    Are you going to watch it?

    I personally don't get it, its not even with each person having completely different disabilities.

    If each athlete had the same disability then fine but any event I've ever seen has one person miles ahead of the rest.

    They should equalise disabilities. Cut off what is extra, blind an eye. Yeah!

    Ha, no, just saying no events are close and so are very boring.

    You know there's a show on channel 4 called 'spazticus' where disabled people play pranks on non-disabled people.

    Spazticus.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    I find it hard to rave about the 'winning' because to my mind there are too many variables. Also I get upset that no-one's ever come up with short person basketball for my particular disability.

    That said I hope everyone involved has a jolly nice time and you can't fault the effort and dedication that goes into the training. There's an awesome Channel 4 advert that I saw in the cinema that did a superb job of selling it.

    I don't blame him, being full of holes and technically dead should have at least got him into the basketball team.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    Leave Jesus out of it, a prophet (not son of god) has no business here.

    Disabilism? How about you address the issue of fairness, instead of regurgitating mindless politcal-correct nonsense?
    Apologies, it appears the irony did not come across very well.

    But what would the alternative be Revan - only let athletes compete if the have the same disability? Have separate events for each type of disability? Not have Paralympics at all?

    I'll watch it. I won't be as into it or as hyped as I was for the prior games (bit burnt out on it all), but I'm still interested. I don't see why the two are treated so separately though - I think they should do the closing ceremony for the Olympics and then the following day or week the Paralympics should begin.

    I'm Spasticus, I'm Spasticus, I'm Spasticus Autisticus!

    I never saw the show, but it made me think of that song.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    One day they'll be attached to awesome biologically engineered electronic attachments. It'll be like a human robot wars. Except with less Craig Charles and more killing.

    The Paralympics is pretty shit. No one actually cares about it, but many feel obliged to pretend they do. I'm certain 99% of disabled people couldn't give a fuck about it either.

    Seriously, if you want anyone to take you even partially seriously, you will stop posting from your fucking phone. You come across like some sort of retarded brain cancer survivor. If that.

    The thread title was definitely written by a paralympian.

    Given that about 30% are in it, I'd say you're wrong.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.
