Today I'm going to be talking about glasses! There's an infamous stereotype that people with spectacles are smart- and surprisingly, there can be some truth to that!
Some people require glasses because they've read too much in the dark. Reading is a symbol of education and intelligence, which is how I assume this particular stereotype came about.
The majority of people who need glasses, however, have inherited poor eyesight from relatives, and there can be other causes of acquiring glasses, such as reading too close to a page, or spending too much time on a computer or phone.

Seriously?! I despair with humanity. I think I shall resign to being a walrus.
