So what's my biggest fear or weakness? What scares the shit out of me?
I wear glasses. I am horribly myopic to the point that without corrective lenses I can see clearly only about 8 inches in front of me. Genuine coke bottles! Typically I wear contacts and have several pairs of glasses on hands.
But contacts eventually break down and get rips, pin holes or rough edges. And they have an expiration date, wherein the plastics also get weaker the older they get, even unopened, so they don't last as long and would be kinda worthless after 10-15 years of stockpiling. And they have maintantence issues with cleaning, solution, etc.
And glasses get scratched up, break or are easily ripped off your face. Plus they impede your vision during rain and get fogged up easily (Try wearing glasses in a gas mask sometime)
This concerns me to the point that I have seriously considered Lasik, because this is my one big Achilles' Heel in life. Especially when it comes to night vision, I'd be absolutely useless without glasses on or contacts in. I could see well enough during the day to drive a car, but not well enough to scout the horizon or shoot and actually hit something.
So, what is your Achille's Heel - what is your one horrible weakness that may end up causing your demise or swing the advantage against you in a disaster or Zpoc?
