    You know, disabled people are always trying to get treat like an every day normal.. able bodied person, things like this make it harder, OH LOOK I`M DISABLED AND I CAN DO THIS. If you want to be treat like everyone else.. then stop falunting the fact you are disabled. It`s just a contradiction if you ask me.

    "I don`t want to be treat differently but i will show off the fact that i`m disabled"

    That`s what it seems like to me.

    " look a disabled/retarded person"

    actaully, a `retarded` person is slow, and not
    very bright, this guy, he is just showing
    how as they said, he has turned his situation
    into something he and others enjoy,
    which is very hard to do, or many people
    just don`t do it.

    ((sorry for the DP))

    "OH LOOK I`M DISABLED AND I CAN DO THIS. If you want to be "
    actually, he`s just out there doing what he loves
    he`s not showing off the fact that he`s disabled
    him being disabled is just an obsticle he overcame
    to get to where he is today, it`s ignorant people
    like you, who act like that. And if any disabled person did act like that, it would be because of ignorant people that they can`t get as good jobs as able bodied people, so they have to get noticed.

    kittiechick.. have you ever TRIED to get on a skateboard... it took me years to learn how to do HALF the stuff he is doing WITH legs.
    this is pretty cool. i love it when ANYONE shows they are not going to be confined to a wheel chair the rest of their lives.. no matter WHAT they decide to do.. skate, instal satelites, whatever. good for them.

    now a serious question... little jr kid... was he mad BEFORE or AFTER.. and you think she hops on top?

    in some cases i think skating might be easier without the legs. Harder to fall off, all those cool tricks u do with your feet, well he gets to use his hands...CHEATING! The only real hard part i can see is getting his dumpy ass off the ground. Im not impressed.

    unbelievable, has anyone ever told you that you are stupid? skateing like that is alot harder than it looks. First of all he had polio. most people with polio are bedridden for thair life. 2nd, i would not call that cheating becouse HE HAS NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO SKATE WITH HIS HANDS! so next time you have something stupid to say, just let it go.
