    So when you get into a really minor fender bender, can you drop the prosthetics and flop onto the ground, rolling around and screaming with three limbs missing, 'cause I think that would be a really good/bad practical joke.

    Why do I kinda feel... disrespected for Kenny?? Lol I mean they may very well be close friends and Dustin is probably being extra for the filming purposes... but I'll never talk to a person with disability the way he's talking to Kenny at the beginning.. like he's some exhibit or something lol

    Once I saw the whole side of a truck go up and the floor slide out and and down and a guy drove a wheelchair onto it and it lifted it up with him in it.

    Destin, this video has really helped me focus my ambitions - I am currently a college student studying mechanical engineering and I knew I liked cars and wanted to do something with cars, but car design just seemed too boring, and I think that working to design systems for cars like this to assist the handicapped to be more independent and making cars more usable for a wider range of people is something that combines three of my favorite things: helping other people, heavy duty problem solving, as no two people have the exact same injury and different systems work better for different people, and my liking for cars and vehicle design (Plain old vehicle design seemed too boring for me, so designing these systems is really something that stuck out to me as super interesting) So thank you very much for sharing this, I saw this video a while ago, but hadn't thought much of it until a family friend who is losing his mobility had his car outfitted, and designing these systems is what I realized I wanted to do, so thank you.

    *This is where we punish cripples LOL!* You have no idea how uplifting it is to find out that political correctness hasn't reached everyone and made everybody insane and taken away their sense of humor!*
    Kenny's abilities and attitude are such that it makes me ashamed forever complaining about anything.

    Destin, I’ve recently found your channel and think you’re awesome. Then I saw this video and it totally shook my concept of who you are. Thank you. As a guy with a service related injury, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this video. We owe everything to the men and women that have gone and come back a different person, whether mentally or physically. For you, seemingly a rocket-quantum-mechanic-physicist to give this video a platform, you’re a much better person than I ever gave you credit for. Thank you for being humble and kind. God bless you and your family. Thank you for being who you are.

    That's right! People living with disabilities don't need our pity - just our support so we can get them on their feet again.

    So based off of what he said. It’s cheaper to make his truck look better than to replace a part that would make him feel bad about himself
