Warning: you will continue to cry on subsequent viewings as well.
The only thing – THE ONLY THING – to have ever made me cry on the internet was one of those godforsaken troops coming home videos. This guy interrupted his son’s kindergarten class. *sniff* and when the kid saw his dad, he just lost it and ran and started bawling into his dads shoulder. *sob* On no, I gone too far. I can’t stop tearing up!
For me it was that Story Corps story Danny and Annie. There is no defence against old people in love.
She’s going to love being able to hear until someone plays her some Skrillex, then this whole cookie is going to crumble.
I just now learned that people are starting to refer to music in the vain of Skrillex as ‘complextro’. Ugh.
Remember when people used to like music?
Serious question, how is she able to speak so well?
related question: If you had been deaf, how would you understand what words meant, since you had never heard them spoken before? Do you think there is someone off screen signing? Or do you think she is more lip reading? Or is it somehow inherent?
This video is posted over on io9, and some of the commenters over there do a good job offering explanations.
There’s some good discussion about this question here as well: https://plus.google.com/101629211371073711149/posts/GNS9YkQ5xEz
The term ‘deaf’ covers a wide range of hearing impairments – it doesn’t refer only to complete and total silence. The woman who posted the video added in the comments that she’s worn hearing aids since she was 2 years old, but that they can only do so much, and she has always depended heavily on lip-reading.
My guess is that she’s overwhelmed by how CLEAR everything is after a lifetime of struggling to decipher AM-radio static.
Very Very Emotional seeing this!
And Her Arm is so so beautifully done!
So Happy for this lovely gal!

I know, that is some beautiful ink on her arm. Too bad it’s going to cost her more to get that crap removed than it did to restore her hearing…
my sick mind expected her to look at that mashed up fuck blob of an arm and be all like,”What the fuck is this?!!!”
Then I realized that she was deaf and not blind.
She will at some point look at her boyfriend and say, ” THIS? THIS is what you’ve been listening to? Ah, fuck. Look at My Fucking Arm! Fuck you! At least I didn’t get that fucking Papa Roach Tat you were pushing for! Ah, Fuck my life. I’m outa here.”
Yes. Unleash your anger, your fear, that sensation that gnaws at the back of you mind that keeps you up at night thinking, “I hope I die soon, I don’t want to have to explain what the fuck that shit on my (bicep, lower back, rib-cage, hand, leg, face, ass, wrist, ankle, foot, pubic area, where the fuck ever) to my grandchildren and/or robot maid.
Preach it, “guilty bob” I agree 100%, tats are gross
Just for the record:
1. My very own GIF? SQUEEEEE!!!!
2. I am super happy for this woman.
3. Thinking intelligent people ALWAYS regret fucking up their skin with stupid bullshit in their 20′s.
Also, you know I love you guys, right?
Monsters are the best.
I don’t regret any of the tattoos I got in my 20s, they’re just tattoos. I’m intelligent enough to know that it’s just skin and who cares, and did I mention I should probably get more of them, because honestly, who cares?
It sounds like you totes regret your tattoos though!
I don’t have any actually for three simple reasons:
1. I am not a member of any Special Operations Forces group.
2. I have never successfully defended my country from foreign invasion forces.
3. I don’t hate my mom.
Ah yes, the rules of tattoos, from “The big book of rules of tattoos” – by Sgt. Dick McGoo
Weird though, I don’t hate my mom, and have never been in the army, yet I still have tattoos. Well, What the!
Indigenous people all hate their momz though. Science fact!
Oh, are you aboriginal?
My bad bro.
Also, these aren’t “Rules” they are just the reason I don’t have tats (Dick McGoo? Was it hard to get your mom to sign the release form to get those tats?).
BOOOO! Boo that man!
Yes, that’s it. Feel the hate. And also, Feel the hat.
Feel the hate is a Bill Hicksism, FYI so give credit where credit is due, bro
Actually, I was quoting Emperor Palpatine, but I will gladly give Bill Hicks all of the props ever.
fucking spell check
Seriously? THREE GIFs? Because I pointed out that, unless this woman is Terminal White Trash, she will someday regret fucking her skin up like that?

You folks need a nap.
Sir: It is not the sentiment. It is the rudeness and inappropriateness.
We don’t like trolls, they bore us. Be along your merry way, please.
I would like to apologize to everyone I have offended.
If it seems as though I am not marching in lock-step with you in my comments, it is only because I feel compelled to comment when my opinion differs with the majority.
99% of the time I think to myself, “Ah, what a clever chap (or Lorrie), this is why I keep coming back here. These people are clever and amusing.”
If my expressing an opinion that runs counter to the prevailing winds is “trolling” well, then, I guess I have been badly mistaken about this site.
Also, jeez, lighten up about the skin art thing.
Her arm is beautiful, it really is. Her arm is also only about 20-25 years old. Do any of you have any idea how many times she will have to have her entire arm redone in her lifetime?
I’m with guiltybob on the no tattoo thing, I think he’s right
that lady has the awesomest job in the world probably.
You would think, right?
After a while though, you would get tired of hearing dipshits say things like, “That’s what my voice sounds like? Fuck.” and “Why the fuck did I get these tattoos?”.
IT ATED MY COMMENTS TWICE
Watching people cry tears of happiness always gets me.
does watching fake things get you faked?
FAKE!!! Snopes already exposed this one, its a hoax
Can you send the link to the article on Snopes? I cannot find it.
HA HA HAHA idiot!!!!!
I am curious if she’s figured out how to tune out background noise as the other links mention that she’s been wearing implants her whole life. There was a very interesting This American Life segment that explained how people with implants hear EVERYTHING at the same level. I also know this through that ABC Family show, Separated at Birth.
Oh, so she could hear her mom crying when she saw what her daughter did to her precious, perfect skin.
What is going on with you, guiltyb0b?
he don’t like tattoos and he’s correct in that regard
Um, I think I might have accidentally discovered the reason why people troll comment boards.
Also, I need a nap.
All the time.
you need a muzzle all the time
That this American Life segment is fascinating! Because it does exactly the opposite as this video: he gets the implant, and suddenly he experiences sound for the first time! And then the novelty wore off, and then all the sound just annoying. He’s like “it got old”. The link is here: link.
Yeah what exactly are you guilty about?
Having an opinion.
It’s so disappointing when a Videogum comments section ends up looking like a comment section from the rest of the Internet.
I know, and I’m sorry. Really.
Not sorry enough to stop posting, obviously.
