I noticed last night that no one is wearing corrective lenses on LOST. No one is so unfortunate as to have reading glasses or be nearsighted? I find it hard to believe that out of 42 people on the island, only one of which is under the age of 18, there is not one person wearing glasses. No Piggy? Perhaps I am working with a population sampling bias, but a large proportion of people I know must wear glasses. Maybe it's because we read in the dark too much when we were children.
As I was thinking about this last night I was thinking about how I would survive on the island. I really can't see at all. I would have hopefully remembered to pack my glasses, but sometimes I forget. Then I would have my contacts but a limited supply of cleaning solution. And those are just 2 week disposals. Could I boil sea water and use that a buffered saline solution somehow? doubtful.
I also just want to plug 39dollarglasses.com for those of you who wear the glasses. 39 dollars! its true. I have numerous pairs and they are for reals glasses. check it out.
