I know, I know, that sounds ridiculous. However, when's the last time you simply saw something that almost brought you to tears. No, I am not talking about that time you watched 'The Notebook' and had to fight back the waterworks in front of whatever girl you were attempting to penetrate. I am talking about just simply laying eyes on something amazing? This guy went from black and white to a full spectrum, and it was under the gorgeous conditions of a sunset no less. The only personal experience that I can think of that even mildly relates is when I saw high definition television for the first time, and that doesn't even compare. The first three minutes I was on the verge of setting out to find glasses that made me colorblind, so I could wear them for 5-10 years, then get the same emotional experience this guy had. That is, until something happened...
That something is the 4 minute mark of the video when this guy says "It's not surprising anymore, I am getting used to it". Hmm, no thanks, I think I'll keep this perfect vision after all. What an indictment of modern society. Nothing is ever good enough. Nothing is satisfying after you already have it at your disposal. This guy couldn't see FUCKING COLORS for 20-something years of his life and then he finally does and four minutes later he's already over it. He went from the verge of full on hysterics to apathetic in the time it would take for a single lap dance. It's unbelievable how quickly things go from luxuries to necessities. Remember when you were clicking away at your Blackberry like it was the greatest invention of all time? Then you got an iPhone and you were ready to punt that Blackberry into oncoming traffic? Shit, if I could grant Stevie Wonder his eyesight he would probably be bitching about how ugly everyone is by the second day. Put me in front of the most beautiful sunset in the world and I would be ready to go grab a drink before the sun fully disappeared behind the horizon. That's just how things are now-a-days. We have short attention spans and take everything for granted. Look no further than the fact that I couldn't even be bothered to finish a video that I was set to pattern my life after just moments before. It's sad, but it's true. If things aren't brand spanking new then they have already gotten old. Even something as incredible as fully functional sight.
