If my opponent wants to stare at me, he/she can enjoy looking at me with these on:

Yes! Tape is completely offensive!!!

(But using rubber glue is acceptable.)

My opponent would only come unglued, wondering why Clint was talking to that empty chair.......

I rarely stare at my opponent, because I don't have time or care to know what he looks like. Or she. Think about it this way. If you stare at your opponent, it's like a weakness. You're trying to intimidate them, which does almost nothing against higher rated players and is useless against lower rated players because odds are, the lower rated player is already intimidated. I rather just stare at the board or anywhere other than my opponent. I'd rather them think I am soulless or don't respect them enough to give them the humanity of a stare.

 

I've actually had an IM come up to me after a game (I wasn't playing him) and tell me that I'd be frightening to play against because I show no emotion during the game. Which is quite ironic, because I tend to show a lot of emotion when not in a chess game. He said I never looked at the opponent and kept my eyes on the board when I was at the board (I have a tendency to get up a lot and check out other games). I used to wear a ballcap when playing chess games so my opponent couldn't see my eyes or where at the board they were staring. Nowadays I clasp both hands together and put that on my forehead to act as a makeshift ballcap to cover my eyes.
