Word of the Day B'arba Eynayim

Israelis don't have spectacles in mind when they talk about four eyes.

If you were to hear someone call out "Yo! Four-eyes!", if you weren't wearing glasses, you probably wouldn't turn around. But Israelis do the math a bit differently. In Hebrew, the four eyes ("arba eynayim") in question aren't two eyes plus two lenses but two of my eyes plus two of yours.
