What's a bushmeat orphan?

They kill the Gorilla for their wanted parts, like most endangered species, the rest is just meat. Can be used for food is why the term is partially used.

Btw some of the signs are misinterpreted. Squash meat/gorilla was actually "Hurt" Gorilla. There was no sign for Girl or Woman but "Person"(more of a slang sign for it though). Sharp noise was "Loud" Noise. Also they missed or just didn't want to interpret that he indicated he smelled something as well, my guess would be gunpowder.

You know sign language?

Zenai August 13 2011 9:21 PM EDT

Yes intimately, my wife is Deaf, Hard of Hearing to be politically correct. :-)

NSFC@W? Not Safe For Crying at Work?

Demigod August 13 2011 10:15 PM EDT

Not safe for children at work. Novice makes most of his money through child labor. He has empathy for gorillas, but he hates human children.

Really? That's the exact opposite of what I've heard from every one of my deaf friends and classmates at college. I go to RIT which is a sister college of NTID( National Technical Institute for the Deaf ), and all of them speak a lot of about how they are both "deaf" and "Deaf." They distinguish between the two kind of like the distinction between church and Church, deaf just being the fact they can't hear, but being "Deaf" meaning they are a part of the deaf culture. I only ever hear them use hard of hearing when referring to someone who can hear, but not very well.

Well this explains a lot:

Specifically, the dialect of sign language that he uses (lip means girl, etc). Also, I find it interesting that he learned it partially from another gorilla.

Yes really since my wife is still classified as Deaf/Hard of Hearing on government forms that is a community thing bro.

I go to RIT which is a sister college of NTID( National Technical Institute for the Deaf ), and all of them speak a lot of about how they are both "deaf" and "Deaf." They distinguish between the two kind of like the distinction between church and Church, deaf just being the fact they can't hear, but being "Deaf" meaning they are a part of the deaf culture.

You can be Deaf without being a part of the Community. The differences in Distinguishing between this and that happen by city, state, region and even coast. So some of the rules you have learned for where you are may not apply where I am and vice versa. The same can be said of Sign Language slang, it is no different than speech in that regard. If you go to New York slang words are different than in California.

I only ever hear them use hard of hearing when referring to someone who can hear, but not very well.

As far as the Deaf Community/Culture: She was not born deaf but rather contracted Spinal Meningitis as a child which in turn burned out her auditory centers due to the high fevers she had. Since 2 1/2 she has been without 85% of Hearing in her Left ear and 90% in her Right. Even with hearing aids my wife is unable to distinguish speech. She can only hear very high/low pitch sounds like a Fog Horn or Giant Bass Drum. This is why I said what I said Titan.

Ahh Initiated Signs do happen a lot, especially among family and partners.

Also, I find it interesting that he learned it partially from another gorilla.

I agree it is interesting.
