    As most of you people know, the internet has been on fire for the past day with this stupid dress. Some people see it as black/blue, some people see it as white/gold.

    Now, to keep a civilized discussion, I'm going to take some fun out of it.

    The actual dress is black/blue. The photo is horribly over exposed. Also, I've seen it both ways so neither is wrong.

    This thread will be used more as a comparison on how people see things, and I'm sure the devs will lock the thread if it goes wrong.

    It's gold and I don't care.

    Now it's blue and ugly.

    I was gonna make a thread but now im sick of the damn thing. The dress it self is blue/black, picture has been modified where it can appear different colors to some people. Just people abusing one of the basic science related terms with how you eye works.

    End of the damn discussion >.>

    And still hideous. I'd rather look at a gunshot wound.

    i've seen it as both

    it's just a picture that happened to be taken JUST RIGHT to make it appear different to other people though, just overexposure

    it's ugly as black and blue though, was far better looking gold and white (even though it isn't actually gold and white)

    It's funny how mad some people get over a photo of a dress.

    Saw it as black and blue this morning, seeing it as gold and white now. Suspected that the colour temp of my phone screen had something to do with it, but I get the same effect on my colour neutral reference monitor. Cool stuff.

    With how some of you are acting it would appear that this dress has personally insulted all of your mothers.

    I see it as white and gold but I'll probably end up seeing it properly sometime.

    I swear I can alternate between blue and gold then blue and black. I cannot know how people can possibly see white. That's a very, very definite shade of blue. It's neat how differing biology can alter people's perceptions that much.

    I was seeing it as gold and white.
    Then I saw the actual picture of the dress and it's pale blue and gold.

    I've looked at this on 2 different monitors and 2 different phones and it still looks white and gold no matter what. I understand the explanation but that actual picture of the dress and the one everyone's talking about don't even look remotely similar in color.

    It looks perfectly blue and black to me. Must be my IPS monitors.

    I'm viewing it on a better IPS monitor and it looks white/gold. It's not your monitors, it's your brain/eyes.
