X-ray vision memories

When I was growing up comic book advertisementsxray vision seemed more entertaining than the super hero adventures or Richie Rich chuckles that the medium was intended for. I felt like the fascinating world of Sea monkeys and magic trick gadgets held more promise than an imaginary story line that never seemed to prove itself to be even close to believable in my real world.

I had a long list of favorites, but the one that remained on top was the mythical x-ray glasses. I know what you're thinking...male puberty plus x-ray glasses equal a pretty generic boyhood dream, but my motivation for such a high functioning device was purely scientific, back when the very thought of girls mysteriously caused me to freeze up and hide.
