Birth control glasses..

Wearing those on your night out, would probably prevent you from having sex.. :D

Nice photos, but I don't like this gear, it's to "normal" .. ;) I'm jealous about the other things though :mrgreen:
Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.

A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

Ah yes, the ubiquitous birth control glasses! When my unit was activated for desert shield, everyone who wore glasses was issued 3 pairs of these----those with contact lenses were forbidden to wear them in theater because we were told they were impossible to decon and of course the talcum-powder sand would blow into them as well. Great pics Norge! Are those commercial ski's or mil-issue?

I used to wear those type of frames when i was a kid.... :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol: My aunt was in the army and she always send me those extra frames she had.since I had a high prescription and was allergic to the metal frames these were perfect. They where mostly black and trust me I was the joke of my elementary classmates. :roll: :cry: :cry: :D
My mom still has them at home back in PR....
I miss those days.... :mrgreen:
