There is some truth to this for a few.

As with others with specific diminished capacity issues, there are mundane tasks that can be more difficult for certain subsets.

Special needs kids doing complex algebra...

An Eskimo raised in isolation in their native environment trying to climb a palm tree...

Blind people studying color cinematography....

TMAX riding a motorcycle...

But I am sure there are successful examples out there for each scenario listed (well, mostly).

Each and every one special in their own way... love em.

You obviously suck at riding if you haven't ridden in exotic places. Because miles=talent and knowledge.

This is not rocket science people lol. It was either slam on the brake, or ram someone. I took the less of the two, and once again entirely my fault lol.
