    Now, if this makes your eyes leak water, does it mean you're one of those sensitive guys you hear about?
    Regardless, this is fucking awesome! :D

    From CBS News:
    For all the videos we post here at The Feed, it's rare to capture a truly life-changing moment like the one above. Sarah Churman is a 29-year-old woman who was born deaf and has relied on hearing aids her whole life - though she writes, "hearing aids only help so much." That all changed when she received an Esteem hearing implant. Her husband shot this heartwarming video of activating her implant and "hearing myself for the first time."

    Sarah writes on her YouTube channel: "I had an implant put in 8 weeks ago called The Esteem Implant by Envoy Medical. I was born deaf and have worn hearing aids from the age of 2, but hearing aids only help so much. I have gotten by this long in life by reading lips. This was taken as they were activating the implant."

    The high-tech Esteem implant is embedded in her ear and works off of ear drum vibrations, unlike most hearing aids which use microphones and speakers. Sarah may have been able to hear some things before, but never like this. The joy and tears on her face can attest to that.

    hmm, i'm not totally convinced that she can actually hear stuff.

    someone should have come up from behind her and blown a whistle or crash some cymbals or bang a gong, something to get a genuine reaction.

    Great story from Marilyn Manson's autobiography

    His longtime keyboardist had a lifelong fantasy of fucking a deaf girl. The point being that he could yell whatever horrible obscenities he wanted and she wouldn't know what he was saying. So once, at a party, they got a bunch of slutty chicks and one of them was deaf. So he starts fucking her from behind in the middle of the room, shouting awful shit while everyone is cheering him on. And then he screamed "I'M GOING TO CUM IN YOUR USELESS EAR CANAL!!!"

    :c

    Not sure what a bitchhead is, but if you hit the escape key while watching your avatar? It looks like she's licking a frozen post for the very first time in her life...
