I have no comment on this video, other than the fact that this kid is utterly amazing, as are his mother’s refreshing parenting skills:
Hat tip to my friend Joey.
Irony? Did Hannah see my comment on the Black Face Richards video? It was made 10 minutes before this post.
Nope, hadn't even read it yet--just found the story via a bulletin my friend posted on Myspace.
OK, she's a great mom, but listen at about the 2:45 mark and tell me her name isn't "Aquanetta."
Best mother's name ever.
Holy shit! Best name ever indeed.
Hey, that kid was on Oprah already... Um, you know, I was like, flipping channels and stuff..
Aquanetta's son is amazing. I especially thought the video game thing was impressive. It's one thing to use echo location to sense what's around you, but to be able to navigate through video games seems a whole other challenge.
In other sense news, the NYT has an interesting piece about lexical-gustatory synaesthesia, as researched by somebody here at University of Edinburgh, where I'm doing my research. Odd stuff.
I was aware that blind people use echolocation, but I don't think I've ever heard somebody using the "dolphin clicks" before to enhance it. Is that common?
What a cool story! Mom Aquanetta has done a phenomenal job, and both of their attitudes are amazing.
PML though that even a completely blind kid plays video games. Teenagers! Heee.
