Why do Geeks have Glasses?
 
I am so tired of the media view that all hackers, crackers are glass wearing geeks. I do not need local newspapers seinging virus makers or programmers as geeks. I have done model shoots but prefer not to be part of that trend. I am tired need 2hrs sleep goodnight. My body is failing me

I've cleaned off my glasses here, but I'm still having trouble with seinging. :D

I've always wondered. What if you really need the glasses to see at all and you don't know where they are? How do you find them? I'm not making fun, I really don't know, seriously

I wear glasses and I cant believe that fun is being made of someone with a seeing affliction.
Seeing afflictions are very common in the world today and making fun of people is offensive and doesnt help us at all. My glasses are almost 3/4 of an inch thick and I can only wear them for about 6 hours then my neck begins to hurt from the weight. Last year I had to have back surgery to prop up my neck so my glasses would stop sliding off due to my hump back.
Please think before posting such offensive material. Thank you.

You stumble around like a doofus for quite awhile, until you happen upon the missing spectacles (or until you remember that you have a spare pair in your dresser drawer)

Are you some kind of sicko?? you think its funny invoking a christian right wing assault on us defenseless muslums??

SciYro 05-13-2004 01:58 AM

i have no clue what your talking about BajaNick, and who the hell said i was christian?

schatoor 05-13-2004 03:10 AM

BajaNick, what the f*** are you talking about? Remember that muslims as well as Christians regularly come to this board so mind what you post.

pepsi 05-13-2004 12:57 PM

what do glasses have to do with muslims and christians

witeshark 05-13-2004 01:15 PM

The Muslim remark and a few others were just flame bait :rolleyes:

Right they are. Before this escalates, everyone please ignore remarks by BajaNick. Please do not feed the trolls.
@BajaNick: please don't pull stunts like that. If you *have* to play agent provocateur at least respect other people's threads: start your own one. Maybe also next time put some more effort into it ;-p

at lot of peeps/geeks who don`t need glasses wear glasses to look more intellectual....so maybe being intellectual is a form of geekiness.....or maybe its the non glasses wearers that are jealous...who knows!?
+ u never get smacked in the face when u r wearing glasses lol!

My eyes are still quiet sharp, but get tired quickly, as I am on a old teli like monitor 10 hrs a day and not a LCD monitor. But touch wood I won't need glasses. Does anyone know the name of these old monitors? What makes someone look more intelligent, glasses or beards?
