Lennox Niece A thought experiment I’ve done on occasion is where would I honestly be in the middle ages? Half deaf and half blind with poor vision and poor hearing in the good eye and ear they’re not even on the same side as each other lol (well I wouldn’t exist in the middle ages because before 1950-1960 they didn’t have a technology for me to even exist I was born at 6 1/2 months – that wasn’t possible) but let’s say it was possible and it was 1380 in Europe somewhere no access to glasses so no reading. Literacy would be kind of low anyhow in my class so without the distraction of reading, I would probably get into a lot of fist fights with people growing up if I had access to taverns, I would probably get drunk to dull the ADHD and get into bar fights and have to be dragged home i’ve never been much close to being that kind of person because I’ve had access to technology and learning to read and good education distractions are not always a bad thing if I was lucky, I might attach myself to a church and let them take care of me and I would do whatever they needed me to. That would probably be my best bet in a medieval life and here we are in 2022 and a good amount of us are able to talk about ideologies and other educated things damn we are lucky at least I know that I am. Stupid drunken bar fight I know I would be that type. And yet I’ve never been in a bar fight in my life I was able to avoid it and here I am having an impossible conversation instead
