Leonard Nimoy, known best for his portrayal of Spock in the original Star Trek series, died this morning at his home in Bel Air, Los Angeles. He was 83. His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, announced that his death came at the grip of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

I think it’s high time for a Star Trek rewatch. His memory amongst friends, family, and fans will undoubtedly live long and prosper.

What Color Is This Dress? (POLL)

Here’s a little something odd. Tumblr user Swiked has posted a picture of a dress that is black and blue to some and gold and white to others. What do you see?



Apparently some are claiming that it changes up on them after they look back at it. All I see is gold and white. For fun I did a color check. First I try the darker section on top, where its most lit.



Clearly a gold, bronzish color. But then I tried the dark strip in the middle.



Strangely, it looks charcoal now. Almost tricking the computer into assuming it’s black. Then I try the lighter area. And no matter where I check…



Blue. I’m so confused. Likely, the picture is very cold in the temperature range, making the image quite blue-tinted. But still. Weird.

(UPDATE) iO9 have explained the phenomenon scientifically. And they finally settle on what the true color is.
