What colour are these pills? It is the dress thing all over AGAIN


Remember that dress that people either saw as white and gold or blue and black? Well there is another frenzy over the colour of pills this time. 

A picture widely distributed on social media platforms depicts two hands holding one pill each. One hand is yellow and the other blue. However, no one can seem to agree on the colour of the pills.

Some people say the pills are grey in both hands, while others see one blue and one red. On a Buzzfeed poll, the majority of people, that is over 79 thousand, sees them as grey, yet over 43 thousand people sees it as red and blue.

SeaFM seems to have figured out what the fuss is all about. It says the pills are actually grey but illusion of the ‘red and blue’ pill is created by the yellow and blue hands.
