DAREDEVIL! WOOT! lol, maybe... he CAN do anything (except come back to life... or move things with his mind... or throw lazers from the holes where his eyes should be... or use glasses... or whine that`s too bright... you get the idea)

They said nothing is impossible for him. HOW BOUT RECITING PI TO 1000 PLACES. Sorry, I just hate how some people think they are so great. Not that I don`t feel bad, I`m more like, "oh really? thats cool..." So yeah.

Okay, I`ve seen some idiotic posts here, but the ones that say they don`t believe he`s really blind... well, that`s just a stupid thing to say. It IS possible to use echo-location when you`re blind. Just because you can`t do it doesn`t mean everybody else can`t as well. )-|

So what?!?!?!? I would like to see anyone here who is hating on this kid walk through their house (that they should have memorized by now) one time blindfolded and see how well they fare. This kid is amazing, and the story is about him, no one else! Stupid people complain all the time because of minor ailments, and this kid has NO EYES!!!!!

This kid is pretty cool. I would love to meet him. The way he knows what/where things are is sonar. Since the rest of his senses are better, he uses "clicking" to detect things. The sounds bounce off of objects and the shape gets portrayed of sound in his mind. Hes got talent. Hes cool.

His mom is really lucky to have a kid so brave and so strong.

that was awsome
i read stuff like "how did he know it was a trash can" and "how does he figure a hot girl from any ugly one"
#1: its sonar, with sonar you can hear shapes
#1: for blind people hotness and uglynes doesnt really matter cuz they kinda cant see,and he probly cant recognize facial features

im amazed truly, i am. what surprises me the most is that he won`t let his disability slow him down at all. i`m glad to see that their are still people who don`t bitch about not being able to see because they`re blind, or hear because they`re deaf, or write because they broke an arm. big deal?! this kid did what was best for him, by doing something about it. and if i saw him, i wouldn`t even be able to tell the difference. (except for the whole `no eyes` thing.)

Way to go boy and way to go mom...

This mom is amazing, I wish I was that good... I know i will have been sad and I know I will have over protect my child. She great and that guy is amazing ^^

And its possible to play videogame (mostly fighting games) whitout seeing anything... but I most say I like to see when i kick someone ass ^_- I think the fact he play babyfoot was way more amazing.

And yes, I bet he have tons of GF... He really look like a funny guy. And who have complex in front of a blind guy XD

And who care if he is black... And no, black people not ALWAYS LIVE IN GHETTO... -__-;;

I was promised kids making dolphin noises.
CLICKS DO NOT QUALIFY AS DOLPHIN NOISES.

[Note, I do realize that dolphins also use clicks for echolocation, I just wanted EHAHAHAHAHs]

That`s awesome, and his mom rules. I wonder how he figured out the echolocation, if he heard about it or just intuitvely started using it. Did they explain on Oprah? (haha oprah, what a guilty indulgence!)

"He certainly hasn`t let that minor setback keep him stranded."

The guy`s blind, I`d call the a huge f*ckin` setback. Loosing my sight is the thing I dread the most in life.

i noticed he was playing fighting games. i used to play those pusing random buttons with my eyes closed and kick ass.

it blows me away how there are some black people who would consider him weak, or less of a man because he`s not "being black" he doesnt carry a gun, botch the english language or live in the ghetto.

this boy and his family are to be praised for more than just his ability. (sorry for bringing up the race issue, but this is cool)

i love it when i see people flurishing, especially through hardships.

this story made my heart smile.

Gotta say I`m with woot... there`s no way u can play video games when you`re blind! - The voices mey be heard, the footsteps may be heard... but there`s no way u can know what`s infront of you in the game and hence could walk into/ off anything!

actually woot there are other cases of people playing video games blind, like the kid who played mortal kombat and could kick peoples a$$es. So don`t be ignorant about this kids ability.

Awesome kid.

Woot45--YOU CANT SEE WHEN YOU HAVE NO EYES, DUDE!
And CBS don`t lie. usually.
i believe everything is possible.
I think that`s awesome, because I know kids that wouldn`t last a day if they were blind...they would freak out. And feel sorry for themselves.
besides, when you lose 1 sense the rest get stronger.

That`s freaky. I mean, I know that when you lose one of the 5 senses, the other 4 become more enchanced to compensate, but that`s just freakishly amazing.

am i the only one who is just a tad skeptical? I mean how does he know that it`s a fire hydrant, or a trash can, etc, unless he knows that road from memory...

and something off topic here, sorry if it`s in bad taste, but i can`t resist...
