Blotting Out the Sun

Other than footwear, sunglasses are the only accessory that perform a functional service.  Jewelry, nail polish, and makeup are all nice when they're there, but jewelry doesn't keep us warm in cold weather, nail polish doesn't protect us from the elements, and other than giving an extra boost of self confidence, makeup doesn't have any real health benefits.  Sunglasses, however, protect our eyes and save our precious visions from being harmed by only the most omnipresent, skin-burning, retina-melting, vital ingredient of our universe: the sun.  They also look pretty cool.
