Eyeborg1NewsIcon This is incredible: color blind artist Neil Harbisson uses a prosthetic eyepiece to convert hues into sound.

  2. I just don't understand why Republicans are in such an uproar. The Supreme Court just said RomneyCare was constitutional! Sheesh.

  3. I'd never heard of that Youtube series "Husbands" until today. So I watched a few episodes... it is honestly the most wretched thing I've ever seen.

    I'm the last person to complain about stereotypes (hey, I like Modern Family) but the characters are insipid, horrid caricatures. It's like gay storylines for midwestern housewives who only know gay people from the ones they see on TV and the movies.
