  2. disgusting. why do gays give all these awards to no talent nonsense queens who pretend to care for a minute. does anyone remember her horrible "ur so gay" with this loving lyric: I hope you hang yourself with your H&M scarf

    come on trevor-preventing suicides but giving an award to a woman who promotes it in an offensively titled song.

  3. The blind guy is interesting. It's not possible to describe color to a blind person because color is in your head, it's an illusion created by the brain. Objects reflect light, but light doesn't carry "color" information, it carries "frequency" and "amplitude" information which the brain interprets as color.

  4. I've always been fascinated about the fact that blind people have no concept of color, and how to explain it to them.
