the jokes aside. running with those legs is actually easier than regular running. which is why there was some initial controversy to his racing to begin with. Because those legs are designed to have optimal speed and fewer muscles mean there is less energy spent while running. basically turning you into a human kangaroo.

That and he was able to be in both the Olympics and the Special Olympics, which gives him nearly double the money and sponsership opportunities than any one athelete in either.

wait... so those legs are actually an improvement?
User avatar #38 to #24 - lapsushominum ONLINE (05/08/2013) [-]
In terms of speed, yes, but real legs are more maneuverable over a wider range of terrain, not to mention a lot easier to climb with.

So, yes, those legs are an improvement... if you're talking only about running mostly straight distances on a flat surface.

The friction is a real bitch, though
User avatar #100 to #11 - fuckingtrolls (05/08/2013) [-]
I think that's what those little spikes on the bottom of his prosthetics are for.

I'm talking about the friction between stumps of his legs and the razors.
User avatar #114 to #101 - fuckingtrolls (05/08/2013) [-]
Well they most likely have braces or padding in between his stumps and his prosthetics.
Kinda like shoes
I mean they were specifically designed to allow him to run and sprint at long distances and a ton of money probably went to it's design and mechanics so I think they woulda solved that before hand.

Here are the mechanics of his prosthetics.
#112 to #101 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
They've got some pretty comfy gel inserts in there. Probably more comfortable than actual knees.

It's a lot easier when you weigh about two legs less.
#102 to #31 - lamarisagoodname (05/08/2013) [-]
if you're using the muscle, it's not slowing you down

unless their prosthetics are hydraulic they only use their thighs to run, rather than the calves, toes, etc

I'm sorry, but who is she..?

Emi Ibarazaki from the popular teenage visuel novel Katawa Shoujo.

She has no real legs and runs a lot. Much like the man in the content.
User avatar #96 to #93 - goodeater (05/08/2013) [-]

No, it's just so sad that we'll never be with her again. That's what I'm feeling and I assume that everyone else commenting sad stuff on this thread feels about the same.

She got him socks for Christmas.

Huh. I was wrong.

Pistorius' lawyers say they plan to fight the charges against them but legal experts agree his case doesn't have a leg to stand on I'm sorry I had to
#80 - theoriginaltwat (05/08/2013) [-]
I don't know why their is such a big deal about this. He gets charged with murder, goes to prison for 20 years, come out and is made president of South Africa.

That's how it works there isn't it?

It's not fair, he had a leg up on the competition

First thing I thought of.

Also, what happened with Oscar Pistorius? I see stuff in the comments but I haven't been keeping up with news lately.

User avatar #110 to #108 - yusay ONLINE (05/08/2013) [-]
He killed his girlfriend. That's the joke.
User avatar #111 to #110 - zorororonoa (05/08/2013) [-]
Oh, i get it now.
#82 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
It isn't Oscar's fault, he can't see 2 feet in front of him.





I'll see myself out.
