    Eyes Right

    You shouldn't be staring. You know it. But, dammit, you're eyes don't always seem to want to cooperate.

    What are you(r eyes) guilty of staring at that you shouldn't be?

    - Car wrecks
    - infomercials (what, were you planning on ordering that Thighmaster that caused you to stop while channel surfing?)
    - 1970's-esque painted 'banger vans' (Star Wars or Middle Earth scenes painted on the side)
    - tabloid covers at the supermarket
    - billboards (why WHY WHY do I read them? I hate them...I think)

    Ditto.

    Women jogging in skimpy/tight running gear are a frequent catcher of my eyes!

    People's tattoos. I'm always curious to see what people have permanently painted on themselves. It would be pretty hypocritical of them to mind but I'm still careful not to stare too much at a biker or woman.

    Women...especially really nice legs. It's very hard to control my eyes during the summertime.

    Also, labrador retrievers. They're just so darn cute.

    Really nice looking buildings with eye-catching architecture, landscaping, and design. My GF thinks I'm weird because I've been known to refer to buildings as sexy. I tell her that it's a planning thing and she wouldn't understand.

    And finally, car wrecks, helicopters, low-flying aircraft, fires, and structural or tree damage due to natural disaster/wind, etc.

    Moles. Not the animals, either. And not the undercover spy kind. The black mark on your face kind.

    I am with you on that one...if I can get a picture even better.

    Other things that cause me to stare:

    Beautiful women
    female nudity
    clevage
    people that are over 300 lbs
    babies
    unusual or exotic cars
    mullets
    awful fashion (i.e. anything from the 80's, mu-mu's, people that shop at Wal-Mart etc)
    trains

    By the way, I saw a three car wreck on the way from lunch back to work today. Looked pretty bad and they had about 4 ambulances there and they were loading up someone on the gurney.

    Mole, mole, MOLE, moley mole.... ahh Austin Powers...


    I stare at people who deserve to be stared at... the ones who TRY to get looked at... goth, crazy hair, skimpy clothes, too dressed up etc. I make no qualms about looking either. If you are trying to get people to look at you I will.

    ps. And attractive women. Although you could put them in the category of deserving to be stared at.... hmmm

    Because of your avatar I'm picturing you as Abe Lincoln staring at women on the bus.

    Hey, I don't STARE at attractive females and their (hopefully) natural attributes - I *admire* them!



    Also, for me, I can include trains, dogs (happy ones), aerial images of cities and transport networks, structure fires and so forth.

    Hipsters (of which there are too many in Toronto) - the dorky glasses, the Grandpa hat, the ironic jacket, the shorty pants, the pointy shoes....
