Nature Compensates

The doctor was explaining to O’Malley how nature reacted when certain disabilities happen to people.
“For example,” he said, “if a person goes blind, he will probably develop keener senses, like hearing, and touch. If he is stone deaf, he will develop other senses, perhaps a better sense of smell.”
“Ah, I see what you mean,” said O’Malley. “In fact I’ve noticed that myself. Like for instance, if a bloke has one short leg, then the other one is always longer.”
