    I want to ask you something, as you might know there's a image on people when someone talks about computer programmers that they are these people who wear glasses and so on so that's why I decided to post this poll.

    I only use a glass when I don't feel like drinking the beer out of the bottle.

    I wear glasses, although I am trying to get my parents to get me some contacts.
    What will people say if they hear that I'm a Jesus freak?
    What will people do if they find that it's true?
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak, there is no disguising the truth!

    I have to for reading. I read can without them, but my eyes get tired and I get a headache if I do it for too long or if I'm reading something off the monitor.

    But they are really nice frames, they suit my face well (sort of rectangular with slightly rounded corners). Whenever you go to buy new glasses, they always try to palm these horrid looking frames on you (like the kind the mission control guys in the movie Apollo 13 wore).

    You laugh at a Yoshi wearing glasses?

    Well my eyesight is fine.
    The trick is my bad posture which keeps my eyes at pretty much the ideal distance away from the moniter.

    I wear glasses; I find they narrow my perspective of the world but make me feel much safer.
    I was born; I shall die. Between those two events there is life. I don't know why, and I don't question it; I merely live.

    Nope, and the reason that alot of computer people wear glasses is because they look at a comp screen for so long. At least, that's my theory.

    What he said...

    and plus the fact that my eyesight has gotten progressively worse since I got my first computer 4 years ago.

    Stereotypes are inaccurate descriptions like that.

    You should definitely keep bugging your parents until they let you get the contact lenses. For me, at least, I can see better with soft-toric lenses; I hardly notice them at all after I put them in; I do not have to worry about them getting broken or falling off as I would with glasses; and I look much less "nerdy."

    Nice theory. I wear contacts (not glasses anymore) because of nearsightedness (no, I don't just think in the short term ). There might be some sort of correlation between probabibility of nearsightedness (a hereditary factor) and probability of having the intelligence and skills necessary to be a good programmer (again, some hereditary factors).
