    "Also, why don't the characters just close one eye at a time?"

    Have you ever tried that? Every time I do my eyes start watering, then burning, to the point where my subconscious takes over and I start blinking anyway.

    That said, it's certainly odd that the characters don't at least try it. Though really this is all armchair Angel-surviving.

    Sorry to double post, but I can't believe I've never thought about this before now: how well do you have to be able to see an Angel before it become stone? In addition to it being impossible (for me) to do the one-eyed tango for anything more than a minute or so, trying it blurs my eyesight to the point where I can barely see.

    Does that mean an Angel could get me if I were crying hard enough? If I'd gotten Vaseline in my eyes? Could I stop an Angel if its shadow passes into sight? If I saw steam rising off it in the cold (or what have you?)

    These are the things that keep me awake at night.
