I was reading the paper today - all right, all right, I was reading the MX today - and they had captioned one of their pictures with 'While not everyone needs glasses to see better, some think they need them to look better'.
Now I don't know about seeing better or looking better. But you definitely need glasses for one thing - and that's thinking better. It's a well-known fact, established by people who actually do wear glasses, that this wearing of glasses helps them to think. Just look at me - well, okay, maybe you can't see me, but that's all right, it's not because you don't have glasses on, it's because I'm on the net. But then, I don't have glasses on either. And is there any evidence of me thinking? Precious little.
Now just look at the Baron (again, don't worry if you can't see her, she's right over there). She has two pairs of glasses. AND she teaches at university. I think that just proves my point - or at least, that's what I would think if I had glasses, but I don't, so I didn't think it, it just seemed pretty obvious that that's what it was.
It also occurred to me as I read the MX that if Apple ever invented a pair of electronic glasses they would be called iGlasses. Now there's an original name.
Yes. Yes, that will have to do for now.
