  4. Smile The Disability Test.

    There are great disadvantages in being disabled. There are however some advantages in concessions and considerations, which try to compensate, or at least ameliorate, the effects of disability. If you can get the latter advantages without the disadvantages of the former, that would be good...

  6. Cranky ??

    Does your disability make you cranky and all out of sorts at times ? Well, mine does since I've gotten older. Some days I hate myself I'm so out of sorts from the discomfort.

  7. Handicap Accessible Golf Courses

    The 18 hole course that I play and belong to is like all other courses in the U.S. in that it requires each of the holes to be accessible for the handicapped player.

  10. What are the practical and applicable concepts of quantum physics?

I would like you all to express your views on this and if you...

  15. Blade Runner

    His legs were amputated when he was a year old. Now Oscar Pistorius is on track to make the South African Olympic team. Is he an engineering marvel — or just one hell of a sprinter? Oscar Leonard Carl Pistorius (born 22 November 1986) is a South African Paralympic runner. Known as the "Blade...

Why has it increased so dramatically in the last 20 years? How could it increase if it is a genetic disease? Why is one identical twin severely...

  19. Smile A View from The Wheelchair.

    I take the presumptive view these days that since I have lately been in a bit of a physical decline, and haven’t been able to concentrate on much other than not kicking the bucket, you may be interested in an aspect of debility.
