Is This Stupid Dress White and Gold or Blue and Black?

So someone posted a photo of this stupid dress yesterday asking if it was white and gold or blue and black. It damn near broke the Internet and turned the whole world against each other. I see white and gold. When I said that to one of my other editors, he asked me if I was insane and that it’s definitely blue and black. What the hell is going on here?

Apparently it’s a trick that your eyes are playing on you based on the poor lighting used in that particular photograph. Different people’s brains interpret the light coming into their eyes differently. Even after intense scientific research (yes, people started asking scientists to look into this), a conclusion couldn’t be reached. Mainly because it’s very clearly white and gold, according to me. And I’m right about everything.

One thing is for sure: it’s turning the people of the Internet against each other. Facebook and Twitter exploded with intense arguments. And you know it’s an important issue when celebrities are getting involved. Taylor Swift thinks it blue and black. Kat Dennings thinks it’s white and gold. (I think Kat Dennings and I are right and the rest of the world is wrong and needs to get their eyes fixed.)

Consensus among scientists and Photoshop experts alike now seems to be that the dress is blue and black. But we all know that it is really white and gold. Because that’s what my eyes see every damn time and no amount of research or explanation will ever change that.

So what do you see?
