    that if you walk backwards into the house your glasses will not fog up?
    I personally havnt tried this but yesterday we had a house full of people and we were getting the ones that wore glasses to walk backwards into the house and most of them had no fogging on the lenses or just a little.....even the people that dont wear glasses were trying it with someone elses glasses...okay go try it and tell me if it worked for you???

    I almost *always* walk backwards into the chicken coop, because of having things in my hands and pushing the door open with my back, and my glasses have never failed to fog up. So even apart from the physics end of things, I am going to say 'no, it does not work' [​IMG]

    (It is really annoying to have to do all my chicken chores with my glasses off. Things like filling a feeder are not a problem, but telling whehter that blurry thing off in the corner is a floor egg or a feather, or whethre I remembered to re-latch the pen door... [​IMG])

    You can get anti-fog stuff for your glasses tho. I used to use stuff originally purchased for snorkeling (facemask) til it ran out. Nowadays I think they market some specifically for glasses (you can get it for your car windshield too) but just never think of looking for it [​IMG]

    if you put contacts on they dont fog up either.
    I wont wear my glasses this time of the year for that reason> I have to be deathly ill to be caught wearing my glasses out of the house.

    Plus I really cant imagine walking backwards into every building I enter.
    I would have the entire office laughing at me, especially after i fall on my butt
