Sorry. Couldn't see it.

So you can go blind doing that.

This is what your Mother warned you about. You should have listened to her!

They're currently looking into it. They're just not seeing anything.

That's the kind of problem that could keep you up all night.

Can I take it until I need glasses?

judi,
I knew that everybody and their brother, sister, aunt, uncle, father, stepfather, mother, stepmother, half brother, half sister, cousin, second cousin, kissing cousin... would flood you with this particular news item, so I refrained from bothering you over this past Holiday Weekend.

Do I get a gold star?

*zips in*

Translation of igloo's post:

EEEKKKKK! How could I have missed that one?!?!?

You're welcome.

*zips out*

Okay, so there's a blind viagra user who painted his willy white and no longer has to use a cane.


Sorry Manfred...
Blinded by the Light - Manfred Mann (1976)

Blinded by the pill
straighter than a pole
made from chrome vanadium steel
Blinded by the pill
straighter than a pole
made from chrome vanadium steel
Blinded by the pill
straighter than a pole
made from chrome vanadium steel

lefthand, righthand any hand,
Any which way I can,
With a teenager diplomat
And the dumps with the mumps
As the adolescent pumps his way into his hat

*Editors note:
No need to modify Manfred Mann's last three lines.

But we're partway to a cure for baldness. Now if we can only direct hair growth to the head, not the palms. And then there's the dead kitten problem...

I having lunch with my Dad in the lunch room of the retirement center where my parents live. This was the topic of conversation at a table next to us. I heard one guy say "Heck, I was going blind anyway, so it doesn't matter to me!"

Then another said "at our age, being blind sometimes helps."

sly, doncha just LOVE eating meals in the dining room at the retirement center? i do. i'd visit my parents every day if i could, for the sheer joy of observing all the petty politics involved in yet another mealtime.

judi, I love the gossip. One woman didn't want to date a guy who lived in a different wing because it was too far away. She said he lived "waaay over there."

How certain are they that the blindness isn't caused by loose scalp being drawn downward over the eyes?

And, judi, the only reason for Viagra use at the retirement center is to keep the men from rolling out of bed at night.

The manufacturer has responsibly decided to change the label - it will now also be in Braille.

Well yeah, but at least there are few enough people commenting now that *mine* don't get lost. :-)

I've missed the place... not that I have time to be the (second) funniest guy here. Nor, ok, the *capability*, but it wouldn't be any fun if I admitted that, would it?

The subheader to this article in the Colorado Springs newspaper was something like: "Blindness actually a stroke in the eye."

Quite descriptive, that.

The article points out that a lack of blood to the eye is a likely cause. Oy.
