My memory is a bit fuzzy but I seem to recall you said you had problems with visualizing numbers and getting an intuitive understanding of arithmetic concepts ... I could be way off though. Anyway, hit me up if you like and we can try out some tricks.

Grif, I hope the island didn'd sustain any serious damage, I imagine your house shaking even a little bit is scary as shit. We narrowly escaped the path of a tornado here in NC, it fucked up a trailer park like 30minutes south of us like woah.
So I went with contacts! It's really awesome to look at things without any glare, and with no frames getting in the way. And being able to wear sunglasses without prescription is pretty swell too.
It took me a good 5 minutes per eye to get the suckers in, but I tried again and I'm already getting quicker. On a related note, I've come to the realization that I have extremely long girly eyelashes that do a nice job of protecting my eyes from fingertip-sized invaders.

ND : How bad is your sight without them? Because my prescription was super light, and I am fine to drive and such without glasses. Really the only thing I cant do, is read text that is small-ish from obnoxious distances, which is only mildly inconvenient when highway driving at night (white text on dark backgrounds blurs the worst). I'm actually pretty alright at reading blurred/skewed text (yeah, take that CAPTCHA text!) and not being to, say, read the TV guide from across the house isn't like a huge deal.
I only ended up with the pair I have now because I couldn't read overhead projectors from the back of the room in highschool. I would also sit in back because I hated math, just to bring the conversation full circle haha.
Moly: havent seen that site, thanks for the link.

Hey, so I am trying to remember the name of this one 19th-20th century American philosopher, and I can't. All I remember is that he had an epic mustache and that he was kind of a hard ass. Can you help me out?
