    Does the refrigerator light stay on when you close the door?

    Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

    Others may find an explanation helpful. I have killfiled whatshisname,
    so didn't see the original post.

    When somebody's eyes get smaller, that means they were wearing plus
    lenses. When the eyes get bigger, that means they were wearing the Evil

    When I had my high school graduation picture taken, the instructions
    said to borrow some blank frames from your friendly OD, if you wore
    glasses. I figured it was the photographer's problem, assuming in
    ignorance that this had to do with reflections. I was wrong. Due to my
    severe myopia, my eyes and the area around them, were severely shrunken.
    It looked pretty bad. I had no idea I looked like that all the time.
    That's one advantage of contacts over glasses for people with severe
    myopia, their eyes look reasonably normal. In cartoons, the villain
    always has "beady little eyes" and the heroine has "big blue eyes".
    It's more than cosmetics. Eye contact is very important in
    interpersonal communications, and my eyes weren't easy to see.

  4. Optical illusion. Eyes stay same size and position. Normally you see
    them through his lenses, which magnify your view. He takes his glasses
    off, no magnification, his eyes appear smaller (but aren't really).
