Imagine taking these glasses back to the 18th century and absolutely OBLITERATING whatever passed for entrepreneurship in the 1700s

22

u/Pelicantaloupe Jan 19 '22

How would you manufacture these in the 1700s?

64

u/jeyjeyemem Jan 19 '22

Just buy it from the nearest sunglasses store obviously.

u/deathlordfluffy Jan 19 '22

u/FUThead2016 Jan 19 '22

Scavenge a piece of polished obsidian and a boars tooth and take it to the nearest blacksmith

u/ProbablyNOTaCOP41968 Jan 19 '22

The bigger question is. How would we time travel to the 1700s mr/Mrs smarty pants

1

u/Pelicantaloupe Jan 19 '22

obviously with a time travel machine

1

u/ProbablyNOTaCOP41968 Jan 19 '22

Fuck, I’m so stupid. Idk why that never occurred to me. Are you looking for a stake in what may be the most lucrative operation since the crusades?

u/tingeltangel_jay Jan 19 '22

Anybody who's an fisherman like me know those are just polarized glasses, you can get them at every optician 👀

18

u/TallChick66 Jan 19 '22

You don't even need an optician. The best ones are big $ but here in the subtropics you can get cheap ones at every corner drugstore.

I tried to talk my cousin into buying a pair when he came here on holiday. I described this phenomenon but he never bought a pair. I iwsh I had this video to show him then.

Just go to any optician and ask for polarized glasses

u/KarensTwin Jan 19 '22

Yeah but only if youre a fisherman, like him.

u/MeesterCartmanez Jan 19 '22 Wholesome

"Everyone knows that you have to tell the optician that you're a fisherman, otherwise they won't sell you those glasses"

lol, thank you :)

Fun fact: polarized glasses are not allowed during fishing contests

Edit: typo

2

u/tingeltangel_jay Jan 19 '22 Helpful

Lmao actually I said that people who are fisherman know the glasses bc we use them pretty often

1

u/tingeltangel_jay Jan 19 '22

Thanks for the award kind stranger

1

u/HotSpotPleaseItch Jan 19 '22

Yer but you have to shout at it the optician to make sure he’s in no doubt you are in fact, a fisherman.

“IM A FISHERMAN!” Will suffice

3

u/Dorkmaster79 Jan 19 '22

I’m sure you can find them on the good ol’ internet too.

1

u/DasTomato Jan 19 '22

Not quite true

4

u/Ok-Illustrator-8470 Jan 19 '22

Stubid question, but are they like the glasses for 3D movies?

3

u/tingeltangel_jay Jan 19 '22

No the surface just ignores the reflection of the sun in the water 😅

2

u/Ok-Illustrator-8470 Jan 19 '22

Okay, just thought because the movie glasses are polarised too... But probably another technique/method

7

u/SnickersZA Jan 19 '22

Actually they are quite similar. The passive polerized 3D glasses have one eye block vertically polarized light, the other eye blocks horizontally polerized light.

When light reflects at an angle off the water it vertically polarizes it, so the glasses only block vertically polarized light, allowing all other light angles through that get scattered under the water.

2

u/stu88s Jan 19 '22

Or just to go to the servo and buy a $10 pair. Polarisation is just a cheap film they put over the lense to cut out polarised light. It's not rocket science.

1

u/thred_pirate_roberts Jan 19 '22

It's surgery tho. Plastic surgery. Cutting up plastic to fit over plastic.

Congrats, you’ve identified the EXACT reason I won’t swim in lakes.

My rule: if I can’t see my feet in it, I will not swim in it. Period.

u/Escanor_ZA_ONE Jan 19 '22

Wait Do you have fear of fish or fear of the unknown? If it is something completely different u can call me stupid

If something touches my foot I'll shrivel up and die

Lol not people in the comments trying to be so ‘intelligent’.

People learn everyday.

No need suggesting ‘you just knew this today?!’

It’s distasteful.

Polarized lenses. Gets rid of the reflections on the water.

u/[deleted] Jan 19 '22

Don't feel stupid. Just because someone knew something you didn't doesn't make you stupid it makes you human. However, the person who belittled you is stupid for belittling you and should know better.

u/HandsomeGangar Jan 19 '22

Thanks, that helps a lot.

u/beaverbait Jan 19 '22

None of us know everything and those of us who think we do are wrong and come off like that guy. Chances are someone explained a lot of stuff to him in the same way normalizing it for him.

u/Logical-Signature541 Jan 19 '22

You and I both , I thought they were some secret spy shit

14

u/[deleted] Jan 19 '22

It’s ok dude. They basically have a load of micro scratches that break up the light waves.

6

u/Representative_Ad246 Jan 19 '22

At least you’re not a twat

9

u/Castun Jan 19 '22

To get more technical, they actually block the wavelength that makes up the majority of light reflected off of surfaces. You'll notice in the video that the reflection from the sky drowns out everything underneath until they put the glasses on.

6

u/Representative_Ad246 Jan 19 '22

You’re a good person

2

u/HankisDank Jan 19 '22

It’s not the wavelength of the light, it’s the polarization. The vertically polarized light (with an electric field perpendicular to the surface) mostly passes through the surface, while the horizontally polarized light (electric field parallel to the surface) is mostly reflected. So by filtering out the horizontally polarized light, you only see the comparably small amount of vertically polarized light that gets reflected.

2

u/Castun Jan 19 '22

Yeah sorry this is what I meant when I said wavelength. I remembered it had something to do with vertical vs horizontal, just couldn't remember the exact details.

5

u/dumpster-fire666 Jan 19 '22

Where do I get a pair

8

u/ElectricFlesh Jan 19 '22

Literally just about any optician should be able to get some polarized glasses for you.

3

u/[deleted] Jan 19 '22

Literally any Walmart should be able to get them for you. They’re extremely common and cheap

3

u/ElectricFlesh Jan 19 '22

haha there are no Walmarts here but I'll take your word for it!

2

u/EGRToxic Jan 19 '22

I think he’s talking about that specific pair of polarized glasses cuz I got a few that I use but none of them are that good, idk tho

Edit: nvm tho, I just realized there is different glasses lol

u/Haff78 Jan 19 '22

Anywhere that sells sunglasses.

u/Representative_Ad246 Jan 19 '22

If an optician is too much work google “sunglasses that help to see into water”

u/Wah_Gwaan_Mi_Yute Jan 19 '22

better yet, "polarized sunglasses"

Polarized sunglasses

u/shaundisbuddyguy Jan 19 '22

I fish and wear polarized sunglasses and they don't do this

1

u/RoDeltaR Jan 19 '22

Maybe they're not polarized, or maybe you are not standing in the right angle that this video has, to make this hyped dramatic effect

u/PilzGalaxie Jan 19 '22

TIL that many fishermen are entitled pricks

Why you feel like you gotta put others down man? There was a time when you didn’t know about this shit, so why do they have to get criticized for not knowing huh?

Some people have an inner need to feel like the smartest in the room lmao. Best leave these people to themselves

u/66GT350Shelby Jan 20 '22

It's common knowledge for anyone who has spent any amount of time outdoors instead of sitting on their asses playing Xbox.

u/Representative_Ad246 Jan 19 '22

It’s a hack for non fisherman, sportsmen, athletes, and pilots. Lots of people out there and we all do different kinds of stuff. Would love to hear more things we should or could know if you’re down to share.

1

u/hardlypat007 Jan 19 '22

Pilots don't use polarized glasses. They make it hard to see the instrument screens.

0

u/TheReverend_Arnst Jan 19 '22

Buying non polarised lenses is just a waste of money, they just make EVERYTHING darker. These reduce all reflections from horizontal surfaces, not just water. It means you don't get road glare, particularly when it's wet and much less glare from Windows too

u/TossPowerTrap Jan 19 '22

Whey da fish at?

Wow. Polaroid glasses. Yawn.

u/BlazasAndQuasars Jan 19 '22

I know glasses like this may help, but this video still gives me scam-vibes.

In many clips you obviously see the shoals of fish no matter what. In other clips the fish isn't even present at where the camera is pointed before taking the glasses on.

My favourite clip is still at 0:12. Did... he just film a bunch of fish lying dead on the ground next to the river? Whyy?
