Mar 21, 2010: ASL

ASL, American Sign Language, depicted here by JK Keller with book matches.

This was an art project, rather than a teaching aid, by a man with time, and 24 other letters, on his hands.

I am going to send this to someone. Nice find bruce.

Very nice.

But looks like you can't do the sign for 'fire' with a matchbook...oh the irony.

xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 21 01:46 AM

I believe its just the alphabet, isn't it?

bluecuracao  Sunday Mar 21 02:05 AM

Well, the video I saw on the interwebs shows it as a hand-waving type thing.

xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 21 04:51 AM

Yes, but what he did with the matchbooks is just the alphabet, there's much more to ASL.

yeah. Like this.

I remember a trick one could do with Pep Boys matchbooks. NSFW, though.



LittleWolf  Sunday Mar 21 12:50 PM

That last one I think is the hand sign for "Get out of the road"

xoxoxoBruce  Sunday Mar 21 02:29 PM

Welcome to the Cellar, LittleWolf.

Gravdigr  Sunday Mar 21 07:48 PM

Well, that's different.

Cicero  Monday Mar 22 12:51 AM

SPUCK  Monday Mar 22 05:35 AM
