So I was being awesome in the pool yesterday and I went underwater and a bubble from a splash I had made came up and “landed” on my eyeball, and I could see clearly out of that eye underwater! This is how goggles work. Goggles work by separating your eye and the water by air, that way the light bends back through the air like your eye is designed to see through. Anyway the bubble went away but left an idea in my head. If I could keep air next to my eyes, I would have goggles!
First, pretend like you’re using binoculars with your hands (like how you make your hands into circles and put them up to your eye).
Next, make sure they’re fairly well sealed against your eye sockets.
Third, have your head straight down, pointed at the water, and slowly submerge yourself, still looking down.
The air can’t float up because it’s being held against your eye and can’t float around because your hands are in the way, so you now have air against your eye and essentially a nice pair of hand-made (pun intended) goggles! Sadly you can’t look around very much because the air bubbles will float up, but hey it’s cool.
I get it. Parents want their kids to be safe. Especially when driving. Especially when driving with other kids as their passengers. ESPECIALLY when driving with other kids as their passengers down to a big beach party that continues past sunset.
However, I wish they would not let down 4 other kids (not including their own) by eliminating their way of transportation, and tell them they can’t go to the big senior kick-off party at the beach because they decided they don’t want their kid driving down there.
