    Default Move over Sam vs Dave, it's a white/gold vs blue/black world

    (Can a mod fix the title to put a backslash between blue and black?)

    This photo took over the world yesterday.

    What Colors Are This Dress?

    There’s a lot of debate on Tumblr about this right now, and we need to settle it. This is important because I think I’m going insane.



    So, is the dress white and gold or blue and black?

    I'm colorblind, but I see blue and gold.

    I saw the buzzfeed pic a few hours ago and swore up and down it was white and gold. I open this thread and see black and blue. So I go back to the same buzzfeed pic I looked at originally, and now I see black and blue.

    It is amazing that millions are debating the color of a dress. It's all over the place. Man, people do have time on their hands...

    Oh, and the way I see it, the dress is definitely blue +1

    I just printed out this picture and it looks blue and gold. My wife sees blue and black. I, for the life of me don't understand how anybody sees the gold as black.

    I see it as light blue and gold...until i block out the background, then I see blue and black

    however i have seen other versions where it looks white and gold

    I blame it on the fact that the original pic was take with a 1997 cell phone because the actual dress is a much darker blue/black

    I hear Bill Clinton sees it as a blue dress with a splash of white accent.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    The mystery has been solved, btw. The actual, real dress is blue and black. There's a bunch of scientific mumbo jumbo as to why our eyes our fooled, but suffice to say it's like one of those brain teasers where we think we're seeing something but the brain is being fooled.

    Either way, I have seen both. After originally seeing blue and gold, I later looked at the picture and saw white and gold. Then it turned blue again.

    As someone who is red-green colorblind, I will just say that if you see particular colors in this and it's inconceivable to you how someone can see something else, welcome to what it is like. When people see two different pictures, one doctored to show what I see, people cannot believe I can't see a difference between the two pictures.
