I'm curious, what does that have to do with being old?

It was the style at the time.

You couldn't get any white onions, on account of the war.

It's one of those simpsons references where if you watch the simpsons you instantly get it but if not then it doesn't make sense.

I was going to say Helen Keller would object, if she she could see this. Or hear it. Or wasn't dead.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

Helen Keller would have been immune to flash bangs.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

It definitely used to be her. I'm old too.

Around my house we talk WAY more about Ms. Keller.

Helen Keller would like to have a word. She can't, but she'd like to.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

She could speak but it wasn't very clear most of the time and she could also sign. So given this, she could totally communicate.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

Hard to do that when you're dead though

by Anonymous 5 months ago

There's videos of her and there are other deaf-blind people too so you could literally just go to any one of them to get the same treatment.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

i met someone in vrchat who is deaf and she could speak also I just have to listen hard and occasionally sign "again". I can't imagine trying to learn how to speak when you cant hear.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

She could, but the world would probably be labbauuba!

by Anonymous 5 months ago

I would say Helen Keller is far less well known worldwide than Stevie Wonder. If it wasn't for American TV I wouldn't have heard of her.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

I don't see how that's true

by Anonymous 5 months ago

Neither does he.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

What about Ray Charles

by Anonymous 5 months ago

It used to be Helen Keller, then it was Ray Charles, now it's Stevie Wonder: the evolution of the collective definitive blind archetype.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

Its Ray Charles. Jamie Foxx played him. Its clearly Ray Charles.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

Helen Keller is relevant. Stevie was famous 80 years ago.

Helen Keller for sure come on now it's the ultimate fps roast when someone is blind

My mom used to tell me I looked like Ray Charles dressed me when I picked my own clothes as a kid.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

Stevie is the most used example for someone who pretends to be blind but can actually see. (I didn't say I think so)

Depends on your country. In France it's definitely Gilbert Montagné which nobody knows except us and some French speaker. But yeah it's true that he's one of the most famous blind person. I think 2 other competitors could be Beethoven and Ray Charles

Beethoven wasn't blind. He lost his hearing late in life, but never lost his eyesight.
