I made a discovery on the perpetual problem of wearing glasses and headphones 
at the same time -- the discomfort you get where the headphones press on your 
ears, which press on your glasses behind your ear.

I have a pair of glasses I really like(d), which was relatively new, but one of 
the "arms" broke off -- not the screw falling out so that it could be repaired, 
but it actually broke off, so it's basically unrepairable.  The lenses are 
still unscratched, etc.  Bummer.

Though this is not true of all pairs, this pair actually stays pretty straight 
on my face with just one "arm."  I found this means there is no headphone/ear 
fatigue on the side with no "arm."  If I had two pairs, one with an arm on one 
side and the other with the arm on the other side, I could swap them 
occasionally, and cut in half the time that either ear has to endure this 

I suppose a pince-nez type of glasses would totally solve it, though perhaps 
with an increase in "nose fatigue."  hi.
