Amazing what can be accomplished! I was a little worried when he used the angle grinder.

Remind me not to complain anymore…about anything.

A guy in a Moroccan market (“medina”) turned a key fob for me, via lathe, using just his feet and toes. He had no arms.

So amazing … what you CAN do, when you try hard not to focus on what you cannot do
