While there are many problems associated with Dwarfism, midgets are not plagued by these problems. Midgets are just normal people whose height is stunted. In the case of dwarfs, the physical conditions affecting them are: malformed bones, nerve compression, joint disease, and disoriented growth of some organs.
Both midgets and dwarfs have to suffer the psychological or social problems associated with their condition. Social prejudice against their extreme height may reduce their social confidence and opportunites. Sometimes they're mocked and may suffer from low self esteem. Sometimes extreme shortness (height of less than 3 feet) may interfere with their day to day chores.
Australia is commonly thought of as the place where dwarf-tossing originated as a form of pub entertainment in the early 1980s.Laws may prohibit dwarf-tossing implicitly, but there are not explicit laws preventing a consenting dwarf from being 'tossed'.

People living in midge-infested regions can apparently build up immunity to the irritation caused by midge bites. So, generally, midges create the most nuisance for people who travel to an area where midges are present. For example, hunters, fishermen and golfers who travel to places in the United States where midges are common often report being under attack by large numbers of no-see-ums.
Midgetville is one of those places that people tell you they have been to, but cannot seem to remember exactly where it was. The tales often involve a late night ride many years ago with a friend of a friend who knew how to get there. The stories told of this magical land are all strikingly similar and describe a community where all of the houses have been scaled down to accommodate their diminutive dwellers. But not only are the homes small, but also the traffic signs and even the cars are said to be downsized!
Another aspect of these stories that seems to remain fairly constant is the fact that the occupants of Midgetville are usually very angry and hostile toward outsiders. This is undoubtedly because most places rumored to be Midgetville contain no midgets and the residents get very annoyed at the steady stream of late night gawkers who continually plague them year after year. There are seemingly credible people however, who will swear to us that they have seen and even spoken with the wee folk at one Midgetville or another, and that the legends are true, or at least were true at sometime in the past.
When I was a kid, we used to ride our bikes down from Cliffside Park to the Midgetville on River Road in Edgewater. We would knock on the doors of these midget-size houses and run away and hide, just so we could see the old midgets answer the door. Yes, there were midgets living there at one time. The stop signs were also nailed low. I have driven through there once or twice in recent years and a lot of the small houses have been replaced with newer, larger houses. The area is prime real estate.
We went up to a pick up truck to ask for directions. In the truck was a midget driver and a midget kid in the passenger seat. She would not give us directions. We then turned around and another car came up to us. This car was loaded with six midgets. We asked them for directions and the driver gave them to us but he looked really mad that we were there.
Located down a narrow dirt road leading through a pine forest, the Jefferson site seems like just the right setting for the enchanted land of Midgetville. The group of houses that we found there, about eight in all, were indeed quite small, much smaller in fact than the dwellings we had seen in any of the other so-called Midgetvilles we had visited. A few of the dwellings were no larger than the prefabricated back yard sheds that you find at Home Depot. But these were actual houses and cozy little cottages at that, some decorated with flower boxes and Pennsylvania Dutch style ornamentation. For an average sized adult these homes would undoubtedly seem pretty claustrophobic. They would only be able to stand upright at the very center of the house, where the pitched roof was highest, and they would definitely have to stoop down to look out a window or get through a doorway. We knocked on the little doors, and peeked through the tiny windows, but unfortunately there were no residents, midget or otherwise, to be found anywhere. So off we went to look for clues elsewhere about this curious community in the forest.
Is it merely a coincidence that a cluster of extremely small cottages is located so close to the estate where a circus that employed many little people performers once wintered? Or is it possible that Alfred T. Ringling had these homes custom built to make his tinier attractions more comfortable? Compared to the massive stone buildings constructed to house his ponderous pachyderms, the houses of Midgetville would seem a small price to pay.
Entering the house, the father searched for his wife and two children, and, upon finding them, shot them each with a single bullet. He dragged their lifeless bodies up the stairs, one by one, until he had them all lined up in front of a closet door on the second floor. He shoved each member of his family into the closet, sealed it shut, and retreated to the master bedroom where he shot himself.
In another, the father was just as enraged, but instead of shooting his family, he took a much more personal method of assault. Snagging a knife from the kitchen, he approached his wife and his two children, only to grab at their necks and slit their throats. From there, he took hold of their limbs and brought them each up to the second floor into the closet. A few minutes later, clearly not in his right mind, the father retrieved his wife and children and dressed them in fresh, clean clothes. Then, he put them back in the closet, their faces forever frozen in shocked terror, and locked them inside. Like in the first variation of the tale, the father then committed suicide.

Nothing wrong with an MG! As they are older cars, things will go wrong with them. Once you have repaired through the old stuff they seem to hit a bit of a golden age where you get a reliable car! I have gone through this with most of the cars listed abouve (Not the Suzuki Cappuccino or Honda Beat). Had a 1960 Bugeye that was a bit of a pain until I did Electronic ignition, rebuilt brakes and one brake light issue, I got 3 years and 27,000 miles of fun! Spitfire was fun but it was a 1970 and those orphan parts sucked. The Datsun roadster, I had 3! Little friggin' bricks that were as fun as anything I have ever owned. My Fiats ran well, just had stuff falling off all the time. Mercury Capri is still an unknown as mine was purchased with a blown out turbo, but it is a 1.6 Miata motor!
The Mayan Legend of the Alux (aloosh). The world is full of myths and legends and many countries have an ongoing belief in a little person that causes mayhem and mischief wherever it goes. Mexico is no exception to that rule. 781b155fdc
