When you look for a bargain or a job you look through the ads, but you cant see through them.

i'm not quite sure- if you hold the sheet with the ads up to the light, you can sort of see through them, but not completely.

btw: not what i have :huh:

also for #004: true, but not my answer

The last time I checked, I couldn't see through a telescope, as it is a solid object. But, you can look through it's lenses when it is held to the eye.

Can you see through these? Maybe I just have bad eyesight, but they look fairly solid to me, and they seem to photograph well. You can, however, look through them.

Credit for posting this in 7 mins - star worthy I am sure. Not SOLID though!

how can you look without seeing and vice versa and versa vice too - semantics ( why is semantics plural?)

Something else bugged me, radio telescopes and electron microscopes are only viewed from a sceen and not directly looked at/through. These are therefore excluded anyway, Hubble inclusive - is not looked through or viewe other than by computer re-imaging for the human eye.

Still need convincing - sorry!
