Beautiful, Dude, and Memes: spacehumans-inspace Humans are ADAPTABLE. As FUCK. Just because something happens to a limb, or part of the body, or a sense, it doesn't actually mean anything. Loose a limb? Put a new one on. Broken bone split open the skin? Pop it back into place and stitch it up. Paralyzed/ physically incapacitated? Wheelchair. Heart problems? Here's a new one. Or, even better, a ROBOT one. Blind? Well, who's to say we don't just outright develop echolocation? Humans are are amazing at adapting to situations that would totally ruin or kill any amount of other species Our adaptability and ingenuity in the application of tools and aides set us apart from other alien species, because who else, apart from stubborn, mad geniuses, would think 'right, something's broken beyond all repair? Or even gone completely? We can sort that out. "Right. So, you're telling me, that you lost BOTH of your legs in war, and instead of dying because you've lost half your body, you just... stuck new ones on?" "Basically, yeah. They're bio-mechanical and detachable. Wanna see?" "Wait, you're paralyzed from the waist down? But surely that's enough of an excuse to... stop working? Rest? You're stuck in that wheeled contraption! Isn't that horrendously awkward and tiring?" "Stuck? Dude, if I didn't have a wheelchair, THEN I'd be stuck. It can be awkward, sure, when places don't have ramps and wide enough doors and stuff, but apart from that, the chair lets me... be free again. It allows me to move and be a contributing human being again. Just, yknow. I've got wheels instead of legs." "You're blind? Wait, if you can't see, then why are you on this ship? Our visually impaired never pass even the first level of clearance Well, I'm hardly a navigator, am I? I'm a translator, I don't need to see. I can speak five earth languages and seven alien languages, and I can get around perfectlyI fine, thank you very much. Besides, that's why l've got my cane "But... you can't see? How can you read?" "Braille, mate. Besides, nobody writes anymore. It's all audio or that brain transmission telepathy shit anyway. "Your crewmate appears to act differently to most other humans I've encountered?" "Oh, Alec? He's lovely. He's got this thing called Aspergers, and whilst there's nothing technically wrong with him, it just means he... he processes things differently to someone without it. He doesn't understand jokes or sarcasm or anything, but he's really kind, and has an amazing green thumb. He tends to the onboard gardens." Right, so I've tried to make a little bit of disability positivity in this little drabble here. If anything I've written here upsets anyone, or appears as incorrect, I apologize sincerely! 2,474 notas positive-memes 99+ Humans are beautiful

Christmas, Dallas Cowboys, and Family: 14 YEARS MEMORIES FOREVER By Jason Witten Nearly 14 years ago to the day I arrived in Dallas. I was a new member of the Dallas Football Cowboys via the 69th pick in the 2003 NFL Draft was as green as any 20year old Tennessee boy could be, carrying the excitement of a little kid on Christmas Day. anxiously awaited the unique privilege given to me by Mr. Jerry Jones to participate in my first NFL mini-camp. This was an exciting time for I had dreamed about it my entire life. As my heart pounded, I got off the plane. grabbed my luggage and headed for the shuttle, eagerly waiting for the next morning to arrive and my journey as a Dallas Cowboy to begin! Little did I know, that in this short 5-mile ride, the most special relationship in my professional career was sitting next to me and about to begin. On the shuttle that day was a young bright-eyed QB from a small D1 AA school, undrafted, and this sort of Huck Finn way about him. There we were-just two kids on the bus, setting out to chase our dream The days following that now famous shuttle ride were not easy...mostly spent being on the receiving end of colorful language from legendary coach Bill P Truth be told, there were many days over the next 168 months of the relationship that were faced with extreme challenges from people inside and outside of our league. However, knowing what l know now, I must say that there is no one and I mean no one-l would have rather had next to me on this journey other than Tony Romo. After taking a few days to reflect and collect my thoughts,lthought it was fitting and felt a desire to share some thoughts about Tony and why will forever be grateful to A9 and his entire fami ly-Candice, Hawk and Rivers While history might remember 9 for the wins and losses, as a Houdini like playmaker, the epic 4th quarter comebacks, the lack of playoff wins, or the Brett Favre-esque no look passes, will always remember much more. No man can write his own history, and I tend to believe that over time the historians will remember Tony as one of the great signalcallers of his era. For me, I will remember that ultra-driven athlete who worked his tail off to learn how to perfect the proper throwing motion. The player who would stand at the chalk board tirelessly thinking through and dissecting how to block-up a brutal Jim Johnson blitz. A guy who would take command at the line of scrimmage with the authority of a S-star miitary general all while having the charisma of Joe Namath and the competitive fire of Michael Jordan. Tony would break down the nuances of a route tree as if he was the wide-out. Ultimately, he became a player that would set the highest standard for himself, because he knew it would create higher expectations for all of those around him. Players had to play better and coaches had to coach better. Most fondly, I will remember aman with a big heart, who loved to include others and took a great sense of pride in watching them enjoy the fruits of his labor. A man with an infectious personality and a contagious smile and wonderful sons-I know how proud they are proud of their pop It brings a smile to my face knowing that Tony wahave more time with his boys as they come of age. am certain their lives will be better for it, because, with 9 as your pilot, you feel as if you can conquer the world. I know I sure felt that way 9, I am forever grateful to have had you as my QB. Your God.given talent and ability has positively impacted not just my life, but my entire family. lam proud to call you my dear friend and brother for life. Thank you for always believing in me, and I wish you all the best in the next chapter-cheers!! Your Tight End. 82 realjasonwitten82 Jason Witten penned a heartfelt tribute for his captain, Tony Romo, as he embarks upon the next chapter of his career at CBS. (via @realjasonwitten82)
