    everyone always acts weird around a blind person and is secretly happy and relieved when the blind person leaves. that would feel terrible if you were the blind person.

    I like to jerk off in front of blind people.

    Actually, can't you go blind from doing that too much? Maybe they did that to a blind person then became blind themselves.

    Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmm........ :bigthink

    About 8 years ago I had a blind guy work for me doing telemarketing. The kid never griped once, worked harder than everyone else and had consistently better results. Point is he was grateful that we hired him since he had a hell of a time landing a job. I think that was his outlook on life, gratitude. anyways Merry Christmas Dink!!

    yeah i don't think there's anything wrong with them. they just make people uncomfortable and i realized that they're kind of social lepers, unfortunately.

    There was this blind guy in my political science class. At first I felt sorry for him, but he turned out to be such an opinionated political prick that eventually I wanted to lead him to a pit of live alligators.

    Because I value my sight so much. Out of all the senses, I am most visually oriented I think. I would hate not seeing people, art, to read visually, to not be able to drive, etc. I know that people adapt when sensory issues become evident, it's just depressing to me the thought of not being able to see the world.

    it sucks especially with people who lost their sight later on in life. One of bros had a diabetic stroke and lost his sight later from years of not giving a shit. He now has a walking stick and its interesting watching peoples reactions when he's around. sorry im chatty like a broad when im :bong:

    i sometimes think it would be worst to lose your hearing, but even though it would be a terrible existence, at least you could navigate and locomote freely. losing my sight would be the worst. i honestly think i'd rather be dead.
