the super-able

Just a little thought: no doubt you’va all seen the film ‘unbreakable’ (rather crappy, innit?) which proposes that, if superheroes exist, so do their antithisis. I’ve been recently wondering about something similar with reference to the olympics. The gymnastics got me thinking – there are these athletes who can perform these superhuman feats, jumping and spinning through the air in unfathomable ways, and on the other hand, there’s me who tripped over his own feet, and chaps like my mates at school, who can barely control their bodies. I’m not aying that I necesarily envy the gymnast, But I just think it srange that they seem so opposite to people like me.
