Notes on life, art, photography and technology, by a Danish dropout bohemian.
"... that seems like a pretty crucial conjunction." -- The Emperor's New Groove
So evident, it's brilliant.Big BOUNCY rubbery one over here!(Although, to be frank, I'd much more need to have my hands free IN BED. blink-blink, nudge-nudge)
Yeah, sure Pascal. You'd look even sexier with one of those on your face. Expect to be very busy in bed thanks to that little baby.
blink-blink, nudge-nudge?I really am surprised. I believe it is wink-wink, as in "Erik's got a sketch...". But you may know something I don't. Indeed, you do know something I don't know, but I was referring to the sketch.
Have any of you Sex Therapists tried wearing one of these while actually "doing the deed"? You might capture some interesting expressions. On the other hand, does the world really need close-ups of your cross-eyed lover in a moment of ecstasy?-Ray.
Eolake, all we spectacle-wearers need now is to have the mask lenses ground to our prescription - and then we'd be able to see what the camera is 'seeing', if indeed cameras do 'see' at all....?Have you seen the price of prescription masks? You buy those, and you probably can't afford the air-ticket to the clear tropical waters to take the photographs.
Alex,Surely I must know SOME things you don't.But I was trying to refer to the sketch. Only saw it once in this undercultivated pit.Blink, wink... what, am I supposed to dot the eyes? One aye-aye or both, same difference. ;-P(Or is it :-P ? 8-P ? \;-) ? X-P ? Whatever.)
Rather than getting a prescription mask, just get laser eye surgery. Some people poo-poo it but I've personally only heard good things. But, hell, I mean if you're a big Kathy Griffin fan (and let's be honest, who isn't?) then you might listen to her about the evil dangers of it.
I've heard nothing but good things about laser correction. There used to be limits as to what they could fix, they couldn't fix everything. That may have changed now.Then, do it once, wait 10 years and do it again. I'm rapidly coming up on the time when my focus will change again during late middle age. I'd need a tune up.Then add to that the insistence on not knocking you out for the procedure. Some people hate spiders, some hate slugs, some of us happen to be squeamish when it comes to eyes. The idea of having to watch someone take a scalpel to your eye (I hear even blade-less Lasik needs scalpel work too).Sorry, I'd love to pay for an operation which costs 10 pairs of glasses, but a) too squeamish, b) can't afford that right now.
Interesting thing, you can't be a military pilot if you've had any vision correction done. They supposedly worry about how the eye would be under the g-forces or something, but I bet really it's just because there's no shortage of quality applicants with perfect vision already. They can afford to be selective.
I don't mind glasses. Not only do you get to pick your style, but they bring some welcome daily protection.Used to be, glasses WERE made of glass, and therefore a liability. ("You wouldn't hit a man with glasses, Doc, would ya?")Today with organic lenses, they have become the opposite. I've lost count of the times some dust/sand was prevented from giving me a very unpleasant experience because I'm constantly wearing something in front of my eyes.Having to clean them regularly (the glasses, I mean!) is a small price for the service.My father once had to rush to the ophtalmologist because he had been doing house repairs without protection. This never would've happened to me!Plus, I know from my studies that no surgery is 100% risk-free. Unlike wearing specs in 2008.
"I've lost count of the times some dust/sand was prevented from giving me a very unpleasant experience because I'm constantly wearing something in front of my eyes."Ah, yet another advantage to living in a Northern climate.
Ah, yet another advantage to living in a Northern climate.Well said! I also like not having to deal with any poisonous snakes or spiders.Besides, they say you should be wearing sunglasses all the time anyway - help prevent getting cataracts down the road. And being of fair skin with blue eyes, it's probably a good idea for me anyway. Even in the winter, since you get a lot of really bright glare off snow.I should move to Florida.
Joe Dick rejoiced... "I also like not having to deal with any poisonous snakes or spiders."Yo, man! Do you mean you have no politicians, where you live?Groovy! I'm down wi'dat!"Besides, they say you should be wearing sunglasses all the time anyway"Not if you live a vampire's life, like me. Sunglasses are only for when you go out in the sun, after all.Bye now, time for my stroll. Now where did I put my moonglasses?"And being of fair skin with blue eyes"Den ah gots news for you, homie: your new photo is under-exposed.
Den ah gots news for you, homie: your new photo is under-exposed.I've darkened up a bit over the centuries.
Well, a few eons of exposing your face to the sun will eventually get you an intense tan...:-D
