    Reading Lips Must Be Hard As Shit

    I have no training, just experience. In my opinion lipreading requires the ability to immediately figure out the context of what is said, and assume/predict some of the things that are said, as fillers. I don't lipread 100% of the time, nor do I desire to. I do have the degree of skill to...

    Any "Schnauzer" owners here?

    Having had two mini schnauzers in the family, I can say they're great dogs, clever and fun altogether. Very friendly yes. Loyal and they listen very well.

    The "Mainstreaming" Experience: "Isolated cases"?

    I'm just one of few that's learning to do that. I will be participating in a workshop related to this subject with PFH and a group of people. I'll gladly start this thread up after the workshop - Meaning sometimes after the first weekend of April. Meanwhile, hold those questions in mind.

    The "Mainstreaming" Experience: "Isolated cases"?

    Sigh. Maybe I did push you around a little bit when I added the comments, but all I saw was what you had posted. I can't twist your words around if I'm asking you questions and asking for clarification. And by your definition, its OK to make the connection between the two terms, Deaf and...

    You should see a couple climbers at the local gym here. Beer belly's least of the worries. In other words, yeah, haha. For those who might be interested in rockclimbing indoors, here's a site with all the gyms across the US and even the world. Take a gander and maybe you can start there...

    The "Mainstreaming" Experience: "Isolated cases"?

    Explain what is disability. What is the real population? Are you saying we're not "real"? What is perfectly-abled? What I'm seeing is the implication that those deviate from the norm, in other words, we are "less intelligent", "less human", "second class", etc.? ...You like tossing rubber...

    Movies related to Deaf Culture?

    I see there's a sticky for books pertaining to Deaf culture, but nothing about movies. Which comes to me as a surprise. Could we get this thread sticky'd and if people are willing to share what movies are out about the Deaf culture? I personally don't know, and I'm curious.

    Rock climbing

    Find someone who climbs or is willing to get started in climbing, and just go for it. I personally just started at end of Jan/beginning of Feb. First time I climbed, I got hooked since.
