If the Style forum is bad, I don't want to be good.
Seriously though, I'm interested in so many things, that there is no way that I couldn't find one "˜hobby' that doesn't correlate to something someone else is interested in. That said, in 68' not a lot of people wore contacts. I bet that not having glasses on has changed many people's looks from "˜unattractive' to "˜attractive' (all of which is subjective anyways).
Personally I sometimes wear my glasses and sometimes my contacts, and I wear the contacts only because of the ease of use (I don't have to clean them throughout the day, etc...), I could care less how glasses make me look. If someone doesn't like me for who I am then: oh, well.
