How to use pitch-black in a sentence?

  1. Colin Wayne:

    Due to the force of the blast I suffered a concussion and I remember yelling for a medic but nobody was around me. It was pitch black, I couldnt see my hand in front of my face, my leg was throbbing in pain, I could barely breathe due to the massive amount of debris in the air. After a few minutes, two soldiers came in and got me, but those [four to five]minutes felt like hours. So coming back stateside, I have been told by family members that I was a lot more distant and that I had changed some.

  2. Pete Cunningham:

    If I want to buy a new house then I can go around and I can check to see whether there is damp patches around or whether the current owners have painted over and tried to hide any issues with leaks or damp patches, so that's another great example, also silly things like I'm going into the bakers and getting the freshest bread, you can point the phone up and identify where the freshest bread is. Or I let my dog out in the evening and it's pitch black, so now I can find my dog without having to chase around and rummage in bushes.

    It was pitch black and before I knew it, I was in midair falling off a cliff. I was honestly thinking I wouldn’t survive, i hit my head a few times and landed with a big bump.
