"Don't Panic" sunglasses For The 21st Century

Zaphod Beeblebrox had a good way to deal with panic - sunglasses that went dark at the first sign of danger - what you can't see, can't scare you.

In this day and age, when society seems ever more determined to view the world from the perspective of the paedophile, we need a new version of the Joo Janta 200's. Glasses that go dark at the first sight of moral panic or other people's children.

Quite ironic really. In the 19th century, children were to be seen but not heard, in the 20th century fads for liberation of all kinds meant that children were not only to be seen but heard as well - sometimes even listened to. Now that some view the liberation struggles of the 20th century as a somewhat regrettable mistake, it is only appropriate that we have reached the 21st century, an age in which children may be heard, but not seen.

Then there's the 'she'll be right mates' - those who wear the rose-coloured glasses of apathy :)

What about that Slartibartfast guy? He said he liked 'doing the fiddly bits' around the fjords. Let's get him!

Now all we have to do is get Conroy to learn to fly.
All you have to do is throw yourself at the earth... and miss.
Conroy misses the mark everytime he opens his mouth so he must have the knack, and if he doesn't?
Well it's no great loss as far as the cybersociety is concerned.
