Re: London 2012 Paralympics
Some of the athletes with a higher classification are able to get around without assistance. And some of the artificial legs used aren't real obvious from a distance. When I saw Jessica Long walk out I couldn't even tell she had artificial legs until she took them off, and I had to see him jump three times before I finally realized that the Polish high jumper had an artificial leg.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
