Why would they sell you glasses with hairspray on them? Hahaha, I mean, certainly, you don't use hair spray and are dumb enough to blame them for your . . . oh. Do you want a cookie? I've been told we're supposed to be nice to you people and not use the R-word anymore.

If someone is truly retarded I'm not sure they would fully comprehend what retarded means/is.. So why bother.. New words will be created.

Okay well if you're conflicted on your stance for this campaign. Just consider this, would you go up to a baby and say "the devil is gonna come and eat you while you're sleeping." Now even if the baby doesn't understand it, you know your stance if you're okay with this or if you think it's just wrong. You're welcome, conflicted youth.

I don't normally talk about the devil but I certainly tell babies that they stink and I openly tell them when they're funny looking because they don't understand.

#57, pshaw, that's nothing. Whenever I see a very cute baby, I go up to it and tell it I was also a very cute baby. The moms take one look at me and start crying!

The acceptable term is "mentally retarded." And people get offended these days when you use the word "retarded" to describe someone or something that is not literally mentally retarded. And yes, many, perhaps even most, mentally retarded people understand what the word "retarded" means, and realize when people are making fun of them. There are many varieties of mental retardation, and some of them are actually almost normal, and you wouldn't notice that there is any

77- Mentally retarded is not the politically correct term anymore. It is intellectually challenged/ intellectually disabled.

That's one thing I hate about this website, ask a simple question and everyone thumbs you down :/

#90, also it causes us to bring back some of the venerable old words for stupid people that all seemed to get replaced by the R-word. Welcome back, Moron, Idiot, Dolt, Imbecile, Dunce, Oaf, Fool, Dumb-ass, Mouth-Breathing, Knuckle-Dragger. (I did that all without consulting a thesaurus. Feel free to add more,. . ., you dunces ;) )

The term "mentally retarded" isn't really used anymore, if you work with anyone with disabilities. The newest term I've heard is "intellectually disabled." Most previous terms have fallen out of fashion because of the stigma involved.

86, No she didn't have aspbergers or any other form of autism. She didn't have trouble socializing with people. She was actually quite friendly. She definitely had below average intelligence, though. It simply wasn't immediately apparent. 93, I didn't realize they'd stopped using the term "mentally retarded" in professional circles. I just thought it was considered offensive when the word "mentally" was dropped. Learn something new everyday, I guess.

Wait wait wait...I get THREE warnings for complete bullshit reasons and THIS DOESN'T get moderated?! Bravo, FML staff and moderators, Bravo indeed you fucking r-words...

@86 That's kind of what I was thinking too; the girl sounds more like she had a mild/high-functioning form of autism. I might very well be a little autistic (high-functioning/Aspergers) and seem to be fairly "normal" but I'm emotionally immature and get upset/frustrated easily. I also don't always know how to behave and get confused easily.

I figure that as long as it's used in place of the word stupid and not used in reference to anyone mentally handicapped, there's nothing wrong with it.

No it doesn't destroy the lenses lol. they are just hard to remove. All you need is a little dish soap and they come right off.

Wipe it of with a cotton wipe dipped in rubbing alcohol, then rinse it with soap and water. Use a soft cloth and be careful not to scratch the lense. And don't expect the store to give you a new pair for something stupid you did.

As someone who works in the industry, that may not work. The coatings they put over most lenses can actually be rather sensitive and if the product is left on the lenses there is a chance for permanent damage/spots. Definitely give it a try. Its best to apply hairspray without your glasses because it can ruin plastic on a frame.The best thing I've seen: a man tried to use industrial stove cleaner on his glasses.

I realized it said glasses after a bit, but by then FML glitched on me and wouldn't let me get back on to edit my comment. Ah well.

Maybe contacts would be a better fit for you. Unless you get hair spray on them. On a side note, when you get new glasses, they give you spray and sometimes a nice little towel. Use them. Works for your TV too, in case you were thinking of bringing that back due to spots as well.
