Neck-ties are unhealthy

2003-07-29 15:09:27.780759+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Why do politicians wear ties? To keep the foreskin pulled back. (Sorry, now that I've discovered there are some good lawyers (even when their websites disappear unexpectedly) I'm picking on new demographics). /. points to a BBC article reporting that neck-ties can cause increases in pressure in the eye, a condition whic hhas been linked to glaucoma. Unfortunately, I've searched the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary pages and I don't see any mention of this study there or at the American Journal of Opthalmology.
