The Dress

Is this dress white and gold or black and blue? That is the big question the internet has been talking about. This dress image was first posted on Tumblr by Caitlin McNeill, a 21-year-old aspiring singer from Scotland, and it quickly became an internet sensation, with even celebrities replying with their thoughts. Put simply, it's just an optical illusion. Some objects reflect light at certain wavelengths, or colors, and the human brain determines the color of an object by taking in its reflected light.

You Had One Job

Another day, another internet meme. This time, we take a look at "You Had One Job," an expression used to call attention to perceived blunders made by individuals on the job. The earliest known mention of this meme can be traced back to the 2001 remake of the heist film Ocean's 11, in which the character Basher Tarr (played by Don Cheadle) scolds his team for missing a step that singlehandedly leads to the failure of an otherwise well-planned vault heist. In the example above, someone forgot how to spell "STOP". Continue reading for more.

Kinfine's Arm Chair might seem like a good deal at first, especially at under $90 shipped, but before purchasing something like this online (or from an app), make sure you check the production dimensions, or else hilarity may ensue. Despite its actual size, there are some adults, like John Sheffield, who says: "Honestly, it's actually quite comfy. I use it when gaming mostly because it can be closer to the TV than my couch. I don't have plans on returning it. Besides, I'm lazy and it wasn't terribly expensive." Product page. Continue reading to see just how big this chair really is.

Volvo YCC

The Volvo YCC ("Your Concept Car") was a concept car presented in 2004 at the Geneva Motor Show with the stated goal of meeting the particular needs of female drivers. On the outside, it looks like a futuristic four seat coupe, but upon closer inspection, you'll see that there's no hood, as the engine was designed to need an oil change only after 50,000 km (31,000 mi) - radio messages are sent to a garage automatically a short time before any required maintenance. Filling the windshield washer tank was done by a cap-less ball valve, right next to the cap-less gas tank ball valve. The car featured run-flat tires, like those of wheeled armoured vehicles, in order to be able to drive all the way to a garage after a puncture and thus avoid having to change a tire by the side of the road.

Funny Vandalized Sign

Regardless of how hard it is to reach a sign, or how boring and plain one may look, there are always those bored people who just have to vandalize them for their own amusement. For example, a math geek decided to put a sticker on a speed limit sign that asks drivers to solve for "x". On the bright side, if you do get a speeding ticket for going over the 45mph limit, this piece of vandalism could be used to your advantage. Continue reading for more.
