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.

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

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.

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.

Gerry: tried it, didn`t work. next step was a wheel chair but apparently thats "frowned upon"...like apparently masturbating on an airplane...which no one told me was frowned upon before take off...

OH MY GOD! EUREKA! THAT`S IT!

I just have to take a pair of crutches to the clubs and people will say I`m a good dancer and stop laughing at me!

"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.
