It seems that the debate about the chicken and the egg can safely retire. He was replaced by another, in the literal sense of the word who split the network into pieces, the controversial question: what color dress in the photo – white or blue.
In social networks, in newspapers, in the news. Everywhere.
Vgorode decided to gather information about this dress.
How it all began
February 25 under the user’s nickname Swiked Tumblr blog published photos of the dresses with the question, what color: white with gold or blue and black. According to the girl, she argued about it with their friends. Probably this girl for this post cursed not less than one million times.
That’s the nightmare of uncertainty.
Says that the mistress
Portal BuzzFeed contacted the author of the original post, Caitlin McNeil, and she told me that in fact the blue dress. It was intended to be the mother of the bride at a wedding where Caitlin sang with his folk band. Disputes about the color of the dress in the picture began about a week before the celebration, but at the wedding doubts about this completely resolved.
Caitlin sent only one photo, and not the best quality that is questionable.
Supposedly from a wedding photo in this dress. Then blue.
And then – millions of Controversy, commentary, “How zadolbalo this dress,” all sorts of memes and other goodness. In this dispute got involved even celebrities such as Taylor Swift, David Duchovny and Kim Kardashian. Swift says that the dress is black and blue, Kardashian says that white and gold, and spirituality in general saw a blue-green color.
So far, all arguing representative of the British brand Roman Originals, the online store which was presented similar dress, said that the entire stock from the warehouse was sold within an hour. Company to think seriously about how to release the dress in white and golden version. Perhaps we are dealing with a very cool advertising campaign of all time.
Quite by chance, yeah.
Why do people see the dress in different colors
Since then, as the world was divided into white and golden and blue-black, all trying to prove their case. In this case, better to turn to the scientific side.
For example, a scientist from Washington, Jay Neyts believes that all matter in the lens of the eyeball. It changes over time and affect the perception of colors. With age or fatigue resulting from sensitivity to blue drops. Some see a white and gold dress, the other – black and blue.
The ophthalmologist portal Mashable explained that white dress with gold stripes in this light. Human color perception depends on his individual view. Brain processes light waves of different lengths that fall on the retina, and color detection of light associated with the universal emotional reaction, so some people are able to see the white and gold colors even in the shade, while others see only blue and black.
The point is illuminated. And not only.
Memes, memes, finally
