— possibly a magic device for the deaf

A high tech company has come up with a device,
connected to the iPhone. The device (called a
microphone) would listen for doorbells, kitchen
timers, fire alarms, door knocks, etc and then
transmit the sounds to the iPhone. A picture
is at:

— strange response from a fake-deaf actress

A hearing actress, who once played a fake-deaf
role, said:

Once I played a deaf character, so the only means of
expression I had were my eyes

 

This is strange, because deaf people use their
hands for signing and for geaturing, and sometimes
use body language, and often make facial
expressions!

 

— deaf possibly making the World Guinness Book

A deaf woman may possibly make the World Guinness
Book but it is a joke, not an accomplishment.
Chiedza Hukuimwe, a Miss Deaf Zimbabwe
winner, was given the first place cash
prize of just $8.50. It would be the record
for the lowest grand prize in history of
pageants!
