H-m-m-m...I'm one of five children (all hearing) born to deaf adults. Not sure what you're trying to say here...this statement seems weird to me. Do you dislike the crippled, the blind? Or is it because they're just "different"?

My father was a college educated man. Very cool guy...bought us our first record player and Beatles records. He also bought albums for us -- narrated stories (classics) i.e. Alice in Wonderland, etc.

I was confused by his statement too. :? I tend to ignore most babbling on these forums now, but I would be interested to see what he as to say.

He speaks incredibly loud and basically stands on top of me when he has a question.

Is it true that people missing a sense have higher sensativity in the remaining ones? I've been meaning to write into Mythbusters about that one.

I assume that there's a fair amount of research that has already been conducted to examine this. I did a quick google scholar search using neuroplasticity and deaf as key words and came up with quite a few papers, including a short review paper that looks at published research comparing deaf participants to normal participants.

Just a quick look through the paper shows that the results are mixed. In summary, there appears to be no difference between deaf and normal participants on sensory measures. Deaf and normal participants are about the same on attentional tasks that require attention to be focus in the center of the visual field. Deaf participants perform better than normal participants in tasks that require periphery attention.

Here's a link to the article if you're interested.

Nothing I've ever observed, cc. H-m-m-m...on second thought maybe vibrations. I remember my mom telling me that, one time, she and my dad went to a dinner club with a group of deaf friends. Beverly Hills in No. Kentucky (since burned down). Anyway...Liberace was playing (snorting chuckle) and he noticed the group of deaf people. He invited them all up on the stage so they could put their hands on his piano for awhile while he played. My mom asked me to describe music to her one time...how do you describe something like music with words? Music was a big part of our lives...strange to say having deaf parents. Thanks, dad. :D

Edit to add: Let me tell ya'...it ain't all fun having deaf parents. My dad had a 1964 pink Cadillac (damn thing looked like a pink Bat mobile now that I think back). It was fancy...electric windows and all. He rolled the electric window up while I had my head sticking out of the window. He couldn't hear me yelling....could have KILLED me. :D :wink: I was in the back seat behind my mom and I kept slapping her really hard on the back of her head. lol...my dad freaked-out when he saw what happened.

Commercials that play at twice the volume of the program you're watching. Can't stand that!
Wanda: I can't stand people. I hate them. Do you hate them?
Henry: No, but I seem to feel better when they're not around.

Classic rock and 80's songs being butchered into House music remixes. It's a horrible injustice to the legends, and should be addressed immediately.

Yeah, it sounds like two dudes double-upping on Yazoo in the alley back behind the Drafthouse.
