On Wednesday, Google put out an open call for submissions to a little contest. The winners of the contest would qualify to be one of the first people in the world to own a pair of Google Glass, the next-generation smart-glasses that should be released later this year. All a contestant had to do was log into Twitter or Google+ and write a message with the hashtag #ifihadglass, explaining what they would do with the G-Glasses.
A day later, there have been some amazing entries -- some funny, some stupid, some inspiring, some mildly pornographic. We've collected our favorites below, with the hopes to put our weight on the scale and get some of these folks a Glass device of their own. They've all earned it, in their own special ways.
Don't let us down, Google. Get these people some Glass!

It's very easy to imagine Barney Stinson owning a Google Glass.
THIS IS A GOOD THING, EM
Let's help this kid cheat his way to college!
He doesn't *quite* get it.
The acclaimed DJ/Producer tweeted this. I have no idea what it means.
Can you really deny this guy?
But be careful when you mosh.
I'm calling his bluff. EAT VASELINE, GREENMAN!
How cool would this be?
I've thought about it, and I want it.
...at the same time?!
Am I the only one strangely enticed by this?
Imagine the possibilities.
Anyone know if these things are fireproof? Also, bonus points for cat.
