          Now I'm curious… can you whisper it softly into my ear? I'll compensate with a foot rub. Trolls love foot rubs.

    I love this picture because it tells a deep story where there is pain and sorrow, yet he is triumphant in his battles where he conquered swimming and became one of the best! Kudos buddy! You are #1

    You can cut a man down but you still can't take away his dreams. It's like they say " what doesn't break you, makes you stronger ".

      How about if it was a hot chick with no legs? Then would you think otherwise? Perhaps bet the meat with a slight hesitation (like if one were to jerk off on his moms bed simply because she has a TV in her room and ones father is hogging the only other television?)

    Every time I feel unmotivated and don't want to get out of bed or do anything constructive, I find articles like this one. Articles where someone was delivered a double-decker shit sandwich by life and made the most of it, living their lives as a testament to the unbreakable human will and inner strength.

    Then I REALLY feel like shit.

    #8 A man with no legs helps a man with no arms. Impressive sir. A reminder that there is still lots and lots of good people on our little rock.

    #3 & #9, reverse lever and butterfly… that takes some strength to perform without any handicaps. He's an amazing instance of human perseverance and mental fortitude. Best of luck in the 2012 paralympics!
