Color-Changing Dress, Meet Dual Axis

From the Blue and Gold Dress to straight lines that look crooked without optical manipulation, there are countless ways to play tricks on the human eye. This "Dual Axis" illusion plays on our perception of movement. Created by Frank Force, the lines appear to move both horizontally and vertically, but the reality is that it is both. 

Depending on where you look at on the shape, and how you follow the movement, it can shift even as you watch it, a very "trippy" sensation. The Neural Correlate Society's Best Illusion of the Year Contest votes on the best illusions from all over the world, and the winner gets a trophy, along with a $3000 cash prize. 

this optical illusion was a finalist at the Best Illusion of the Year Contest 2019. This dual axis illusion tricks the eyes into seeing the lines rotating either horizontally or vertically depending on the point you are staring at

Did Logan Paul know what he was doing here with the moronic move of the week, or what? If so, this is one savage act of trolling. That or the idiot can't seem to take a win right now. Let's just say that vegans were NOT about the notoriously detested Vlogger joining their cause.

Entitled Influencer Asks For Free Hotel Stay, Gets Told Off By Hotel Owner

We know that Millennials aren't all entitled cheapskates (we are Millennials after all) but we have to say that people like British YouTuber Elle Darby make us look really bad. 

Darby requested via email a free five-night stay for her and her boyfriend at a hotel in Ireland. Instead of paying the hotel, she would give the business "exposure" - the hotel owner was certainly having none of that and replied to her with a snarky email, which he has since published online. He even went on to ban all social media influencers from his places of business.

Do you think the hotel owner's response was fair or did it go too far? Let us know in the comments!

Email exchange between an entitled social media influencer and a hotel owner | My partner and are planning come Dublin an early Valentines Day weekend Feb 8th 12th explore area.

YouTube Mistakenly Bans Robot Battles For "Animal Cruelty" Content

So in an endless attempt to filter the internet and make sure no one is triggered, sites that allow content uploading have their work cut out for them making everyone feels warm and fuzzy. Well apparently, YouTube's AI has taken issue with all the mistreatment of its fellow robotic brethren, and started to ban contributors videos featuring robot battles. Some users reported only a few videos going down, while others reported dozens if not hundreds of videos that were affected. 

Shows like BattleBots and Robot Wars found a lot of their content suddenly banned from the site, even if the users were able to return the videos through filing a claim. But users that lost numerous videos would need far too much time to retrieve all of their videos. Luckily though, YouTube figured out what had happened, and the videos have been returned to their rightful place. So in honor of these bots that nearly saw their fame quashed before its time, here are some of the Battle Bots best. You can also decide for yourself if this warrants a YouTube ban or not, or maybe check out your new favorite YouTube binge.

How does Trump bring the world to its knees in 140 characters? This YouTuber things he knows the answer.

President-elect Donald Trump, the reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency last year, can cause an international incident with only the power of his thumbs. Through Twitter, Trump delivers the unfiltered id that is our next four years, but what is he looking to accomplish by sending so many into a panic? There isn’t a whole lot of room for nuance or explanation in a Tweet, and those details are critical. Now, as his incoming press secretary said that he’ll be making major policy announcements via Twitter, it’s worth understanding how Trump tweets.

via Reality TV Gifs

This video from the Nerdwriter does a great job breaking down the tweets by device, tone, and punctuation to come to this conclusion: Trump isn’t using Twitter like a politician, he’s using it like regular person. Trump tweets for impact, and he knows how to do it. The Nerdwriter gets into some of the science of tweeting and more. Check it out.

Yesterday, we posted that YouTuber Adam Saleh— who is known, in part, for a recent airport security-related hoax — was allegedly thrown off of his Delta flight for speaking Arabic. Since then, both he and Delta have responded.

While Saleh maintains his position, Delta has claimed that he was removed because "he sought to disrupt the cabin with provocative behavior."

However, as many were quick to point out, whether or not this is a prank, Islamophobia on planes and other places remains a very serious and prevelant issue.

YouTuber Adam Saleh was allegedly forcefully removed from his Delta flight today for “speaking another language.” He posted a video to twitter of the whole event and then live tweeted it.

Saleh, a YouTuber with over 2 million subscribers, uploaded the video twitter where it has been retweeted over 450,000 times. To put that in perspective Donald Trump usually tops out under 170,000 retweets. 

Delta released a statement saying that they are investigating.

Making things a little murky is the fact that Saleh was already exposed this week for hoaxing an airport prank, in which he forced himself into a suit
