BRAINBUSTER: According to a recent study, the smarter you are, the more likely you are to wear...WHAT?

ANSWER: glasses


A new study just proved that the nerds-wear-glasses stereotype is actually DEAD ON.

Researchers in Germany studied 4,658 people and found the smarter you are, the more likely you are to need glasses.

They used people's level of education as a way to measure intelligence, and found that 24% of high school dropouts are nearsighted and wear glasses . . . versus 35% of high school graduates and 53% of college graduates.

The researchers think it's a sign your eyesight is affected by how you spend your time . . . educated people spend more time staring at books and computer screens, which hurts their vision.
