Me too - they can windmill those paddles around far faster than the able-bodied athletes.

They've just shown some bird, in bra and jeans, being man-handled away from the opening ceremony. :rofl:

I don't get paralympics at all.
Weren't they saying just now that someone who had not had any interest in sport/athletics might get something removed and become eligible in 2012? :roll:

I know this is the NAAFI, and anything goes however, for at least here in Canuckistan, the Paraplympics folks have been assisting our CF personnel for some time. They set up a fund for wounded members called Soldier On. http://www.cfpsa.com/en/psp/SoldierOn/index.asp

I believe some of the Cdn paralympic team members are CF members as well. You might even find on the UK team a few injured soldiers as well.

I'm hoping the OP has confused the paralympics with the special olympics. If that be the case, then he's a mong himself.

Why do I get the impression that people are mixing up the Paralympics with the Special Olympics? :roll:

Mongs/people with intellectual difficulties/brummies were banned from the Paralympics after 2004 because they were cheating and weren't in fact mongs after all.

Fcuking hell, I think there would be a fleet of outrage buses/petitions all over the place if civvies started slagging off service personnel who had been permanently injured whilst on duty so why the hell do some people on here feel the need to have a go at athletes who are paralysed or are amputees?

There's humour and there is bad taste (even in the Naafi forum). This thread is the latter.

Seriously, I didn't mean to offend. It's just that I struggle with the concept. I had a Google search to try to educate myself a bit.

I discovered this:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/ouch/paralympics/facts/

I had to read this bit twice: :omg:

11. 'Boosting' is a phenomenon whereby athletes with spinal cord injuries attempt to raise their blood pressure, causing their body to also rise to an unnaturally high state of stimulation. This leads to a kind of 'fight or flight' mentality which is ideal for physical competition.

Some boosting techniques include sitting on ball bearings or pins, tying piano wire around the scrotum and turning off catheters. These methods give paralyzed athletes no pain but cause their sympathetic nervous systems to drive their blood pressure straight up, improving performance by as much as 15%.

It should be noted, however, that the disability 'boosting' practice is just as illegal as doping offences we occasionally hear about in Olympics and Paralympics.

I've been watching the Paralympics opening ceremony since 1pm and there's not been a single punch-up or badly spelled tattoo in all that time. If someone doesn't start a game of freckles soon, I'm turning over.

Sounds sexual, did MDN develop this technique :D

The opening ceromony - did MDN have a hand in the design of the outfits? - the one piece semi inflatable latex numbers would be a hit with any self-respecting / abusing deviant. :)

Wow....an event where you can be a winner and a loser at the same time.

Q. What's even better than being a gold medallist at the paralympics?

A. Not being retarded.

Can I suggest everyone listen to this- Stephen Lynch- Special Olympics

Stephen Lynch: Special Olympics said:
Watch them run, watch them fall,
Watch them try to catch a ball, olympics
At the special olympics.

Watch them laugh, watch them drool,
Watch them fall into the pool, that's diving.
At the special olympics.

And I know full well, that I will burn in hell,
But those guys playing wheelchair basketball gotta be about the funniest freakin' thing I've ever seen in my life,
At the special olympics.

[spoken]
Verse Two
[singing]
Kid with downs wins the race, even though he stood in place, olympics.
At the special...(laughter)olympics.

'Round his neck, gold medals hung.
Resting on his giant tongue, olympics.
Special olympics.

But I kid when I sing, cause these games are a beautiful thing.
Okay, really, I'm just avoiding karma, 'cus i know my kids could be born blind, crippled, semi-retarded and i'll have to spend all of my time...
at the special olympics.
And can I also remind everyone that it is infact un-PC to refer to the Games as 'The Real Robot Wars'
