How To Make Eyeglasses From Scratch

“With some guidance from Dr. Lewis Dartnell, I collected sand, limestone, and hardwood ashes to melt down into the glass. Then I figured out how to grind the lenses down to the correct curvature to match my prescription. I also made the frames for them out of a tree.”

Not surprisingly, this is an extremely complicated thing to do properly.

“The transition from caterpillar to butterfly is a process that consists of four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Observe one caterpillar as it developments into a gorgeous winged insect.”

And there you go! Your Friday is all set!

See you in seven days everybody.
