Question of the Week #271

Do you think that high-tech goggles that let you “see through” people’s clothing should be banned? How much would you pay for glasses that rendered people naked?

Uh… That first question is worded as if high-tech goggles that let you “see through” people’s clothing are a thing that actually exist. Are high-tech goggles that let you “see through” people’s clothing a thing that actually exist? Because, if so, I totally skipped that ad on YouTube.

Then again, I skip all the ads on YouTube as soon as humanly possible.

I don’t think they should be banned. I don’t think they should be invented in the first place. Three words: invasion of privacy.

I’m sure that whatever scientific think tank came up with X-ray specs had some kind of altruistic reasons for designing and creating this fantastic new invention. Maybe they were originally meant to help the military scope out enemy bases to see how many people are hiding behind walls. But then some corporate shill got the bright idea that you could adjust the goggles to make them just see through clothes and started selling them to the OnlyFans crowd. Of course they’ll sell like hotcakes. Assuming hotcakes are a big seller these days.

But what do you think? Should these non-existent goggles be banned on a pre-emptive basis? Let me know down in the comments!

  1. I think someone should invent a readily available device that could be worn and it would cause blindness in the person using the googles. We would have an epidemic of blindness, I betcha. It would be even more interesting to see who those people were. Talk about exposure.
