    Perhaps if we could find a way to place the song directly in their brain :D Not sure how they'd do that though...

    That said, Beethovan or one of the composers was known to have been deaf. Even more interesting is how they managed to make music, when they couldn't hear what they were composing...

    Anyhow perris, good luck with your classes and all...

    I got one for you all...

    My wife is an assistant dance instructor for her friends dance studio. Every year she holds an extra recital by none other than...the students of the Scranton State School for the Deaf...and occasionally a few of the students perform at the local studio's recital.

    Yep, deaf and hard-of-hearing kids dancing to music. I am impressed as hell every year. Some can feel the beat of the music, others dance to counts and only need a nod from the instructor as to when to begin.

    I'm trying to make the time to take ASL classes starting this spring.

    I don't know about the coeds and your old behind there dude, but kudos to you for taking the class! Very cool!

    I tried to rep you for it but it wouldn't let me!

    Rep has to be spread around before you can give it to someone who you have repped before, so the system doesn't get abused. Knowing you hang out in Hard Talk, that is probably somewhere you might have given it to Perris at one point, before giving it to others. If you want to give rep to Perris, you should give it to some other people first.

    Great to hear your wife does things like that, people helping those less fortunate is always a good thing :)

    I coach basketball for a young boys league *save the jokes*

    I know how crazy parents can get. Sometimes I have to remind them it's for the enjoyment of the kids, not bragging rights of the parents.

    High school cheerleaders (of the female gender) are even better. Try one of them.

    whoops.

    Well, as to deaf people, when the frequency is low enough, it can tend to be felt... I wouldn't doubt this in the least. Heck, when I used to live on campus, the people down the hall in the dorms played their fricken rap so loud, and with so much base, that if you put an object on the floor in front of their door (and even a ways away from it), you could litterally see the object move accross the floor, in sink with their drum beat itself. :eek: There have been experiments with sound waves, and the opera singer who could shatter a wine class when hitting that certain note is just the beginning.

    Given that many people in some of the evening classes I've taken before have been retirees and the like, there really isn't a matter of it being too late to return. I've seen people, heck still in high school sit in some of my college classes. And then I've seen some people in their 70s sit in some other classes as well. It's not just the young one's who go back to school anymore...

    I don't know why people are surprised,quite obvious really.Just cause they can't hear doesn't mean they can't feel.There's many musicians out there who can't hear what they play but can feel it and they are really good :D
