A few months ago I predicted that since penguins are no longer cool, they will be placed by giraffes. Well, I was wrong. It's eye trauma.

Have you noticed lately just how many people in movies, tv and comics suffer some sort of horrible eye injury?

From Monday's episode of Chuck (threat of a large syringe to the eye) to the Disappearing Pencil Trick, it's suddenly cool to lose depth perception.

That used to be the style in ancient Japan.

I dated a Viet Namese woman years ago whose grandmother had had this done. The first time I met her, I thought she had no teeth; then I looked closely...she had teeth, but they were all completely black.

Very very weird. But on the upside, she can drink all the tea she wants without turning her teeth brown. Clever!

Nah, eye trauma has been around for ages. Look at Single White Female (stiletto heel through eye), back to Un Chien Andalou (early cinematic special effects with a woman slicing her eye open with a razor), and *way* back to Oedipus, even.
