i don't want either of those items and yet, some part of me wants into that bathing suit.

The eyeglasses, assuming I don't need to actually spend $500 on them. No one here wants to see me in that bathing suit.

These Boba Fett ones aren't bad.

I mean, if we're just throwing out choices.

I'm having trouble believing that's a woman in that women's bathing suit.
 
2012-10-09 10:52:34 PM
I'd have to go with the glasses, since I'm too chunky to look good in a one-piece like that.

also, I'm a guy.

Well, yeah, sure, we would all like some part of ourselves into that bathing suit, but only if we get to specify which part. If I put my stomach and ass in the swimsuit, that wouldn't be "Han Solo," that would be "Han and a Great Big Crowd Of All His Friends and Relatives."

I think I'd actually wear the Vader, Luke, and Boba Fett glasses. In sunglasses form, they're still pretty decent looking, which is good, because I'd feel like an asshole wearing ones with fake lenses.

I'll say it... The glasses seem ok. Frames cost too much but I'd wear em.

Any bathing suit I got into would automatically become a Jabba the Hutt suit.

Not me. Whenever I go swimming, I always shout: "Your friends have failed. Now witness the firepower of this fully ARMED and OPERATIONAL bathing suit!"

I really like the Rebel pilot ones, the Boba Fett ones are cool too, but asymmetrical eyeware would aggravate my OCD.

I like the R2D2 frames. I don't 500 dollar like them, but I would wear them for a normal price.

You must like expensive frames. I usually get the 250-300 dollar ones myself.

Nah I just get the store brand frames from the local chain optical store I go to. Not the name brand stuff but perfectly fine glasses. Granted by the time I add lenses the total gets up to 450-500.

Ive got good name brand (for glasses, not fashion designer brand) frames and they were only $200 iirc.

Seriously? Someone needs to teach the both of you how to shop because you are both paying way too damned much for frames.

What's so bad about not paying stupid money for frames?

/still felt expensive

I'm surprised the ads on this thread didn't turn into the internet eyeglass outlets. You can get a large variety of frames and lenses for under $200. If you look at your prescriptions you'll see a blank next to the bit about pupillary distance (PD). But there's been a silent conspiracy by the optometrists and optical outlets not to reveal that measurement. That's where you have to take your chances with the flash-based measurement apps, but I've found them accurate.

I can't do contacts because my work often ends in clouds of mold spores, it's good to be able to rinse my eyes.

I might go for LASIK someday, but not now.

This was my reaction and thoughts as well. The glasses are kind of nice, just not $500 nice.

Looks like someone missed the thermal exhaust port with their proton torpedoes, and hit the main port instead.
