    Yes folks, if it's on a web site, it must be true.

    The person in the video has voluntary exopththalmus not a longer eye.
    For an explanation of why (sorry doesn't involve strain, extraocular
    muscles or the dreaded minus) see:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2092738

    Doing this trick repeatedly will stretch the optic nerve and possible
    damage it, leading to some loss of sight.

    Just a joke, Judy!\

    Obviously NOT a Bates issue.

    We must have some fun here.

    But it is truly amazing, isn't it?

    We do.

    While you (and Atchoo) are back in the home ... or ... wherever it is
    that you go to during your little "sabbaticals."

    But ... then you come back.

    And a dark cloud hangs over sci.med.vision.
