However it was also stated that whilst doing the research a fellow member was even contaminated with Staphylococcus most common cause of staph infections.

    Every time I go see a 3D movie, they give me a new pair of glasses in a sealed wrapper. Where are these people going that they're getting someone's old used glasses?

    Hey, allot of the times, after movies, they have a recyling bin for your glasses, all they do, is take those glasses and repackage them in plastic. They do not always give new glasses out.

    It looks like the glasses you use are all new, but they just take the old ones, have 15 year olds who work there give them a quick wipe down, then give them to the next movie goer.
