I’m Like that Kid with Down Syndrome
There are a couple of Italian medical types who studied the similarities between Asians and people with Down Syndrome. Observe their brilliance:
“Down persons during waiting periods, when they get tired of standing up straight, crouch, squatting down, reminding us of the ‘squatting’ position … They remain in this position for several minutes and only to rest themselves. This position is the same taken by the Vietnamese, the Thai, the Cambodian, the Chinese, while they are waiting at a bus stop, for instance, or while they are chatting.”
“The tendencies of Down subjects to carry out recreative-rehabilitative activities, such as embroidery, wicker-working, ceramics, book-binding, etc., that is renowned, remind [us of] the Chinese hand-crafts, which need a notable ability, such as Chinese vases, or the use of chopsticks employed for eating by Asiatic populations.”
After reading this, I rushed out to the nearest DMV to demand my handicap parking pass only to realize that I don’t have a car.
