    The man's a genius.  Nice thinking.
    Actually grabbed my LL Bean sailing sunglasses, racing watch, photo and
    racing stopwatches, and a couple of calculators.  It would seem each has its
    own "angle of polarization.
    Despite the posts over the past few days, and the opinions in "Hitch Hiker's
    Guide to the Galaxy" regarding digital watches, it still surprised me.
    Think it may be time to get the marketing department at Serious Cybernetics
    into developing polarized sunglasses with round, rotating lenses.
    To date, all I know is the answer was 42.  Still working on clearly stating
    the question ;-)
