Contrary to stereotypical belief, people who are color blind can indeed see colors, they just have a harder time of distinguishing them from each other. Kind of like when a wife asks her husband's opinion on paint swatches and he replies with "Aren't they all basically the same?" Color blind individuals aren't stupid either, and it's patronizingly annoying to ask them if they know what the color of your shirt is, or your friend's shirt, or the couch, or the wall, or that car over there. So next time you see someone who's outfit clashes horribly with itself, perhaps they don't have a poor fashion sense, they just legitimately thought all the colors matched. Watch to see what other facts BuzzFeed found out about what it's like to be color blind.

These Devices Look Like Fun...Until They Aren't

Maher from the YouTube channel Random Box Unbox was taking this prototype scooter for a test drive when things went awry. While he was riding the scooter, it malfunctioned and stopped, throwing Maher off. Ouch! That had to hurt. It did take him a few weeks to recover, but luckily he's OK overall. One thing we can say for sure is it looks like that model isn't ready to hit the market just yet.  Next, Tyson's grandpa looks like he's having a blast spinning on this hoverboard... until he falls off.
