This is blind-since birth Tommy Edison. Tommy was presumably named after famous inventor Thomas Edison, who was born not only blind, but with the head of a lizard. "Stop rewriting history." Haha, I'm hoping some kid doing a school report reads this and mistakes it for truth. HE INVENTED iPODS. This is a two minute video of Tommy trying to explain color. It's pretty interesting to hear what he has to say. Short story even shorter: basically, he has no concept. It would be like me trying to explain what the embrace of a woman who isn't my mom feels like.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Ben, the man behind the camera, for getting my brain churning so early on a Monday morning. Like a defibrillator to the cerebral cortex.
