Research papers and data sheets are just about all I ever read LOL.

 

but... no. chemistry isn't one of my strengths.

I'm already lost at the abstract.

I'm an European, too. You know?  -_-

(though I live on the city outskirts, even outside of it - not in the centre)

Dat paper. >_>

 

I've worn hard contact lenses from 4th grade to last year (probably about a decade), and I've hated every single minute of it. Admittedly it has prevented my nearsightedness from skyrocketing through the roof, but after losing several of them (down the sink) or even breaking them by accident while trying to wash them ($150/lens), I think of them as more of a financial burden than anything.

 

The fact that my eyes were always so dry didn't help either.

The O2 will be just fine, and if it's worth anything to you, I'm the guy Lord Voldermort referred to when he said something like "one user reported that he couldn't really tell the difference between the O2 and a b22, using $1000 headphones (Audeze LCD-2)" on the O2 details page.
Haha, you serious bro? Where would that post be?

For one reason or another, not in 'MERICUH land... Most power lines are on poles ~20 feet off the ground.

Hey we Canadians have to deal with this crap too...

 

My lenses were RGP. You do change out RGP lenses after 12 hours. Any longer and your eyes may risk abrasion. These are more expensive, and only used when your nearsightedness is going through the roof.

Well, with that much free space, underground power lines just don't make fiscal sense. Europe doesn't have much free space, so they have to go underground.

 

Think about it: a power line goes down in NA, and you simply send in a crew with an crane truck to go fix it.

 

A power line somehow goes down in Europe...  I can imagine traffic being slowed down for a few weeks.

Why not get soft lenses?

Also, eye drops are amazing when you have dry eyes biggrin.gif

Hmm, for some reason I always thought you were Chinese.... Oh well, guess I was wrong.
That sounds painful, I wear my soft lenses about 16 hours a day. What I was talking about though was the fact that you don't dispose of RGP lenses every 2-4 weeks like the soft contacts I have...

Some places don't have all this mystical space you speak of, but I guess it still isn't as bad as The EU or HK...

Whats the diffence between hard and soft contact lenses?
post #52918 of 149751
Power lines are underground only within urban areas. Between cities it just goes over ground, much cheaper to construct and easier to fix. However within urban areas there's not enough space to run them overground, plus running them underground should be both safer and harder to steal from.

The thing about underground power lines is that they only ever go down when someone accidentally hits them during construction, or when one of the step-down stations blows a fuse. Both cases don't happen that often, and we (at least in the Netherlands) very rarely have to deal with power outage.

In our area Enbridge (our natural gas distributor) has a bunch of signs telling people to call before they dig, lest they hit a gas line >_>

 

They even mark patches of grass with yellow paint so that people would know where not to dig at all.
