a FOAF is a blind triathlete, physicist PhD candidate. he's a really cool guy, as you might imagine. he doesn't have a service dog, though...
  7:10pm Danne D:

yay :)
Avatar 7:10pm Kimzilla and Emily:

@Chris, I would think getting a guide dog is such a personal preference, but boy Abbey's service dog's training was so impressive!
Avatar 7:11pm cosmic matrix:

sounds like an awesome show as usual! yaaay!
  7:12pm james:

of course!!!
Avatar 7:12pm TehBadDr:

there's a guide dog training school in a nearby town; i enjoy seeing the volunteers walking them around the streets, rewarding them for their good performance...
Avatar 7:13pm Kimzilla and Emily:

TehBadDr: exactly! we saw it in action. She's really pretty efficient, at it though!
Hey Spidermank--an excellent point.

@emily doesn't like my questionable humor.
Avatar 7:30pm emily:

I love questionable humor! I was just grumbling about Kim making fun of me. But I literally JUST got your joke--d'oh!
Avatar 7:32pm kimzilla:

"Let me count triathlon's here" is something you will never hear coming out of my mouth. Ever.
  7:32pm james f:

#humblebrag "lemme count triathlons here"

haha, she is great!!!
  7:33pm abbeytron:

I know, I'm a little crazy.
Avatar 7:35pm TehBadDr:

This is fascinating in that I lived in Manhattan for 5 year in the second half of the 80's. I couldn't imagine navigating that landscape and the places I went with a visual impairment.
  7:35pm bli-curious:

i find this show weirdly fasinating
  7:37pm james f:

check out that crossfade!!
Avatar 7:37pm kimzilla & emily:

Avatar 7:41pm TehBadDr:

Avatar 7:42pm emily:

NO!! Kim is trying to damage my image.
Avatar 7:42pm kimzilla:

She can be sooo dramatic.
Avatar 7:43pm TehBadDr:

Oh, I see. You ladies can work that out over some bevies.
Avatar 7:44pm emily:

Avatar 7:44pm emily:

Avatar 7:45pm TehBadDr:

She's become a hardened NYer, no longer trusting smart!
Avatar 7:46pm emily:

I know how she feels!
  7:46pm james f:

i'm totally getting pizza after the show now
Avatar 7:46pm emily:

james, right?? once the idea's in your head...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

At age three, my sister shot a roller bearing into her eye and barely sees with it. She has a Braille printer at home and translates things to Braille for the library.
Avatar 7:48pm TehBadDr:

@Ken. does she not have another eye without the roller bearing?
  7:49pm abbeytron:

@Ken : I bet she finds her work fullfilling. Braille is still totally relevant
Avatar 7:51pm TehBadDr:

This is again some very interesting material ladies. You are doing very well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Yes, her good eye is still working just fine. The Braille project is just to give back to the community.
Avatar 7:52pm kimzilla & emily:

@ Ken from HP: oh, wow--braille translation! very interesting!
@TehBadDr: thank you so much!! so happy to see you "regulars" on here every week!
  7:53pm Tommy Jack Haynes:

Avatar 7:54pm kimzilla & emily:

Avatar 7:56pm TehBadDr:
