Just never feed them after midnight.

In which timezone? Drinking Beverage

Local solar nadir.

That's what gives people so many problems; they don't realize how that varies from the clock time.

Plus isn't it always after midnight?

The problem is that it's not a tractable problem.

Bad vision is caused when the eye lens can't focus incident rays onto the retina properly; near/farsightedness being when it works for some incident angles but not others.

In theory it's possible to bend the outgoing light rays from the screen in such a way as to compensate for the eye's inability to bend them properly.

But it's impossible to "fix" with software; a monitor can't bend light. So what you'd need is some sort of variable optical density interface fitted over the hardware . Basically a big adjustable lens over the screen itself... which would be really finicky, really complicated, and really expensive.

But in theory it's possible!

It's just that by the time such a thing would be practical we'll probably be able to grow new eyes in a jar anyway.

I would like to sign up for new eyes, please.

You should have responded with something like "I just got my test results back...we need to talk."

Finding time to do productive things.
Between video games, sleeping, watching TV shows (started watching Mad Men, love it), watching movies, dicking around and twiddling my thumbs it doesn't leave much time for doing productive things.
It's tough.

Within the next 48 hours, I'm going to have to write at least five essays, three of which will be done within a three hour time-frame; the other two will be within a four-hour time-frame, but will have to be done after a full biology test probably giving me less than an hour for each.

Fuckin' First World education.
