The Fast and Furious movie has become a franchise. We are now at number 5. I couldn’t help but think what would be the deaf culture equivalent and this is what I came up with. Instead of racing cars for “pinks”, a deaf person would fingerspell furiously for one. I am sure you have met the Vin Diesel and Paul Walker of fingerspelling. Their hands fly 100 mph and yet you still somehow catch every single letter. How do they manage to do that with so much style and grace? It’s a talent — just like racing cars and having all the right moves.
