    I Was Today Years Old When I Saw The 8 In The Middle Of An 8 Of Diamonds

    Today years old.

    There are things that pop up every now and then that make you question everything you think you knew.

    Who can forget "the dress" debacle?

    Well, this weekend one of those such things came up when Twitter user @PlinketyPlink posted this on her timeline.

    It reads: What age were you when you first saw the 8 in the middle of the 8 of diamonds?

    Ummmm. Let's just say that a ton of people were...today years old?

    @PlinketyPlink @rachelh1711 Now 😯 yrs old

    And the flood of comments began.

    @PlinketyPlink Cripes! I just saw it right now. And in 3 months and 2 days I'll be 67.

    Even people who see a deck of cards a whole lot were surprised by this realization.

    @PlinketyPlink @BillSimmons Today...49 years old & just saw it today. Been playing cards my whole life

    Then there were some who didn't get it, but really wanted to.

    @PlinketyPlink @alwaysnsumshyt somebody make me understand that or see that please

    Which required this hilarious explanation.

    @Hassan_xDD @PlinketyPlink @alwaysnsumshyt May be

    So, what does it say that this tweet went viral? Who knows, but that was sure fun.

    @PlinketyPlink the fact this went viral shows peoples priorities in life.
