Because eeyore will have to tell us all again that all of the non-opaque
pyramids are transparent:
(Actually, before someone else called them translucent and eeyore explained,
I didn't know the difference...)

Technically (in case you were asking):

Opaque - can't see through it (wall)

Transparent - you can clearly make out shapes and stuff on the other
side (colored glass)

Translucent - light passes through, but is diffused so you can't "see"
through it (covers on ceiling lights)

So yeah, he's right.  What's a technical term for transparent and full
spectrum that's not clear?
