I spotted it's 1st April !
Wait a sec...
The Committee for Purity in the Camp is reportedly selling spectacles that deliberately blur vision, leading wearers not into temptation. The glasses are, apparently, on sale in the more orthodox Jewish sections of Israel, for £25 or only a fiver for stickers one can attach to ones existing specs. The idea is to blur anything …
Yes sir, this new patented system will 100% guarantee to ensure you don't give in to temptations.
Step one is a large burly man walks alongside you wherever you go.
Step two is, if he see's your eyes straying onto things it shouldn't then he punchs you. If you continue to oggle at Bulgarian airbags and the like then he pops you in the other eye. Your eyes swell up and then you can't see anything! Problem solved!
Then when you cannot see anything the burly man helps you not walk into things.
Praise buddah, your soul will be saved!!
That will be £999.99 please.
Except this is about hardline Judaism, a different and less practical form of sky pilotry.
BTW, it's spelled "Buddha" generally, and most Buddhist monks are usually quite relaxed about the fact that they are allowed to indulge in sexual relations.
Still, carry on, Clarkson.
"No man has self control!"
As we have been told many times it's all the fault of women - despite men apparently being better, stronger etc.etc.
Google had produced the Tommy glasses - there are two more products to come---
"just put on the eye shades, put in the ear plugs, you know where to put the cork"
How dare you mock $religion. Your comment is highly insulting for $religion_practisers because you're generalizing thus causing them heavy damage.
We'll sue and won't settle for less than $10000,- unless you're living in Europe; then it will have to be E 15000,- due to your extra "stigmatisation" being involved.
Sure; jokingly written. The worst part? This sort of BS is actually happening right now.
Whoops, did I just insinuate $religion to be bs? Uh oh....
... Put on your eyeshades. You know where to put the cork.
(Apologies to The Who.)
Some people are so bloody stupid.
If you need artificial aids to maintain your mental purity, then you're failing to live up to what your culture/god requires of you.
Still, there's profit in it for someone, I suppose.
Guessing it will be approximately 30 seconds after launch that glasses will be hacked. Can see a market for a variety of overlays, am I the only one that would fancy wandering round as normal but viewing everyone as Zombies or something similar.
Personally I can't wait for the one that makes everyone else appear as a nude Kelly Brook.
" female nipples which our own society likes to see covered "
Only some of society! I for one am an equal opportunist, women have just the same right to bare their chests & nipples as men do!
If people are offended by the human body, try moving to a Muslim country, they can accommodate the prudes just fine... (its their life, do what you want, but don't start being all puritanical in my country!)
The UK is a bit too prudish I think, seriously people are even forced to wear clothes in a Sauna! how unhygienic!!
I have no idea why there is that rule most civilised countries deal with nudity in saunas without it turning into a total mess.
But then I don't see what the problem is with allowing people to wear or not wear clothes as they like anywhere. However I suspect the reason for covering up is to save the council having to clear up the pools of puke that would be the result of most of our fellow citizens wobbling around. I mean have you seen the state of most of the people (especially the women) in this country - more uncontrolled, untoned, wobbly lard than you could ever burn. Its disgusting,
Orthodox Jewish rules are definitely the most funny:
AC. Humor can be a matter of taste.
... when I marvel at what the human race has achieved. There are times when I really believe that there is nothing that we cannot achieve given the resources, leadership and the will to make it happen.
Then I read about things like this; and I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea for another asteroid to wipe out all life on Earth and start again from scratch.
It's 10 in the morning and I feel like I need a large drink to cry into.
"... a good idea for another asteroid to wipe out all life on Earth and start again from scratch."
Hmm, one person wears stickers on their glasses to make them short-sighted, another wishes that all life on Earth was exterminated by an asteriod. I know which one I'd rather share this planet with...
Never mind that - why was she out of the house on her own?! Clearly she was bringing dishonour to her family by not having a man with her to make sure she didn't give in to the urge to strip naked and participate in a mass orgy right there in the street, which everyone knows women would do given half a chance. So running her over was socially responsible and an act of kindness for her family by saving them the trouble of killing her themselves.
I thought at first that El Reg was being sarcastic, but it seems to actually exist. The Committee of Un-American Activities does spring to mind.
I wonder whether orthodox Israeli soldiers will be wearing these when they are next engaging neighbours or co-inhabitants?
I wouldn't recommend these glasses to anybody, yet it would help to see where these guys are coming from.
Many years ago, when 'Angry from Tumbridge Wells' would complain about too much leg being shown on the telly, many people responded saying "Well, just turn the telly off if you don't like it, or switch over to Songs of Praise". The same is said now about people complaining about porn on the internet, they're told to just not look at it and let those who want to look at it do just that.
Now though, all the stuff that was offensive back then is around and about us so much that if you are offended by the sight of bare thighs, bosoms or bottoms, if certain words offend you or certain ideas cause you distress, then you can't just 'switch to another channel' can you? Suddenly, you're no longer free to leave the house because you're either made red with rage or you're offended by what you may call lies.

Unless I am mistaken (and it is entirely possible I am) there is no defined "right to not be offended" here in the West, unlike other negative rights like the "right to not be assaulted". If someone is no longer free to leave the house because the entire country offends, I would recommend they should be looking at emigration to a country that better fits their personal moral beliefs, as the one that they are in is obviously the wrong one. It's the geographical equivalent to changing the channel.
The drawback of a free society, is that the rest of society is free to offend as it sees fit. As a comitted freetard (a 'tard that believes in freedom), I fully support them in their right to excercise that freedom, even (especially!) if it is me they are offending. After all, I am free to offend them right back, and I am also free to ignore them ;)
For the lawsuits when people realise these things have ruined their eyesight. It's essentially like wearing a prescription not suited to your vision, eventually your eyes try to adapt to the glasses then you can't see properly without them. Trouble is sooner or later these'll probably go out of production, then they'll need to pay for glasses they might not have otherwise needed.
