Anyone ever heard of some fangled thing called "against the rule astigmatism?" A woman came into our shop recently, and took off her rimless specs. She shows them to me and says " these are thicker here than they are here because of "AGAINST THE RULE ASTIGMATISM." She looked me up and down, then says "well, you certainly wouln't know what that is. My optician does." She leaves, with me standing there pondering the future of the human race. I went to my auto mechanic and says, "this is a spark plug. SPARK PLUG. but you wouln't know what that is." sigh.
