More on trading legs...

Did you know that there are people who actually want to be paralyzed?

Copied and pasted from http://transabled.org/
Sean:
Sean is transabled. His body image is that of an L2 paraplegic. He has been living pretty much 100% of his public life from a wheelchair for the last decade, but hasn't found peace of mind (and is unlikely to until he does become a para).

Claire:
I am a wife and mother who has had BIID all my life. Since my earliest memories I have had a deep desire to be a paraplegic. For over 30 years I kept this a closely held secret until one day I just could not take it anymore. Now, I am telling all of you my story, because I know that somewhere there is another wife and mother who is confused about her strange desires and needs to know she is not alone.

Strange, huh? I'd be willing to trade legs and spinal cords
with Sean or Claire.

Or maybe I'll just steal Wallace's trousers.
