    Impressive. People with his desire and drive always succeed no matter the challenge. Good for him.

    Good thing he wasn’t born without the “upper half” of his arm or else controlling his hand would be really difficult.

    Besides that though, great story. Makes everything you complain about daily seem even more insignicant – such as questioning the writing of a blogger.
