#TheDress has literally broken the internet: Friendships are being ruined, wars are being waged, feuds are being had! If you live under a rock here’s a recap of what you’ve missed: 

The middle dress in the image above is the one that was originally posted on tumblr, and we can clearly see the dress is blue and black! THERE IS NO WHITE OR GOLD.

The internet freaked out. Kim Kardashian and Kanye even posted about it. The company that made the dress is thinking of making a gold and white dress because of this insanity. Here's a bit of science on why people think they’re seeing a white and gold dress (ie you need to get your eyes checked!). 

For further testing we are graciously providing you with an art history eye exam:
