Glasses on a baby?

BabySharon&Connor

Baby Sharon and Connor

When I really looked at this picture, I had a "whattheheck" moment.

A baby wearing glasses? Is that even possible?

You can't give an eyetest to a baby, since they can't give you the verbal feedback necessary to tailor the lenses to your vision properly.

In addition, the focal length of a baby's vision isn't that great anyway, since they're yet to develop proper adult vision.

[chuckle] Remember what I said about hyperbole? It's not just verbal and narrative, it can be visual too. In this case, Sharon is relating a memory and we see it in a flashback. So Connor has probably had glasses so long its as far back as Sharon can remember, thus in her memory he always had them.
It's actually a regularly used device in both literature and cinematic known as "unreliable narrative/narrator". Especially when there are more than one character who can refute events, often in voice-over, often prompting a revision of the related scene.
So I'd say this is a classic "unreliable memory". It'd be different if we were shown a photograph of them as babies and he was wearing them. --Love Robin (talk) 23:52, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

We care. We like the show and are taking the time and effort to present it here on this wikia as if it happened in real life, what we call In-Universe Perspective, or POV for short.
If your attitude is one of "who cares", might I suggest you take it to some other wikia. --Love Robin (talk) 13:48, March 15, 2017 (UTC)

Is Mackenzie a common Canadian surname?

Although no official confirmation has ever been given, it has been stated that Emma's last name is also Mackenzie.

Since Stoked is also a Canadian-centric show, it got me wondering if that was a common surname in Canada.--Buckmana (talk) 08:38, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Aside from its native Scotland, it is a fairly common surname in Australia, Britain, and Canada, or as I like to say: "the ABC". --Love Robin (talk) 12:24, January 20, 2014 (UTC)
