Maybe Daredevil does exist...
Luke sent me the link to the above video which you should watch but if you didn't it is about a blind kid that has learned how to use echolocation to some extraordinary results. This kid is crazy, he can play video games, rollerblade, have pillow fights, and kick your ass in foosball but his eyes were surgically removed when he was 2 years old. This is a great story about triumph over adversity and a true testament to his mother's ability to raise a disabled child to be better functioning than I am.
But what did I take from this video? Aquanetta, his mother's name is Aquanetta, and I can't get over that. It got me thinking, why would a person name their child Aquanetta? Did her mother own a hair salon? Is it an old family name passed down from generation to generation? These are the questions that plague me.
