    Oh, dear...

    No, as they cut down on the amount of oxygen reaching your eyes.

    Hi Kailash,

    Post a photo of yourself and I'll assess how you look without contacts.

    I'd rate this as a slightly bigger problem:

    Defintion opaque: blocking the passage of radiant energy and especially light

    Depends on the view, I guess. Every now and then I see stuff where being blind might have been preferable
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Only if you have a blind dog

    The view being from inside-out or outside-in?
    And does light necessarily = brightness?

    So... is it bright because we perceive it, or do we perceive it because we're bright?

    I was walking with a colleague in gateway at lunchtime, planning on having a quick bite to eat. While contemplating steers or debonairs, I happened to glance up at one of the many mezzanine levels that seem to attract people looking at those below. By chance, a rather large woman with a knee length skirt had her leg propped up against rail and I now feel that some opaque contact lenses would have been bloody handy at that moment.

    Cool!

    You remind me of something: I was sitting in a meeting one day with a senior programmer and one of the marketing ladies. We were sitting at a glass table. The programmer and the lady were sitting opposite one another and she had her feet sort of at an angle propped up on a chair in the programmer's line of sight. The meeting was quite disasterous because the senior programmer was totally unfocused for some reason unknown to me, (I was still young and $h1t scared of these seniors to even contemplate the obvious) Anyhow, mid meeting he says to this girl, "For F_Sake Jane, please put your feet on the floor, you're giving me Arc-Eyes...."

    ...of course from there on out everybody wanted to have a meeting with Jane...

    Sadly, some things seen cannot ever be unseen.
