Re: A bit of `armless fun !

When I worked with my dad, someone there had one arm.

My dad, (being more jokey and sarcastic than me) said "Don't worry about him, he's harmless".

Yes bit below the belt, but he was a nice person and having a sense of humour like my dad, he saw the funny side and wasn't offended.

The implication being some find it difficult to comprehend a person's disability doesn't effect their SOH...

I guess you've never seen the Last Leg during the Paralympics, or the stand up from the likes of Francesca Martinez or Rosie Jones.

Both have Cerebral Palsy, both of whom use their disabilities for comedy, and to break down the fears and misunderstandings the able bodied have of people with disabilities, and are both bloody hilarious.

On the subject of the Paralympics, I went in London 2012.

Amazing day, first major sporting event I had even been to. To see it in person is different and to see what these people do and not let it hold them back.

I'm live in London so Stratford was only a a train and a tube away. Watched the IAAF games at the stadium few weeks back.

I never understood why people want to watch things live such as your favourite band, football team etc. in person when you can argue you can watch it on your big HD TV, but after then now I do.
