all of you are asshats. you aren't disassembling the story as it unfolds. you fall because you're up high.. it can happen. the eye patch could either be for training separate sides of the brain, or because of unspoken issues in the recovery. whomever spoke of sympathy needs to fall. its a beautiful an thought provoking story. anyone here who is speaking too fast needs to slow down just as this man was forced to do. -keep your head on right.
