2.) You're a shoe in to be cast in any movie involving Greek mythology.
3.) Your lack of depth perception means you never have a turn to drive in your carpooling group.
See, many of life's genetic defects have bright sides that you never thought about before. Unless you're a Nickelback fan as that mutated gene is born of pure evil. Sorry.
