No - a Bermuda Triangle board game?
Yeah youre trying to go from island to island with your fleet of ships(with magnets in them) then a big cloud store is moving around and may, may spin over the route your ships are on and hoover them up. It's very satisfying when it goes over you but for some reason your boat survived. Mostly they get attached to the cloud and you're down a ship.

Heh this reminds me of something hilarious back in 1999. My buddy and I were dropping off rent with the property manager in his office. Property manager has been in a wheel chair for as long as we have known him and all of the sudden he gets out of his fucking wheelchair to give us a receipt. My buddy and I stare at each other in slack-jawed amazement. Did we just see a miracle or is he a big phony?

I wasn't going to say this in response to the meme, because it was pretty funny, but...

I can walk a little. Maybe 30-40 feet without the use of my cane, maybe three or four times that with it. I've got cripple tags on my car, I use the handicap spaces. If I have to go farther than 100 feet or so... I have to use some kind of motorized scooter or my powered wheelchair. So when I'm grocery shopping, you'll see me driving around on one the store's scooters-- my chair doesn't accommodate a basket-- and if I have to get something off the top shelf, I will stand up to get it.

It hurts like hell, but it hurts less than asking a stranger for help.

Most people who use wheelchairs can stand up for a little bit at a time. Hell, FDR gave all of his campaign speeches and Presidential speeches standing at podium; you can even see that he's using the podium for support in photos and videos.

This. I assume at most of our age we actually know folks who are mobility limited but not 100% stuck in a wheelchair. My dad has a cane. He could walk a short distance without it but not across a parking lot. I mean I get the shock when you see someone in a wheelchair who you've never seen stand do it for the first time and the amusement of seeing a person in a wheelchair reach for alcohol. The immediate disconnect of the black and white you were expecting vs the actual greyness of life can catch you off guard. But I would hope I offer to help when my mind snaps back to reality and thinks that there's a lot more to why someone uses mobility aids then black and white can't stand.
Its just part of life.
