Possibilities with dark sunglasses

Aren't you bothered when talking to people wearing dark sunglasses? You know what I am talking about. The ones so dark you can't even make out the eyes. Its weird to talk to a person without being able to see their eyes.

In India, like many other places, its customary to greet someone with a smile and raise eye-brows. It spooks me out when people do this wearing dark shades. Then during conversation you have no clue which way they are looking. For all you know, they might as well be rolling their eyes at you!

There is also a great tactical advantage to not letting others see your eyes. Significant amount of brain is hooked up directly to our eyes. Following a person's eyes is one of the easiest ways to figure out their thoughts. Security folks regularly use this. Next time take a look the security personnel in TV news clips, all of them wear dark glasses.

Now think about all the awesome things that you could do with a pair of these. Use it to your fullest advantage. Stare at random things during those boring conversations. Next time you meet that annoying neighbour or the complaining colleague, instead of listening to their rants, you can be checking out that PYT who passed by. For extra points, you can try winking too. Just imagine the possibilities ... !

Frankly, I don't know what bothers me more, not being able to see the eyes or the perceived advantage I feel they have. Guess I should get a pair of those super-reflective polarizing sunglasses and give this a try.
