From your perspective, the numbers ARE ACTUALLY GETTING SMALLER! My theory is that if the universe is expanding as the scientists tell us, then everything is stretching out.... getting farther away with every moment. That's why you keep needing stronger lenses, just like astronomers need bigger telescopes to see things farther away.I've realized that this deal of getting older is a PITA!
I'm either going to have to get new bifocals,,,,
or a hydrometer the size of a baseball bat.
Dang, those numbers keep getting smaller and harder to read.
