Shove your inspiring motivational story.

I don't like stories of people overcoming adversity, because they make me feel like an underachiever. I saw a guy in a wheelchair roll up to a step in front of a building, push outta the wheelchair, swing the wheelchair over the step, throw himself back into the wheelchair and roll on. That'll ruin your day.

I said, "Man, that disabled guy is strong." My friend said, "He's not disabled. He's handicapable." Now, I don't know what it's like to hafta use a wheelchair to get around, but if I did, and someone called me handicapable, I'd stab him in the throat. Just cut a curb into the sidewalk and keep your spin control.

Dude.

I am disabled, and if someone ever calls me handicapeable I'm going to run them over in my truck.

You don't know me, but you'll be able to tell who I am because I'll be the one on the sidelines cheering and clapping.

*grin* Should I back up and run over them again? >:)

Can if you want to! I'll even be nice enough to wash and wax your truck for you!

*sighs*

Do you ever just want to teleport in, destroy some property, fortify the human race by removing the flotsam, and teleport out?

Yay! A clean truck is a bonus.

And yes. OFTEN. Especially when there are idjits out there who say stupid things like 'handicapeable' and 'the evil gays caused the hurricane to destroy New Orleans!'

Not that the two are directly related, but they're two things bugging me today.

W.T.F ass-hat said THAT??? Jerry Fallwell?

Gays got super-powers now! Grand! I am SO voting for Ian McKellen to be the next American President. Some thug nation gets up in our face, all he has to do is flap his wrist and the wind-storm will knock 'em into the ionosphere.

Ah, well. It's obvious I'm a Misanthropologist, and no mistake!

And, yes, clean trucks are WAY bonus-y. ^_^

No, actually, it was some asshat I'd never heard of. Of course, Falwell probably agrees, but I dunno if anyone's paying attention to him lately. Between Pat Robertson jumping all over the Republicans for the crony issues, and Bakker running his mouth about the President's carte blanche from God to do his thing, I think there's enough crazies blabbing.

And yay! I'd vote for Sir Ian, too! I love the man. He'd bring class back to the White House, too!

A 'Misanthropologist?' I like that! Woohoo!

I think I've gradually evolved to become a Discordian: It's not that I don't believe in the system -- it's that I don't believe there IS a system.

As for Sir Ian... oh HELL yeah! And that groovy accent, too. ^_~

Misanthropology: The study of why there's too many idiots in the world and why most of 'em should die soon.

I used to be nicer about it all, but then the Precious People won the right to take my religion (Christianity) away from me. Words cannot express my opinion on this - stand by for gestures. *smirk*

I totally want to steal the line "It's not that I don't believe in the system -- it's that I don't believe there IS a system."

Damn right. None of the wheelchair users I know need to be protected with word-pity.

silvarbelle: I hear that!

Is it just me, or have Americans -- as a generalization -- become so frail that we must pet the idiot bunnies on the head in the most grandiose condescending manner just to make ourselves look good?

Used to be, crippled people were crippled people, and, like the rest of us, either adapted or died.

Currently, I'm using a cane to get around, and my Mother keeps bellowing at me in public: "Hurry up, Cripple! I don't have all day!"

I tell her to shove that kind of talk up her ass because I don't like being called a cripple, especially the way she says it. I'm NOT crippled; I'm SLOW, but I'm AMBULATORY. But you should not TAUNT happy fun super gimp who has a CANE and knows how to do Very Bad Things with said cane.

But I refuse to use political correctness. And anytime someone says, "I'm offended!" I give 'em a salute and say: "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!" and then I tell them to either toughen up or just go ahead and die to make room for the stronger members of the pack.

Never mess with a Misanthropologist, stewmeat! ^_^

So! How're you doing, hon? Give Aimee a hug for me!

I'm much better now! Thanks!
