Because you don't get distracted by all that is going on around you......

Oh dear. I just remembered this sketch on a show my parents used to watch, I think it was the Max Gillies Report?

I think he was dressed as as the Pope, or some religious figure... at a press conference, podium, microphones and all.. "Stop, or you will go blind!" ... *stumbles blindly into microphones* ....

20-6, but the Bulldogs try was more luck than judgement.
Yep. Thanksgiving this year is 27/11, so Black Friday, the highest day for album sales of the year in the US, is 28/11. The album was either going to come out there on 18/11 or 25/11. Last time, they did it the week of Thanksgiving, but it seems this time, they want both the week before (maximise sales from it being U2's new album) and then the week itself (maximise sales from Black Friday) - i.e. possibly going for #1 two weeks in a row, rather than just maximising their chances of going #1 the week of Thanksgiving before dropping off the next.

Last time I saw the top ten, it looked like I was on top of a lot of women.

Just for the record, on a basic eye chart test, depending on the lighting conditions of the test, I can test as not legally blind with correction. However, when you take into account all the defects in my eyes, e.g. astigmatism, nystagmus, and the photophobia (light sensitivity) that makes the lighting conditions pretty crucial to my performance on the eye chart, I am legally blind. So I can see much better indoors with consistent artificial light or non-direct sunlight than I can outside in direct sunlight.
