    "now...i dont know what polio is...but this guy doesn`t seem disabled in the least with all that leg movement going on... "

    Depending on when treatment begins and how the patient responds to the virus, polio may only weaken the muscles of the legs, meaning that patients may still be able to walk...although with assistance.

    Do some research on poliomyelitis. It is a good reason to ensure vaccination of children because the next polio outbreak is only a plane-ride away. It is also the reason FDR was wheelchair-bound.

    I saw this guy perform live, actually. He`s pretty cool on stage. I just feel it`s a bit odd to watch sometimes because legs are such an important part of dance.

    Nothing is more fun than a cripple having a seizure. I`d put a quarter in his hat if I ever saw him performing his herp-derp stunts in the street.

    It would have been much better if he didn`t pick such a god-awful song to dance to.

    lol Dergin... I used to work with him for 3 years on Varekai. He`s lazy as drat and a total jerk, but it was interesting to see how much pussy he got.
