Chrome! Thats what I call style.


Re:Sighted guy who wants to know more about blind people



I would probably put chrome balls in if I lost my eyes, that way other people would get more use out of them than me.

that could be funny, or a spiral


Re:Sighted guy who wants to know more about blind people



All I meant was that I think glass eyes that have other things besides eyes in them are cool. Maybe put a smiley face in there.

Hey, I'm from moscow. I just know about zumer cause he said so on another post. This is great, all of the main posters these days are idahoans. Kinda makes ya proud. Anyway, thanks a bunch Alana for the response on that. I'll keep that in mind, that was really something I always wondered about. And yeah, I did mean a confederate flag. Or something like that, you know, anything but a boring ol eye. Show some reble spirit. If it was my eye, I would probably put a mexican flag in there. Pura Raza. Puro Michoacan

ya he's my friend. ok, i didn't used to be totally blind but i am ever since my retina detached. even the surgery it's still dark. anyways, what i find usefull is when people desgribe things in comparison. for example, comparing the collor blue to the sound of falling rain, and red to the feel of the sun on your face or the taste of a sweet apple. by the way, i'm stupid but what the hell is a reble flag? you don't mean the confederate flag... right??

Hey, you are from Idaho aren't you?


Re:Sighted guy who wants to know more about blind people



I am not totally blind, but I know people that are. It is from what I understand interesting to know the colors of objects even though people can not see them. It is helpful to use color, shape, texture, and dimention when talking about discriptions. I hope this helps.
