More proof of how stupidity and dumbness is alive and very well in the world — and this time it’s all over a dress. Heaven help us all.
The whole craze spread throughout the USA and elsewhere in one day — ONE FREAKING DAY! The trouble is that the whole thing is a complete waste of time and one of those weird light tricks that is being passed off as hoax.
“The dress seems to be obviously blue and black to a person sitting at one computer, and then it appears to be gold and yellow to others at another computer or even the same computer.
“The color change, however, is not indicative of some brain differences or anything to do with personality or temperament as some have claimed. That is where this meme enters into hoax territory. It’s simple logic and knowledge about how computer screens work.
“Make no mistake, it’s a hoax, but only because it’s being presented to the public as some eerily strange phenomenon.”
In a nutshell, here is what Dr, Totondi explained, and why he sees this whole issue as a hoax-ish fad that will eventually die away.
Here is why it’s blue or black or gold and white, and why you should pay more attention to the color of your stool than to the color of this slutty dress.
1) A person who sees the dress as black and blue will email it to another person who sees it as gold and white. The difference in that case is that it is being viewed by two different screens — both having different resolutions and color saturation.
2) A person who sees the dress as black and blue (which are the actual colors) will call someone over and ask them what colors they see. Almost always the person who comes over stands over the person who is sitting at the computer. From that angle, the appearance of saturation changes and the semi-complimentary colors of yellow and white appear. It’s that simple.
Some enterprising — but mindless woman — put a pic on Tumblr or something and within a few hours, a billion people were arguing over the color of an ugly dress. The dimwit is happy because — according to Sky News – she “broke the internet.” Good for her.
For the next year, as a Grand Prize offered by the Opposite-Of-Mensa Society, she gets to officiate at ribbon-cutting ceremonies at all the new Piggly Wigglys opening throughout the world.
Additionally, she gets 1,000 new followers on Tumblr and 200 babies get free heart transplants.
Yes — the DUMBNESS CONTINUES!
