    This debate has gone viral
    What color is the dress?
    Is it white? Is it blue? What is it?

    I said white, son 7, says blue. He thinks I'm crazy for asking him and saying white.
    We looked in the same light.

    I wonder how this even became a thing.

    I saw white and gold as did my SO then read the article and looked again and it then looked blue to me but she still says white!
    It is a compensation trick of light because the background is very bright our past experience tell our brain to interpret light blue as white because we know that brilliant white looks blue by contrast in shadow situations.
    Young kids minds are not yet wired that way so see things without compensating which apparently in this case was the correct colour.

    Please make this go away and die forever... I was hoping it would never reach SF... The Dress doesn't matter... (I'm an Internet Person and I'm saying that - so you know it's beyond meaningless.)

    Now here's some Science! about "The Dress."

    When I tilt my laptop screen so that I see it from above, the dress is white and beige. When I tilt the screen so that I see it from below, the dress is blue and brown.

    But now it gets complicated: After I typed those two sentences, I scrolled up and checked the dress again. It was much more blue! The color changed from white to blue after I spent a few moments typing on this white field. Staring at white and then looking at the dress a second time made the dress look more blue than it did the first time.

    Sorry, 10_3, it's dark gray. The background in that picture is red, but the dress is dark gray.

    Let's stop the madness about that stupid photograph! Let's argue about the color of the dress in 10_3's picture instead!

    :p

    The one good thing about this whole viral argument is that no one will ever wear this dress in public. Ever.
