What think you about these clowns who wear sunglasses day or night, no matter how bright it is? I saw 2 dudes wearing them this morning despite the glaring absence of... SUN. It wasn't even close to being sunny. I was about to ask the guys which way the beach was, but I figured they wouldn't be able to see me. What with the dark glasses and all. Then a second thought crossed my mind. "Greet" them with a baseball bat. But I thought better of that one.

I've noticed this odd behavior as well. Obviously, many view them as some fashion accessory. -- Another tidbit: Some years ago I was reading an article in a New York sunday newspaper magazine regarding life in NYC, and some woman was quoted as saying that she and others always wear sunglasses to look less approachable to men-- they can't make eye contact. Another weird thing was that some women said they wore "walkman" headphones, but with no walkman, for the same reason- aloofness. This was back in the 80's but it was so funny I still remember it.

Though I doubt these guys are doing it for my reason, but even in cloudy weather there is still a lot of glare outside. For people like me who are relatively light sensitive, sunglasses tend to be a must when it is light out.

Desert, me too. Even cloudy days can be uncomfortable for some people. I have blue eyes and people with blue eyes tend to be more sensitive to light. There are a ton of other factors as odd as an overactive thyroid. But granted, some people just think they look cool in shades.

I wear shades because my contact lenses make my eyes sensative. Today, driving from Walla Walla to The Dalles, there was just enough clouds to make a glare, but not enough for shade. I don't wear them at night because that's stupid. The not making eye contact thing is a good idea. Good way to check someone out.

I don´t really feel cool wearing sunglasses while it´s windy and clouded outside. Dust, wind and hard contact lenses are not a good combination. Well yes someone may say in this case i could use normal glasses but this is another story...
