    In the US flag burning is consitutionally protected. I'm fairly sure it falls under charter rights in Canada.

    On optics, the reason I went with Maui Jim over Oakley was that the Maui Jim's, while more expensive, had signfigantly better optics and were nearly distortion free. Also their polarization is much better then anyone elses I've seen and when your in any glare situation it makes a huge difference. If your the kind of person who doesn't take care of your sunglasses they aren't for you. But they do have many Rx compatible frame and lens sets. Though if you wear glasses get contacts, having your periphal vision back will change your life.

    amen to employee insurance! a lot of people abuse it though. a buddy of mine used his $250 to get some non-prescription gucci sunglasses. nasty. two-fiddy is pretty crappy coverage but that's all we get. good lenses alone are at least $150. or maybe i'm blind. say bye-bye to the entire amount if you have astigmatism or need bifocals or whatever.

    keith,

    you mentioned awhile ago that you had someone re-sole your dominators with vibram? any info on the cobbler? was it expensive? i picked up some adidas merckx off cl for cheap but it's a pain to walk in them without a recessed cleat.

    The most basic of the basic starts at like $35 for regular plastic lenses with no coating, but with a prescription like -4,-3.75 and astigmatism up the wazoo you're looking at double to triple the cost for lightweight lenses, that's not even for polarized ones. And at the end the coverage blows more than a $6 mec espresso replacement lens.

    What's better I stripped the threading on my Ti alloy frame (glasses) and now it's held together by teh ghetto.
    Someone give me their eyes.

    Well...it was with a tiny bit of haggling. I'm not very good at it but I'm getting better. Wife is teaching me.
    175 frames..60 for lenses (regular price)...so I got 200 taxes in. Nice people.

    Operator did you strip it by cranking it or screwing in the screw crooked? No she is not, blanked out for purposes of anonymity.
    Of all the ppl that might pull off those glasses, Darkmother I think you might be one of them.

    I sat on them :| The frame is indestructable but the threads sure aren't. Although I like contacts (zero weight on your face, throwaway when they break), it just can't be that good for your eyeballs for some medical device to sit on them for your entire waking hours.

    I just figure that maybe once they invent a lens that floats over the surface of your eye, then I'll think about lenses.

    Contacts?

    I want mirrored contacts like the rent-a-cop rydell rides with in Virtual Light.

    I've never seen mirrored contacts that you could actually see out of. but if you have a link I'd be more then interested.

    And high-def laser surgery and give you better then 20/20 vision now

    Not an option with a road shoe. I had the guy on Yonge between Adelaide and Richmond do it for me many moons ago. I am not sure if they are even still there.

    There's lots of small nigglies associated with corrective eye surgery still. Give it like 10 more years.

    Like not being able to drive/ride at night possibly due to starbursts in your vision from external lights. Kinda like driving with really scratched up glasses.

    Woe pedestrians: they are a ridiculously unaware (or suicidal) bunch... biking 2 minutes from home on St Clair W and this Italian guy continues to walk across the road even though I'm travelling at upwards of 45 km/h and honk my airzound at full volume. He stops at the divided line, but looks as if he thinks he can stroll? (wtf?) to the other side before I move through the lane. I repeat for desired effect, and do a close psych to scare the **** out of him: his response was to mumble incoherently.

    Gah, what's with drivers and pedestrians in this city? Do they not understand that cyclists have as much right to the roads as other vehicles? And that a bike traveling over a certain velocity can do significant damage to a human body in a frontal impact?

    i think you are referring to `novelty shoes` that was (kind of) across from spreads (or whatever the current name is) on the east side of yonge. they should still be there.
