:lol: Ok, maybe it does, but most people aren't so blind they can't see their own glasses on the floor in front of them.

We could start a whole sub thread on 'It Always Happens in Scooby Doo'. :lol:

MOST? ummmmmmmmm...... If I lose my glasses while the children are not in the house..... I am lost. Finding my glasses is ONE of the main reasons I went from clear frames to black frames... so I could find them... and they are way cool.... but... I need to see to find my glasses. You have reading glasses huh Tony? Not all the time glasses....

No, I have all the time glasses and my eyesight is terrible without them, but I don't think I've ever lost them. But I usually know where I've left them, or I'm wearing them. :P

But my friends always assume that I'm blind withouth my glasses when I'm not. They keep holding their hands up and asking me 'how many fingers?'

And I can see them perfectly well.

I'm only minus 3/ minus 3.5 :(

My problem is that I really need bifocals but they don't seem to make any that work well enough with my work, using a laptop, second screen and reading paperwork without shaking my head so much I look demented. So I have two pairs, one for walking around, driving etc. and one for reading or other close up work. This does mean I can usually find one of them but wearing the wrong pair to do things is really strange and dangerous if I find myself driving in the reading glasses :shock:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Mad when I finally got my trifocals... I went through a really indepth analysis of what work I did and how I sat and where things where positioned... it is very individual. Mind you... Change your job and Arrghhh! It was a huge step to get them and took me an age to get used to.... but all okay finally. Your brain gets a "memory" (except my brain has no memory of where I LEFT them!)

My gf's mother even had FOUR lenses fitted to hers as she is VERY conscious of her hair and setting her hair!!! (elderly) so they took that into account.

When someone goes down an old, abandoned mine, they always find an oil lamp which always seems to have plenty of oil in it.

A single candle or a match is sufficient to light up a huge underground cavern.

I Love this tread!

Anyone complaining about how dull their life is will soon have that problem very much fixed.

EVERY tropical/desert island WILL have some kind of fresh water supply.

(sorry this gets WAY up my nose because I spent many years among the islands in the Whitsundays (100's) and there are only one or two that have water of ANY kind.

Oh and if they are running down the jetty at lifes peril... there is always the boat at the end that has a working outboard that starts first time or the keys are in the boat.
