I have something really poignant to say about the issue, but I'm unable to express myself in any other way than by a poem:



Wormie was a worm, wormy was he

he was very little, smaller than me

and Wormie lived in an apple, nice and sweet

but me and you and all, shall one day meet

in purgatory.

"and I stand

upon a mountain

made of weak and useless men"

thats sort of what I feel to SS, only I think it's really a peach.







eta: actually I've been thinking that maybe I'm like one of those vertual twin particals that come into existance, and come together and are gone again.



somewhere out there there is someone like me, but opposite, in someway.

I enjoy the olympics.I dont see what being disabled has to do with anything your picking the best competitors that you can find to compete agesnt the best in the world.Im not disabled and I still cant compete either because im old and out of shape so that means the olympics is fascist? Maybe they should have the old out of shape and dwarf olympics.Also there is the special olympics in the U.S for disabled people.Im sure if you had a dwarf who was the best in the U.S at gymnastics the s/he would be allowed to compete for the U.S in the regular olympics.

yes, sorry fair point: there is no reason any human endeavour should be unnecessarily limited by the properties of the populous. Which lead me to say "forget about it"



anyway I invoked Godwin's Law, so lost the argument, quite rightly, right from the start.





I also enjoy some parts of sports.
