Do Not Want: Jawbone Sunglasses

One of my dad’s main hobbies when I was growing up was collecting and cleaning skulls, so I probably feel a bit more comfortable with bones, teeth, and cartilage than the average person (my brothers and I used to play with one particular manta ray exoskeleton as if it were a GI Joe doll).
