On "The Stupid Dress" and Other Optical Illusions

Is it white/gold or blue/black? WHO CARES! Check out these other awesome optical illusions and then make your own dress.

There is a lot of conflict going on in the world these days, but none of it is as divisive as....THE DRESS!!!  

Which side are you on?  Is it white and gold?  Or blue and black?  Can you even believe that people can see it differently than you can?  Did it change colors before your eyes making you doubt everything you believe (like it did to me)?

THIS DRESS IS EVERYTHING!  At least it is everything, according to the Internet yesterday.  But let me tell you, there are better less frustrating optical illusions out there!  Like this spiral.

Would you believe me if I told you that the "green" and the "blue" color in it are EXACTLY THE SAME COLOR??  I thought not!  Don't believe me?  Then check it out here and see that I am not lying to you!

If you are interested in optical illusions we have lots and lots of books just full of them.  Why not give one a try?

      

Or if you, like some of my Facebook friends, care more about how ugly the dress is than what color it is, make a prettier one!  I dare you!  

     

So, go on, now.

P.S. The dress is clearly white and gold.  Except when it isn't.  AAAAAAAARGH!!!

Sharon, I love it that you take an internet debate on a one-point issue, and turn it into a wonderful opportunity for recommending "further readings" to keep people engaged, reading, and at their library! Hooray for librarians who know how to relevant and opportunistic in the best ways!
