New Glasses Require Piercing Bridge of Nose

at 5:28 am. Filed under Funny Hacks, Human Hacks

If you are into piercing these new glasses might be for you. Might not be the best for playing sports though, getting hit in the face may open a new world of hurt…

“Here’s the step-by-step:

* Get pierced – an internally-threaded barbell that goes through the skin above the bridge of your nose
* Use a tabletop mill to cut the L-shaped metal pieces that screw onto the barbell
* Attach rare earth magnets to the glasses; these hold the glasses on.
* Don’t get rid of the bridge pieces; they let the lenses sit on your nose and take the actual weight of the lenses. ”
