I ate a chili pepper and when I woke up, this site was here.
Around Summer 2002, I was spending money on nothing but bills for school and who knows what. My brother had just gotten Scars, to which my impression was "that's really dumb to spend all that money on sunglasses", but then I tried them on and really noticed the difference in quality. I'd never seen a lens be so clear before. My comment was Everything looks like the Autolevel function in Photoshop. What a nerd I am sometimes. At that point the Splice came out and my brother wished he had waited and gotten that instead. So one day when I was at a cookout playing hooky from work, the one shred of champagne taste that I had kicked in and I decided to get a pair

After that, I got a pair of minutes, but they were too girly and didn't look like the online picture, so I gave those to my sister and then got a pair of leather Mars, since they were so odd. That lead to a pair of 24k X-Metal XX's, and a Time Bomb. Then on and on and on. Once the site took off, it was all over. I think I had a dozen or so when that happened.

Ah, I suppose that's more consistent than daisy chaining 9v batteries.

Very nice. Amazing what you can do with Titanium and some batteries. The result came out quite nice.

Wishing for some snow, so I can go out and wear mine.

I think the glasses you can donate for OneSight also use this method.

Good find. Worth saving to my archive.

The Casing boot is the best. I only wear it a few times a year so they stay in good condition. Welcome to the site, and thanks for stopping by.

They're starting to show up on the 'bay, so hopefully soon.

I have no idea where I'd put that, but how could I pass it up?

Makes sense as the Subzero hadza similar logo change once it moved to the Zero lineup

What classification are the new masks? Do they catch virus? Breathing filter?
Are they totally sealed? If not, it's just false safety... - pastor.elfstrom

Sadly, proper sealed masks have been near impossible to find since last February. My wife does spray tanning, and we had these nice 3M masks that worked well, but they soon disappeared, and now can't be bought since they are reserved for medical staff (naturally).

We used to be able to get those for $1, but now we have to use the N95 ones for $10 a piece, which may be fine as far as filtration, but they fit so poorly, there's no protection from the sides. Since spray tan solution is brown, you get a very good idea how much ends up bypassing the mask once you blow your nose.

I think most are not doing as much for yourself, but rather preventing the outgoing exposure. Touching items, and then touching your face is likely a bigger problem.

Sorry to hear about your experience, and I'm glad you're doing well. It seems to have such different results on each person.

Nice find. I have a few from throughout the years. I should really make disc images of them before they degrade.

That's so cool.

Nice, thanks for the heads up.

To you too. May great pickups come in 2021.

Probably none if I'm honest. I haven't done any customs since the hey-day of this site since many more are far better at it now. I think I did pick up a muted black one with the idea that I'd cut up an SI TR45 lens, but that never happened.

Those were a good model. I should have given them more credit at the time, but I was missing the Scar.

Welcome. Good to have you here.

Ten years later. I should make number 60 soon.

Wasn't that a villain on The Flash

So does the earsock extend and loop through a hole in the stem.

This site is becoming possessed. Or maybe you double tapped while scrolling, and it added it by the time you got to the bottom. No take backs though. You'll forever be known as a fan.

Coming soon for those that are into both Radar EV and My Little Pony:
