And us grown ups will be playing with this Virtual cable.

That would not surprise me at all! Its quite scary when you think how much things have changed since when you were young. Z is more knowledgeable about some things than me! Nothing seems to be a treat anymore. Its all high tech and greed.

That cable is bizarre!!
And so are the glasses... but I guess that's what people thought about computers at one point in time...

LOL I think sadder is parents must be pretty ok with it. My oldest is 14 and you wouldn't believe what they try to teach IN CLASS about sex at his age. Thankfully we were able to opt out of all that in the great state of Missouri. Still, I've seen *kids'* books in the library with cartoons that talk about why Mommy falls down and talks funny... then she went away to feel better and now she doesn't drink... Yikes!

Ha ha! My ex-husband is a tattoo artist, and he got me into body piercing back in the day. I've actually done several of those piercings (not for glasses, but that same piercing). I can't say how the piercing would hold the weight of a pair of specs, or if the pressure would even be comfortable- but I guess it would solve the problem of ever sitting on your glasses! Well, at least your own glasses... :)

::: shutters to think :::

Those glasses just freak me out. I think of them being pulled off by accident. yikes.

Go for the IntraLasik.

Ewwww...

My first thought is what happens when playing sports and someone runs into you, bending the implant.

Straightening it out would be so much fun!

Well, at least that might make it easier for me to keep track of my glasses. Damn, do they give me the willies to look at though!

I can't even imagine what we'll be dealing with in the future- look at the older people now, who have lived through lives with no TV, and now have the internet (to give one example). The rate of change just keeps getting faster and faster as technology knowledge seems to grow exponentially.

laughingwolf said...

that's disgusting! as if kids needed more potentially harmful things implanted in their faces! grrrrr

Rhonda said...

These took me by surprise for a second!
whoa....

Have a terrific day!

Jennifer said...

I especially like the first two pictures....all of this is sad but true.

owowowowowow, i can't imagine being pierced like that!

There's nothing like fishing for future possibilities. Prognostication, not mastication.

Beau McClelland said...

What the heck is up with those things?

Some things I will never understand...

leslie said...

Eewww...just the thought gives me the willies. The specs would have to be made of something extremely light-weight. Oh, just thought of rolling over in bed with that embedded in me - OUCH!

Charles Gramlich said...

Kinda bizarre, but cool.

Ian Lidster said...

The glasses are creepy. Oh, and I tagged you, dear. Please check my blog.

FXSmom said...

I saw the news stories on those pierced eye glasses last year. I can't believe anyone would be that dumb. Owee!!

J said...

That pair doesn't look very comfy. Maybe there's a cool element there for the edgy-cool sort of person... This All-American, soccer-mom type just missed the "pierced" option. Am going to pick up a pair of traditional driving glasses soon.

I wear 3-D glasses when I watch porn.

I consider this "laying virtual cable."

...which would get messy in the car, I assume.

Chris H said...

Ummm, only got two words about those 'glasses'.... stuff that!

Real Live Lesbian said...

The Virtual Cable is just cool...follow the little red string!

The glasses...just odd.

katy said...

Yep I want to use the Virtual Cable, yep I do not even want to think about the glasses!!!!!!!!

Preposterous Ponderings said...

Those glasses would make me go cross-eyed!

Cait O'Connor said...

Don't fancy the glasses, the cable is amazing isn't it?

nancygrayce said...

Oh, great! I hope my son doesn't see those or he'll have to have his glasses pierced on!

Celticspirit said...

Jeeze Dr. Suess and Sex books. That would be crazy. Those glasses look very painful.

Rising Rainbow said...

As someone who wears glasses, all I can say is OouuuuuUCH!!!!!!!

CrackerLilo said...

Do you know how many times I've had to pass a needle through a match and re-pierce my ears and nostril, or have my beloved wife do it, because I heal up so damn fast (which I know is really a good thing)? Lots, that's how many. I think I'll pass on this.

Kids' books are hilarious, though.

Doc said...

Oh good Lord I hope not... the piercings are bad enough but Dora the Explorer doesn't know who the baby Daddy is? you have to be kidding me ;-)

Marla said...

That is just creepy. Took me a second to even see what was wrong with the books! Wake up Marla!

Flea said...

Contacts people! Hello!

Jayne said...

Those specs put paid to the "but you'll only need them for reading in class" line parents trot out!

Just read your Lest We Forget post - the tales I could tell you from a small country town in Australia !!!

Frances said...

Hello to you, and many thanks for again just shaking up our ordinary assumptions.

Also quite liked the moon blog. As someone who is in contact with lots of The Public daily, I am a vigilent watcher of the phases of the moon. But I can tell them without looking up a chart, just from the folks I encounter.

I trust a computer to drive my car like I trust a politician to tell me the truth. It may happen, but you'll crash in the end, no matter what. As for the glasses, sign me up!

DJ Kirkby said...

Those glasses...*shriek!*

Christy said...

I cannot look at this post without feeling intense pain in the bridge of my nose.

Rrramone said...

Wacky! And never mind about the autism question. Duh. I read your banner. Blessings to you, sounds like you are a terrific mom.
