Magnetic Temples....

Embed Magnets in Sunshade Temples to make them stick to Clothing

I have now started to wear sunglasses, however, I find it a trial to walk around with the case also. I like to hook my shades in my shirt, when I am not wearing them. The problem with this is, if I bend over, the shades are likely to fall. If I had a pair of magnets embedded in the temple of the sunglasses, when I hooked them in my shirt, the magnets would lock one temple inside the shirt, and one outside, making it harder for them to fall

       This rings a bell - maybe another format might be a single magnet placed at the bridge of the nose - you might have balance issues with that though I guess.

       Then you could affix the ends of a length of string to each magnet on each side, to allow you to pull one side or the other to even them out. To keep the string out of the way under normal usage, you could have the string run round the back of the neck.

       Doesn't placing magnets against your temples give you brain damage, or attract the aliens, or deflect the government's mind control or something?   

       I'm thinking the same product could appeal to a variety of markets.

       // brain damage //   

       Only if your blood chemistry is based around cobalt instead of iron.   

       // or attract the aliens //   

       That's crystals, not magnets.   

       // or deflect the government's mind control //   

       That's aluminium foil, and you need to make sure it's grounded.   

       // or something? //   

       Yes, but we're not saying what.

       Crystals are for dolphins, not aliens, aren’t they?

       Crystals for aliens, weird machinery for humans from the past and/or future, herring for dolphins.   

       Try dangling a crystal on a bit of string of your boat and see how many dolphins you get.

       I mis-read or mis-understood this to be suggesting embedding magnets under the skin of ones temples, to help keep sunglasses in place (or ordinary spectacles for that matter) and I liked it. You'd get the shading effect over your eyes without risking the unsightly white bits on the side of your face where the arms of your sunglasses kept the sun off.   

       This idea has legs, I think. How about a subdermal magnet implanted on your wrist to hold a strapless watch? Ladies; how about subdermal magnets on your chest, allied with suitable magnetic clothing for that totally backless, strapless, sideless top?

       ..... and the same magnets will end up destroying your bank cards.

       I was not aware that fringe religion had extended to the worship of protective eyewear.
