I see blue and black but the black was a weird yellowish tinge to it, that's much more pronounced closer to the top and less pronounced where there's a shadow, so it just looks like a picture with weird lighting to me. I did see it as white and gold exactly once, but when I looked away and back again it was back to blue and black.

The answer is it is actually blue and black though, the person posted a second picture of the dress being worn pretty early in this whole thing where it just looked blue and black to everyone. Its just the lighting and surroundings in that one picture basically creating an optical illusion. (Minby was basically right there as I understand it, your perception of colours can actually be informed by the colours surrounding a thing, that's used pretty commonly for optical illusions. The variance is apparently just people's eye's reacting differently based on different levels of light sensitivity or something along those lines)

My favourite part of this whole silly affair was the stats roundup after it though, Buzzfeed apparently posted 31 articles about this dress in the course of its couple of days of relevance.

I honestly cannot understand how you guys can see blue and black. If I scroll down so you can only see the bottom of the dress it looks blue and gold, but on the full picture it's most definitely white and gold. What is going on in your brains.

Admittedly I thought it was some kind of practical joke at first, but I think it's legit simply due to how big it's got.

Here's the website where you can buy the exact dress that was in the picture if that helps at all (it does also come in a white and black, but I don't think anyone has been arguing for that colour combo)
And here's the other image of the thing actually being worn

Problem being a god is that you've got to get the balance right. If you do too little people start disbelieving in your/acting like complete dicks in your name, but if you do too much people stop thinking for themselves. I'd probably show up every 10 years, give people some commandants, slap them if they're not being good, then leave them to it.

Well, aside from bringing back the dinosaurs anyway.

Well, what kind of powers? Are we talking Thor, or an omnipotent being?

I'm going to assume Thor Level powers...

I'd probably not do to much different, I'd probably just try to find a way to use my powers to make money (Legally mind you) and live comfortably.

...Maybe I'd join the NFL? That sounds like it'd work ok...

Make all the suffering worth something in the afterlife and don't reveal myself at all. A divine intervention would just stop humanity from being human. If I were to take away every obstacle on mankind's path, how could it grow?

Fix a few problems here and there, and teleport around the world eating the best food and drinking the best alcohol. If you're going to be a god, might as well enjoy it.

End all wars..... With force. Become the moral compass of the world, take command for myself, guide humanity into the space age, etc, etc.... It'd be like Avalanchia but with more omnipotence, less corruption and equal harem shenanigans.

Also Pokemon would become a real thing. No legendaries though (at least not the most powerful ones). That is, until Pokemon get accepted as a thing humans are just going to have to live with. Once that happens, I'll use my godlike powers to puppeteer a bunch of people into a life-changing adventure to save the world from one legendary or another. Probably gonna do that every ten, twenty years or so for my own amusement.

I tend to wear mine for Halloween. Around the college campus. Because I can. People tend to call me Jack Sparrow even though I look nothing like him. At all.

Not something to discuss in polite company.

The sfw answer is probably skipping school to travel down to London, and then standing in a queue for 6 hours to get an autograph from Shigeru Miyamoto. Totally worth it.

Now that's an answer that only inspires more questions, Raya. Razz

As for myself, it's a tossup between Falcon-Punching a volleyball to meet Minby, being drawn to my girlfriend through the same obsessive love of an obscure JRPG, or the time I waited in line for skyward sword wearing what amounted to a suit because I was going to college interviews right afterward.

Not sure if I'm proud or embarrassed to be somewhat involved in two of TD's three answers, lol.
