Yesterday, GOOD reported on a three-year argument raging on the Internet over whether a picture taken on a golf course is of Tom Hanks or Bill Murray. Today, there’s a mind-bending photo of a pair of legs that has people scratching their heads. The question everyone’s asking is: Are these legs covered in a shiny substance or not? The photo was originally posted by Instagram user Hunter Culverhouse and has been taken down since.

Here’s how people are reacting to the photo on Twitter:

SOLUTION: The photo is of legs with streaks of white paint on them.

According to Culverhouse, the optical illusion was accidental. “[I] had some white paint left on my brush and put random lines on my legs, turned out to be a completely confusing picture for everyone on the Internet,” Culverhouse told Insider. “The first time I posted it, it didn’t go completely crazy,” Culverhouse says. “But then I reposted it again and other big accounts started to post it and share it. Then it took to Twitter and YouTubers started tweeting about it as well.”

The interesting thing about this illusion is once you realize it’s white paint, it’s nearly impossible to see the legs as shiny again.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
