There's A New Flappy Bird Spinoff, And It's Infinitely Harder

Flappy Bird, one of the most addictive (and hardest) games we've seen for the iPhone, was pulled from the App Store, but clones of the game have never stopped coming.
The latest imitation, called Flappy48, combines the mechanic of the original game, in which you need to jump over a series of obstacles, with 2048, a puzzle game in which you slide tiles on a board in order to create the number 2048.
The result is an amazingly hard, yet (once again) addictive game that has already caught the attention — and generated some rage — of the Reddit community.
The game is from Dan Moran, a computer science major at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Moran claims he made the game in less than a day.
To play the game, you only need a web browser with the Unity plugin installed. Good luck, and please don't hate us.

Where my Peeps at? It's finally spring, which means Easter candies are filling our baskets stomachs once again.
Every holiday has its own signature seasonal treat. Christmas rocks candy canes, Halloween reluctantly has candy corn, but Easter owns the strangest treat of them all — Peeps.
These freaky fluorescent critters are odd to say the least. In fact, many of us don't even eat the marshmallow-y snack.
So what do you do with them? To celebrate this strange treat, here are a few of the weird things you can do with your Peeps after you've downed all the jelly beans and feel crazy.

There's no competing with the classic image of Audrey Hepburn riding a bicycle, but that didn't stop Kim Kardashian from trying.
The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star, 33, was spotted channeling Hepburn on the set of a Miami photo shoot on Tuesday. In the photographs, Kim is wearing Audrey's signature ensemble of a black turtleneck, cropped pants, and ballet flats, and has her hair pulled back into a chic ponytail. She even sported a pair of faux bangs in an attempt to really nail Hepburn's look.
