It may not be Kim Kardashian’s butt or a couple of runaway llamas, but a single dress seemingly broken the Internet Thursday night.

The image above was originally uploaded on February 15 to Tumblr with the following caption:

Guys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the f**k out.

Simple enough question right? It’s obviously blue and gold. Mystery solved.

But wait, when you turn the photo sideways it’s actually more blue and black. The more you really think about it, maybe it’s white and gold after all.

Then your mind explodes, and the evil dress has won.

One commenter thought we needed to elevate this to a higher authority.

SPREAD THIS UNTIL IT REACHES NASA WE MUST FIND ANSWERS

The dress was trending on Twitter and Facebook by Friday morning, with people of both camps (#whiteandgold and #blackandblue) arguing their case.

Buzzfeed eventually contacted the original uploader, a woman named Caitlin McNeill. She confirmed that it was in fact the blue and black dress seen below.

It’s called the Royal-Blue Lace Detail Bodycon Dress and sells for $77.

Although the more interesting question is, why do we all see different colors?

Wired has a good explanation of why this is happening.

Human beings evolved to see in daylight, but daylight changes color. That chromatic axis varies from the pinkish red of dawn, up through the blue-white of noontime, and then back down to reddish twilight. “What’s happening here is your visual system is looking at this thing, and you’re trying to discount the chromatic bias of the daylight axis,” says Bevil Conway, a neuroscientist who studies color and vision at Wellesley College. “So people either discount the blue side, in which case they end up seeing white and gold, or discount the gold side, in which case they end up with blue and black.”

Tumblr Thread: Aggressive Generosity Combats Boomer Selfishness

It's quick little tales like this that manage to temporarily restore our faith in humanity. This dude did not have to intervene when the Karen in front of them was making the Dairy Queen employee's shift all the more unpleasant, but they did. Oh yes, they did, and they did so when it came at zero benefit to them. That's the selfless kindness that the world needs. Plus, picturing Karen's face when she continued to witness someone else actively offsetting her toxic antics.

Tumblr Thread: Barista Is Living Definition Of Chaotic Good

Some people just seem impossibly happy. It's like no matter how many curveballs the world tosses their way, their positive never falters. Take this barista for instance: clearly the barista is at complete peace with where they've found themselves in lives, and thus proceeded to have some fun with their job, and definitely not waste time taking it too seriously. Those drink nicknames are gold.

Funny Memes That Live At The Intersection Of Law And Crime

You don't need to be a lawyer or a "criminal" to enjoy this assortment of memes. Their relation to the legal system is loose at best - instead of dealing with real, heavy issues, this gallery focuses more on amusing (and fabricated) courtroom interactions, foiled criminal acts, and general mockery of the law. Which we wholeheartedly support when tasty memes come out of it.
