I blame the quietness around here on the adtards. The "rerun mode" everyone seems to be on by resurrecting 2014 commercials leaves us with fewer new things to chime in about.

Ermm

They said on the news that it had something to do with the exposure of the pic different people were looking at, but that makes no sense because it's the same digital pic.

Probably the different screen settings of different computers/tablets/phones.


It looks like it's somewhat reflective, too.

I remember iridescent clothes in the mid-60s.  From one angle, it'd be maroon.  From another angle, it'd be green or something.  Then there were those flip-flop paintjobs that people were having done to their cars not too long ago.  I saw one that was actually kinda freaky.

Whatever...the dress is kind of ugly.

Looks sort of like that, but on the news, they showed a pic of a model wearing the dress.

Kinda related:

Ever notice how your eyes have a hard time processing these two colors at the same time?  They kinda flicker back and forth for me.

Weird thing is even though they're all red and blue the far left one looks orangish!

Yep, usually we need a certain old married couple to get into a political argument to get anything to 3 pages in that amount of time.

I agree with Thor. I clicked on this thread to post virtually what Thor said. This thread is not dead. It has already gotten replies that are in the 70s, despite having started just yesterday. That is a huge ass success.
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

So the wife listens to this radio station called 105.5 wjyy that plays a mix of music. Rock, rap, pop, etc. Always seems to have more rap\ hip hop on though. I always tease her about it because I hate rap and hip hop. So I  got  to thinking of what sounds I could hear and have it be less painful to listen to. I finally came to the startling revelation that I would rather listen to the sounds of my bones slowly being broken. At least then there would actually be an instrument being played, even if it is me...

Improvement, no?
