    Is it just me or can other people tell too. If you look at somebody and you can tell that either they wear glasses, or have worn glasses?

    I don't know , but I swear it has to do with how their eye sockets are formed I can tell someone usually wears glasses.

    And I don't mean I can see them currently wearing glasses or see nose pad marks either.

    But, can you tell over the internet if I wear glasses or not?

    If I look at them and see them wearing glasses then yes.

    As the need for glasses involves refraction errors by the lens and not the orbital socket, I'd say you ARE picking up on some of the other cues you mentioned.

    Many people who wear glasses can typically pick up on the physical cues of other eye glass wearers; like the red marks, on the bridge of the nose.

    This is why Superman works only with people who don't wear glasses. It protects his secret identity.:D

    Yes, but can you tell if someone wears contacts and not glasses? Without being close enough to see them in their eyes.

    If demand for attention can be said to be a drug, perhaps. :)

    I can tell which way a car is going just by looking at its headlights. Should I start a thread about it?

    Hey, feel free! Sounds interesting.

    I was wondering...my cat's breath smells like cat food. Should I start a thread about that to see it other people have experienced it?

    BTW, I can usually tell when people normally wear glasses but aren't by them bumping into doors, furniture, etc, and not being able to read stuff.

    No, it's just by the way they squint.

    Thank the heavens someone else noticed.

    You see, the change in sockets is a sign of a carrier. Tiny aliens from beyond our galaxy have come here to spy on us. They kill people and inhabit their corpses to walk among us. The inhabiting phase is not perfect. One of the signs is a change in the eye sockets. The glasses are actually to protect them from certain types of light.

    Be vigilant. Be warned. I've said too mu

    To fool them and more easily spot these invaders you've got to get some special sunglasses that will reveal the corpse invading aliens within!

    And while you're out shopping get some ammo and bubblegum. ...Cause I'm all out of bubblegum.

    And sometimes their ears are...... like at a 45 degree angle to their head, or more.

    Yes...for yourself. Consult an arborist for the bonsai.

    If the bonsai tree with a hearing aid falls in the forest, does it hear the sound it may or may not make?

    I'm pro-life. I don't believe in arborists.

    A snail crawling by was making too much noise.

    I wear glasses, but I can't tell if other people are too unless I'm wearing my own.

    Just saying, like.
