Is Rule 11 the new Rule 6?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

There is no Rule 6. If you need further clarification, please re-read this message. Quietly.

Welcome to the club foureyes.

I was going to suggest opening a night-life venue called Club Foureyes, with membership limited to spectacle wearers, but then it struck me that it might attract all the least attractive people, on the principle that it was the place they were most likely to get lucky...

Been wearing specs since I was 7, and boy do you then find out how cruel kids can be  :-\

People with "normal" eyesight who look through my my specs suffer a slight hallucinogenic experience I'm told because the lens are that thick  ;)

I got my first pair at about that age.
I lost count of how many pairs I broke over the years.
People say to me "haven't you ever thought about contact lenses?" and the answer is no.
I've been wearing glasses for 43 years and i'm used to it.  Plus I don't like the thought of putting things in my eyes.

Glad to say that's changed Chris, my two have had glasses since they were 4.  Combination of more kids are given them at a younger age, repairs are mostly free (lost track of how many trips we've had to Boots) so no sticking plasters and a good range of frames to choose in kid friendly schemes.  One of them had a patch for a while, we were nervous to what other kids might say or do but they thought they were cool as they had patterns on. :lol:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Same here re contacts - I don't like the idea of things in my eye, plus the unbelievable amount of buggering about I've seen contact wearers go through with them puts me right off.

Really glad to hear that mate  :thumbsup:

Same here. An optician once told me, admittedly a fair while ago that 90% of men who try contacts give up, whereas 95% of women persevere. Read into that what you will.

My ex had some of the first "soft" contacts, which had to be sterilised every night. They had there only mini steriliser, took about 30 mins, which was fine unless you were on a caravan site where the only plugs were in the men's toilets/shower block. Every night for 2 weeks you'd find me in there holding the two wires of the steriliser into the two pin shaver socket  :banghead: Young love is  such a wonderfull thing  ;)
