I have to say that I think these are a really good idea:
The Rotterdam Zoo is giving away cardboard glasses that make it appear that you're looking off to one side; these are gorilla-viewing glasses, meant to avoid incidents in which gorillas attack visitors for making eye contact with them. The glasses' introduction follows an attack on a woman by an escaped gorilla; the specs are sponsored by a local health-insurance company."You lookin' at me? You lookin' at me?! I don't see any other gorillas around here so you must be lookin' at me!" Of course those on the political right will just accuse the zoo officials of appeasing the gorilla terrorists but what can you do?
