Re: Oscar Pistorius – Can Emi into World Championship?

When does it stop being "fine for him to compete"? Easy, when it's no longer fair. Of course advances in prosthetic technology will eventually surpass natural human limits.

Re: Oscar Pistorius – Can Emi into World Championship?

I like how the protagonist portrays the illness, not extreme autism but not a mild case either For the last freakin time, autism is not an illness T_T The word "illness" implies it's something that can be cured.
