Behold #TheDress emoji because we'll never escape the Internet — Welcome to A.T.D. - After The Dress. Now that a blue-and-black dress changed our view of the universe, we need a way to integrate it into every aspect of our lives. And because we all live on our phones, the only way to achieve true #TheDress integration is by emoji.

We're all crying over the Spock funeral scene in 'Khan' — "Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most human." With those words, Admiral James T. Kirk said a tearful goodbye to Spock in the 1982 film The Wrath of Khan. The emotional scene resurfaced Friday with news that Leonard Nimoy, the original Spock on Star Trek, died at age 83.

Lego settles #TheDress debate: Why not both? — Lego is building a case for dress unity. On Friday morning, as the blue (or white) dust settled on # TheDress debate, Lego hopped in on the conversation with some wise words. May we not let #TheDress divide us. (Even though we all know it was blue and black.)

Good job, Internet. Your #TheDress jokes cured the blues — Oh, Internet, you had fun tonight. The Great Dress Color Debate of 2015 took over the whole damn Internet on Thursday. And because humor is the best way to deal with controversial optical illusions, everyone chimed in with a joke. Now, we're left in stitches. (Sorry.)

You can buy the blue-black, white-gold dress for $77 — The debate is over. The dress that had the Internet booking eye appointments is ... *drumroll* ... black and blue. We're super sorry, Team White and Gold. Take one last moment to think the dress looks like something Donald Trump designed.

Artist pieces together collages for Best Picture Oscar nominees — The 2015 Best Picture Oscar nominees each have a look all their own. The pastel whimsy of The Grand Budapest Hotel looks nothing like the gritty, dimly lit setting of Whiplash. Artist Geoff J. Kim captured the aesthetics of this year's eight nominees with fanciful collages. Check them out, below.

Jim Cantore's thundersnow weather-gasm set to auto-tune — Thundersnow: a weather phenomenon and, now, a bumping tune. The Weather Channel meteorologist Jim Cantore was reporting from Massachusetts last weekend when thundersnow rumbled overhead, giving Cantore an intense weather-gasm. Video of Cantore's freakout has racked up more than 3 million views on YouTube.

The Big Bird, 'Birdman' parody that needed to happen — Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? Or is it all in our heads? *dramatic experimental music* Big Bird and Caroll Spinney star in the existential parody that the world needed.

Moms review 'Fifty Shades of Grey' [VIDEO] — Andrea and Elaine think Fifty Shades of Grey isn't any raunchier than Game of Thrones. The moms-turned-reviewers watched the erotic big-screen hit, based on the novel by E.L. James, with their (only slightly) embarrassed daughters, and offered their perspectives. Mashable staffers also reluctantly agreed to ask their moms for written reviews of the film.

Cookie Monster reads profound, food-related shower thoughts — Cookie Monster is a Muppet of few words - mostly cookie-related words. But the furry blue monster goes deep with profound musings on food, inspired by the splish-splash geniuses at Reddit's r/ShowerThoughts. Truly, though, what was the best thing before sliced before?
