In Mexico there are (and I realize there are many similar as in english culture) similar terms or concepts.

The trouble with idioms is that they are often changing and one must keep update.

Last July, I drove to Yellow Stone National Park in the States. On the rode, there was a big truck in front of me and it moves really slow. So I took a look at the far front and did not see any upcoming cars. So I sped up and tried to pass that truck. The moment when I changed my lane, an upcoming SUV showed up. I step on my gas pedal unreasonably hard and got back on the original lane. I was almost hit by the truck and the upcoming SUV. This white-knuckle ride turned my face as white as a sheet. Although I know it is white and black to speed and pass, I still made the mistake.

Years ago I and some friends were on Holiday in the Spanish coast. One evening we meet at the hotel 2 sympathetic Spanish guys with their girlfriends, also on holiday. After a pleasant conversation and several drinks it turned out that they were police officers in their annual vacation. Later on, one of those Spanish fellows proposed to continue our evening in a nearby village in the mountain (about 30 km from the coast) there, as he knew, a good party was going on. They would drive us in their respective cars. First when we were in our way I realized my mistake. It was a dark night and the road showed to be extremely narrow and went along a precipice. The cars were overloaded with our singing friends. Not enough with that our half drunken drivers started a race to see who of them should come first (or living)to the village. That evening I got a white-knuckle ride.

Hello Teacher, glad to see you again!On the highest floor of an enormous department store, I found out I had not my wallet and I became as white as a sheet when I realised that I had left it on my car roof in the basement. Lost among these people overcrowded the whole floor I tried as quick as possible to find a way to the issues. As all lifts were full or unavailable I took these incredibly slow escalators. Rushing down through the store from the top to the basement I skidded down 5 or 6 narrows moving stairways, trying to remember the basement number. After a time which could be in the Guinness book of records for such a performance in a Christmas shopping affluence I found my car and the wallet too. It was a white-knuckle ride.

In Latvia, if something is not only bad or only good, we use almost the same idiom. We say - It's not only black or only white. For example, the democracy or authoritarian regime is not only black or only white. Almost everything has their good and bad sides, especially if you speak about bigger processes.

It's black and white that judging students only by score is inappropriate. But in China, never try to get bad points in university entrance exam. For that would make parents and teachers as white as a sheet. Until now, I can still remember the white-knuckle ride when I call to check my scores.

I found her standing there before almost 50meters but regarded her walking to finish crossing there without stopping.But she continued to stand in the middle of crossing with fear.Her mind might change to one as white as a sheet. I could barely stop my car several meters without running over as could put on brake strongly. At dangerous judgment that she walked acoss there, if I contiue to run my car, I would have killed her by running over.
