Qian Hongyan was just four when she lost both her legs. A speeding trucker left her for dead as she crossed the main road in her village of Zhuangshang in southern China. 
For nearly two years Qian was immobile as she didn’t even have enough of her body left to sit up in a wheelchair. Doctors said her only hope of being able to move by herself again would be extensive surgery to allow her to be fitted with prosthetic limbs.Her parents couldn’t afford this treatment. 
Qian’s granddad Yuan came up with a simple but effective treatment to get her moving again. He took a basketball the village boys had discarded and cut a hole just big enough for tiny Qian to fit into, padded the inside with stiff floor mats from his car, then propped her up inside. All of a sudden Qian was able to stabilize herself and was able to by move herself by rolling the ball in any direction she wanted. She supported herself using wooden handles. 
From that day on Qian would not be stopped by any obstacle. She went back to school, started to play with her friends again, and started to get back the life of any girl her age. She began professional swimming training in 2007 and defied the odds of her double amputation to become one of the first members of the Yunnan Youth Swimming Club.
She won three gold medals in last year’s Yunnan Para Games and took a gold and two silver medals at the National Swimming Championship for the Disabled (Under 18) in 2009 before continuing impressively at this year’s Para Games.

I should have added this in the original post but after attention in the Chinese press, Qian traveled to Beijing to receive free artificial limbs at the China Rehabilitation Research Center, a center that has been providing help to the disabled in China for over 20 years. At 18 years old she is ready for her full adult prosthetics. 


Inspirational Smart Girl!

Yaallah forgive us for complaining when we should be saying alhamdulillah.

“Al Qaeda still wants to kill us but we’ve been pretty successful at keeping them from doing that. For some reason we needed a new boogeyman. I wonder why?
 
We’ve spent trillions on Homeland Security, outfitted every Barney Fife in the nation with robo-cop gear and allowed the government to spy on Americans at will. I don’t know about you but I kind of expect that all of that should actually be worth something. If we’re going to run around tearing our hair out every time somebody puts out a scary video maybe it’s time to re-evaluate that strategy.
 
This is not to say that there isn’t a threat for the people in the Middle East and there is a legitimate argument to be made that it requires intervention from outside the region lest the whole place blows up even further. (I’m not sure we won’t make things worse —- we usually do — but I understand the arguments for it.) What is galling is the fact that they continue to treat us like children and tell us spooky bedtime stories so they can scare us into supporting their commercial/geopolitical goals. Maybe those goals are worth pursuing but we’ll never know because we’re chasing evil Ninjas who are allegedly coming over the border to unleash mushroom clouds on American cities.
 
[…]
 
Al Qaeda has a strategy to create dramatic terrorist attacks on the West. We’ve known this for a long, long time. That has not changed. ISIS is a different problem. The fact that the war hawks pimped this line about ISIS being worse than Al Qaeda should make everyone skeptical of what they are hearing about this whole thing —- and skeptical of the motivations behind it. How many times do we have to be lied to?”

So they aren’t more dangerous to us than al Qaeda after all? Why would they have said that?

When I suggested that the GOP was trying to make us really super afraid of ISIS because there’s an election coming up, and they do this before every election going back a decade, the stupidsphere lost its collective shit at me, and said that I believed — I am not making this up — that ISIS is “a Republican plot to win elections.” Of course, that’s not what I said, but boy when those idiots get stuck on a narrative, they *really* go all-in with it.

ISIS is bad news, and especially bad news to its region, but we don’t need to be wetting our pants about them here in America, because, in spite of what the GOP and the bedwetters in the stupidsphere want us to believe, the entire stupid homeland security apparatus has been pretty good at keeping the bad guys out of America (unless you count the handful of morons who were entrapped by FBI, posing as terrorists, who never would have gotten a single idea off the ground otherwise.)

The stupidsphere desperately wants to start dropping bombs all over the place, because they don’t know how to do anything else, and they really need to feel macho, facts be damned.

“People speak sometimes about the “bestial” cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts; no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel.”

The Pleasure Brigade The government higher-ups in North Korea are treated by a group of about 2,000 attractive young women for their pleasure called ‘The Pleasure Brigade’. These women are divided in through groups - one group exclusively for  relaxation, another group for entertainment such as singing and dancing, and another group mainly for pleasure.…

There is a veil of mystery over the Communist nation of North Korea. This warmongering country, currently led by Kim Jong-un, likes to keep its daily life a closely guarded secret. While it doesn’t openly discuss the terrible conditions of its people, many of their plights are known. Let’s take a look at these disgusting things North Korea would rather you not know.

Wow. Just wow.

Ex South Carolina Republican operative, Todd Kincannon took to Twitter on Sept. 9 to post an utterly tone-deaf reaction to the TMZ video showing NFL athlete Ray Rice knocking unconcious his then-fiancee Janay Palmer. While the Tweet has since been taken down, it wasn’t before someone took a screenshot of the tweet in which Kincannon vilifies the victim by saying that the “dumb bitch” got what she deserved for starting the whole mess. 
Kincannon’s gross display of misogyny did not stop there.


Holy shit. And people like this are proud of themselves. WTF. corporationsarepeople:

Let’s begin.

  1. MOST HORRIFIC EVP EVER RECORDEDIn January 2007, the Central New York Ghost Hunters investigated an old hotel in upstate New York. According to them it was the most active ghost hunt. After they investigated the tape they discovered some startling material: the voices of men and women not present as well as a women being attack. There’s a lot more information, just click on the link and listen. 
  2. AUDITORY HALLUCINATIONS: It was designed to provide the listener with some understanding of what it might be like to experience auditory hallucinations. Content in this presentation is based on things clients told a mental health outreach worker. 
  3. JONESTOWN DEATH TAPE: An audio recording made on November 18, 1978, at the Peoples Temple compound in Jonestown, Guyana immediately preceding and during the mass suicide and murder of over 900 members of the cult.
  4. THE INTERROGATION CHAMBER 3D AUDIOA 3D audio is one in which it feels like it’s happening RIGHT in front of you. This is an audio recording that contains violent material of a rough interrogation. 
  5. THE ORIGINAL NIGHT STALKER: The Original Night Stalker is the name given to an unidentified serial killer and rapist who murdered at least ten people in Southern California from 1979 through 1986. This is a recording on one of the victim’s answering machine.
  6. SOUNDS OF SPACE: Space maybe mostly empty but boy it creates some horrific sounds. 
  7. MOCK ACTIVATION OF A NUCLEAR ATTACK: So this is what the end of the world sounds like
  8. THE BLOOP: A mysterious sound from the bottom of the deep ocean. Some say it was gigantic sea creature but scientists speculate it was a large iceberg scraping the ocean floor.
  9. OPERATION WANDERING SOUL:  Also known as “Ghost Tape Number 10” was an audio mix the US military used for psychological operations in the Vietnam War against the North Vietnamese. It played deeply on the Vietnamese belief of ancestor worship, spirits and the afterlife.
  10. RED FOX SOUNDSWhat did the fox say? Something I don’t want to hear in the middle of the night.
