And they make you look stupid.

Sorry, Elysia, I had to :P

In my kitchen I have 15 glasses:
6 x 125ml tumblers
6 x 250ml larger glasses
2 x 250ml old jars that I now use as glasses

In my "bar" (well, on top of the fridge) I have 29 glasses:
4 x tall wine glasses
6 x cheaper wine glasses
6 x 375ml beer glasses
12 x shot glasses
1 x 1L beer "glass"

I went through the house and found a glass in my bathroom that has my toothpaste and toothbrush in it

This gives me a grand total of 45 glasses

Edit: I just looked in my cupboard. I don't have to count all those herb and spice glasses to I? Can I just call them vials instead?
Watching you rummage around your house looking for glasses, must have been... a spectacle.

3. So this is what the personality of programmers is like... Whoa.

Code:
```typedef enum mind {not_blown, blown};

int main(void) {

mind my_mind = blown;

return 0;
}```

4. I've been wearing glasses since I was 11...

5. How? I don't think the GBC was backlit, so there was no glare.

6. I wear glasses essentially just for work, although my doctor says I should wear them all the time. I say my doctor should wear glasses since he's not seeing me right if he thinks I would wear glasses all the time.

You see, by focusing on the display, which I usually held an arm's length or less away, my vision became more and more shortsighted. Right now, everything further than 2 inches away from my eyes gets blurry/unfocused.

That is true, but come on, glasses for health? I don't adding glasses could make your health better.
Contacts are nice because they don't show, but since they are directly attached to the eyes, they can become a potential health hazard. So if you absolutely must have something to correct your eye-sight and you cannot use contacts and cannot go through an operation, then I suppose that in that sense, glasses can help your health, but otherwise...

Regularly hearing horror stories about both contacts and LASIK like operations have made me much more comfortable about the idea of wearing glasses for my whole life.
I know that these represent a tiny fraction of the people using those...but the fact remains that they aren't very mature technologies.

Also, spectacles are good for protection against sudden dust/snow ..etc.

10. There are probably horror stories about people somehow breaking their glasses and getting glass fragments embedded in their body somewhere, too. If they're unlucky, it might just be the eyes.
Everything carries risk. Although I dunno how big the risk of that happening is compared to problems with these technologies...

11. Elysia's opinion doesn't matter.

Hmmm. Whiteflag's opinion doesn't matter.

13. Children, children.

Not everyone can wear contact lenses, and not every eye condition can be corrected by surgery or laser treatment. If such people have significantly impaired vision, and don't wear glasses, then IMHO they are dangerous to themselves, dangerous to others, and they look silly.

That said, I've known people who look very good in glasses (in fact, there is a certain sexy lady who comes to mind). Generally (once concerns like correcting vision and safety are addressed) picking glasses would normally involve similar processes to picking a fashion accessory (watch, jewelery, etc). Pick a style that suits the individual - compliments their facial structure, suits skin and hair colouring colour, is consistent with preferences in clothes, etc.

I am not saying that gameboy (or should I say pokemon?) is not a factor, but myopia is affected by the DNA too. If your roots had myopia, then probably you will have too, even if you never play gameboy.

Yes. The way I see it, myopia is a part of health. Not wearing the best available glasses (thus letting inside rays that can harm your eye's strength), will eventually decrease its strength.
Maybe if you think about sun glasses, you will get a better proof.

Sometimes writing just C code is okay too sometimes. Plus, I totally caught a bug in my code 'cause I didn't write it as,
Code:
`typedef enum mind { not_blown, blown } mind;`
I felt like such a return 1 statement after I caught that
