UK Gets Minecraft Makeover

Color IQ Test

Color blindness is a more common medical condition than many people realize, with one in 12 men and one in 255 women suffering from the condition to some degree. It’s very difficult to know whether you’re one of those people affected or not, but the Color IQ test from a company called X-Rite should help you figure it out.

Kimmel Vs Kanye

Between the two of them Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel have provided the Web with a veritable treasure trove of good stuff recently. Kanye kicked things off by giving an interview to BBC Radio 1 in which he was at his arrogant, overblown best. Kimmel then mocked that interview by using children as stand-ins, and the whole thing escalated quickly.

Kanye then took to Twitter to aim a volley of vitriolic abuse in the direction of Jimmy Kimmel. It ended with Kanye posting a picture of Kimmel as Spongebob Squarepants, which means the raucous rapper took time out of his day to Google said image and then Photoshop it for his own amusement. Which is hilarious behaviour from the number one rock star on the planet.

Kanye has since deleted all of the tweets ranting and raving at Kimmel, but they can all be seen on Know Your Meme. Kanye actually only has 33 tweets remaining on his Twitter feed at the time of writing despite being on the social networking site since 2010. #NothingGetsDeletedForeverKanye
