White and Gold Dress? Try This Trick!

image

I thought this dress drama was dumb (still do). Then it was fascinating. Then it freaked me out.

After examining this dress for an amount of time I’m embarrassed to disclose, I now see its true colors. Originally, all I could see was white and gold. I would have said that you had to get your eyes checked if you saw anything different. I thought the dress was actually blue and black but the picture’s colors had been changed for it to look white and gold. Who knows?

I tried to look at it in different angles. White and gold. Under different light. White and gold. Even tried to edit it to manipulate the colors. White and gold. Anyone who sees blue and black needs an eye exam, seriously.

Then, I tried something that would change the way I see this dress forever. Once you see it blue and black, you cannot unsee it! Try it for yourself.

Cover the picture with your hand. Slowly undress the picture starting from the left side until all you can see is the dress from the dark shadow line under her left shoulder. You should only see the darkest part of the dress on the left. Blur your eyes, squint if you have to and try to see blue and black. Once you do, slowly reveal the rest of the dress going right. You should see a blue and black dress now.

What the…? Playing tricks on you, huh? I can now see it both ways. If I stop looking at it and come back to it, I can see white and gold, but it’s hard to unsee blue and black once you have.

How to Avoid Annoying Your Friends on Facebook

image

Everyone has them! Those 4 or 5 friends (I’m being nice) who’s Facebook status you just skip over because you already know what it will say, or at least you can bet money on what it is and the odds are forever in your favor. Don’t get me wrong, most of us are guilty of many of these nuisances, but making virtual soup slurping a frequent occurrence is what makes people want to go “accidentally” knock the spoon out of your hand. I love slurping my soup by the way, but we’re not talking about me. Here’s a few tips on how to avoid annoying your friends (meaning me).

Dear Snickers

Dear Snickers,

You are my favorite candy bar. I love you to pieces. What makes you or any other snack worthy of return visits by any consumer is consistency. We want the same deliciousness in every bite and in every package, and we trust that when we sink our teeth into you, our taste buds remember why we came back to you. In my case, the perfect blend of nougat topped with caramel and peanuts, covered in smooth milk chocolate. My mouth waters just thinking about it. Read the rest of this entry »

Her Last Game Will Be Her First

I won’t pretend to know what it’s like to receive news about having terminal brain cancer, because it’s beyond imaginable for me.

In contrast to Brittany Maynard’s decision to end her life, Lauren Hill, who suffers from the same illness, chooses to fight, live life, and endure to the end. I find this story full of hope, extremely courageous, and very inspirational. She was given 2 years to live and then told she probably won’t last past December.

Wide Left Turns

Who in their right mind takes a wide left turn?!… in a sedan?! One of my big driving pet peeves, but it’s not talked about enough. Nor should it be, because it affects no one but me apparently. But I will NOT digress!
