Become some sort of Aquatic Animal   (+4, -3)  [vote for, against]
A vitreous solution allows your eyes to float out of your head while the muscles of the eye sockets extend and retract them by their ocular nerves through their aquatic environs.

Simply by wearing the vitreous solution containing goggles, the human eyeball is allowed to float in the socket until the ocular nerve grows long enough, encouraged by constant stretching by muscle flexion in response to observed stimuli.

Once this happens the eyballs can escape the socket and enjoy greater movement throughout the volumous goggles. The wearer who has grown extending their eyeballs from an early age exercises remarkable muscular control as the eyballs dart around.

Well, obviously this is a sensible idea. I am only marginally skeptical of the ability of muscles (which are entirely contractile) to control an extracranial eyeball.

The obvious gain is you can turn and look at your own face. However given the snaileyes I doubt I would want to...

Isn't there an African tribe out there that does this?

Couldn't this same effect be accomplished via a sharp blow to the back of the head? I've seen it happen to dogs, usually after being hit by a car.
