Whenever I log in to Yahoo! Mail, there is a selection of the day’s “Top Stories” in headline form. They’re clearly designed to be intriguing1 and they sometimes make me laugh:
I don’t know why I found that funny. Maybe it was the presence of “balls” and “paedophile” in the same sentence.

It says that people can now have an operation which will give them better than 20/20 vision, which they call “HD vision”. Leaving aside the inapplicability of the term “HD” to eyes, it follows that if people can fully appreciate HD videos (which I think we can), then we already have better than HD vision!
It’s just silly.
