Day Nine: Ahhhh, the internet

I do love Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.  Social media allows us to enjoy the company of others from all over the world without actually having them in my house. There are those moments that bring us all together; and those that tear us apart.  Tonight is one of those nights. The saga of the blue and black or white and gold dress.

Do we have so little going on in the country that this has become a major debate?  I'm all for having a good laugh, but some people are taking this little internet question to the extreme.  It's a dress.  Is it really important what color it is?  Are you truly upset that you didn't see "the right one?" 

What have we learned?  You guys are proving what prosecutors and defense attorneys have been saying for years...your eyes can fool you.  You can have 10 people look at the same thing and each one will see something different based on your own bias, eyes, mind, etc.

So some of us saw a blue and black dress, and some of us saw a white and gold dress.  Does it truly matter?  For the record, I saw it both ways-blue and black on Twitter, and white and gold on Instagram.  Now, I'll go back to watching most evil and watching the debate continue on all the different social media outlets I follow.

Until next time, "There's beauty everywhere. There are amazing things happening everywhere, you just have to be able to open your eyes and witness it. Some days, that's harder than others."~Sarah McLachlan
