3-D Glasses are Racist

Before my mother left - seriously, ten hours before she got on the plane - Bump and I decided that we needed to eek out the last little bit of Granny Nanny and went to a movie.

We saw Harry Potter in imax 3D and let me just say:
1. Wow. Holy fricken amazing.
2. $17.50 per ticket? Jebuz.

3. 3D Glasses are racist.

You know how - or maybe you don't - 3D glasses should sit about an inch from your face for optimum effectiveness? Well, that's hard if your nose doesn't have a bridge.

I'm just saying.

Aunt Bob suggested that there could be "Asian 3D glasses," but that would probably be EVEN WORSE.

I offered that at least those glasses would be good at math.

As an Asian eyeglass wearer since the age of 10, I wholeheartedly agree. That's one of the reasons I hate 3D glasses. Thanks for the laugh!

oh yeah - though my main hate is that they give me headaches 'cos my vision isn't the same on both eyes (or something).
Maybe they could be marketed simply as 3-D eyeglasses with nose pads.
