Literally not what a job is.

It’s a voluntary position where the responsibilities are optional, but it’s still a job.

I don’t think you can be “raped” at an orgy, considering participating in an orgy is already giving all of the people involved consent.

Consent can be withdrawn.

Topic: Off-topic / What colour is this dress?

Some people have been hinting at this in vague terms, but I did some research and thought I’d give a longer explanation: whether you see the infamous dress as blue and black or gold and white comes down to two factors: 1. Your ability to see contrast, and 2. The conversation happening between your eyes and your brain. The short version: it’s called the Purkinje effect, and it’s related to how we interpret images in low-light situations.

The fact is, the dress is actually blue and black. The original poster has made that clear. But why, then, does it look gold and white (or, for some, flip back and forth) in the photograph?

  • From the wiki:
  • The Purkinje effect is the tendency for the peak luminance sensitivity of the human eye to shift toward the blue end of the color spectrum at low illumination levels.

    So even though the picture you see of the dress is being beamed at you through your glorified lightbulb of choice, because of the unique (read: crappy) way the camera captured the image, your brain interprets the picture as being a low-light situation. The blue then gets interpreted as white, like what happens to the center of the flower in this picture. BUT… that’s not all. Because your blue-channel vision is inhibited, the blues that would otherwise go into the lace trim (and make it black, by combining blue-red-green light) are no longer perceived… leaving red-green, which combines to appear yellow (or, you know, gold).

    Of course, your brain doesn't need a whole lot of help interpreting the black trim as gold, since the “black” in the picture is, when objectively color-sampled, more like a muddy brown). Taken in isolation, the dress as represented by the photograph is more like a combination of purplish fabric with dark brown trim, but each camp, both blue/black and white/gold, is correcting for how their brain perceives that the camera is misrepresenting reality. It’s just that the folks who see blue and black are doing this with slightly more visual acuity than the white/gold folks.

    Obviously, this answers a few questions, such as:

    WHY DO I SWITCH BACK AND FORTH?: Because your brain is confused!

    WHY DOES IT CHANGE WHEN I TILT MY SCREEN/LOOK AT IT ON A DIFFERENT SCREEN?: Because the tilting of your screen alters the way the colors are displayed, and, rather than changing the look of the colors themselves to either blue/black or white/gold, this allows your brain to interpret the image more/less effectively (hence why those of us who see blue/black cannot see white/gold when the screen is tilted - for us, the image just starts to look hyper-bright in some places).

    WHY DOES MY DAD/DAUGHTER/BEST FRIEND SEE IT THE SAME/DIFFERENTLY?: Because we have different configurations of rods and cones in our eyeballs and different levels of effectiveness in how our eyes talk to our brains! This isn’t related to your ability to focus (you might have perfectly okay vision), nor your ability to interpret color on a general level (in adequate light, your ability to differentiate hues may not a problem) - it’s related to how effectively you can see at night in low light, i.e., how effectively you can discern contrast.

    The contrast issue is why these ridiculous glasses are available for sale (and why actual doctors prescribe yellow-tinted lenses for people with contrast issues) - if you see the dress as white/gold and put a pair of these on, you’d probably see the dress as blue/black because of the way our eyes process color and contrast.

    that dress is not black and blue nor it is white and gold

    it is hot and it’s cold, it’s yes and it’s no, it’s in and it’s out, it’s wrong when it’s it right, it’s black and it’s white, you fight and break up, we kiss and make up
