Because the pics of Tara Reid are disturbing.



Anyway, I checked and I am an hour away from the totality of the eclipse, but I am smack dab in the middle of the next one seven years later.

My kiddo will be 21 that year, whoot!







Does make one wonder if it's a galactic ATTACK HERE notice

I was driving along today and I remembered that the last solar eclipse in India had 17 people go blind/partially blind from looking at the sun. I was wondering when I would start seeing the warnings, and I get home and here they are.

Anyone wanna take bets on the number that at least partially blind themselves? I'm going with 8.

Wow. it looks like "X" marks the spot. You sure you're not being targeted by some master-trans-galatic species?

Anyway, I like the number "2" myself.

Amazon recalls potentially hazardous solar eclipse glasses

"As customers prepare for next week’s total solar eclipse, Amazon has issued a recall for some of the eclipse glasses sold on its internet marketplace, saying it was unable to confirm whether the protective ware was made by a recommended manufacturer.

NASA and the American Astronomical Society have been urging solar gazers to use glasses engineered by reputable vendors that carry the international safety standard number “ISO 12312-2.”

Eclipse glasses made under these standards block 100,000 times more light than ordinary sunglasses. Even brief, unprotected glimpses of the sun can cause blurry vision or blindness. The American Astronomical Society has spotted counterfeit eclipse glasses on Amazon in the past."

====

As I have suggested (humorously) you're a complete idiot if you try and view this eclipse. Not tinfoil hat paranoia, just basic caveat emptor. Have you ever returned something because it didn't work the way you thought it would? Did you ever buy something that just wasn't like the sales pitch? Yeah, who hasn't. I love my eyes, I love seeing exactly like I see now - "no touching guns."

My old man just told me today he's going down there with my step mom and they bought glasses online to view it.

I told him the same thing.... there is no way in hell I would look at that sun. Especially with some cheap glasses likely made in China. I don't watch traditional TV, so I can only hope there are tons of warnings against using these things everyday on the news and everywhere else.

Good luck people. I hope it's worth it. I'll wait until I can watch it safely on youtube a few hours later.

But then you won't know if it was faked - like the Moon Landing. I nobody ever looks out their window and only uses the fake window of TV Monitor, they'll be more gullible to all the nonsense that is fed to them.

I'm not going to be around where the total eclipse happens, so I'm just going to see the partial. I've seen that before through a silhouette box contraption that my dad built for me and my brothers when we were kids. I'll go outside while it's happening, I'm just not looking up with or without the glasses.

I think what would be cooler is being under it for the few minutes it's a total eclipse and just see how eerie the darkness is. My old man said he remembered how all the animals get quiet during an eclipse like they know something is up. Then we got on the topic of Asimov's first story Nightfall. People are already pretty nuts though, so if a bunch of people under the full eclipse started murdering each other and burning shit down I guess we'd just call it another day in 2017.


My dad's no dummy. I'm sure he did all the research he could and knows what he bought. I just don't trust anybody saying that it would work.

I've read that some welder's glass is the shiznit. #14 or darker. If you don't have a welder's mask, you can buy the glass at any welding supply store.

I've heard that some of the glasses being sold for this aren't up to snuff.

I saw the last one from here back in '79, through a telescope. It was amazing. Not total, but still really cool.

Again, won't be total here, but close.

Yeah... welder's mask is a good idea. I joked with my dad that it was the only way you'd get me to look at the sun. Sure as shit ain't going to look through some 5 dollar cardboard glasses off of Amazon.com.

I can't remember when the one I saw was. If I had to guess it was in '85.

How did you look through the telescope? Did you have a welder's mask on?




I was just thinking that the Government should just mail certified glasses to everyone. Probably would end up saving a ton of money in the long run on disability payments. I'm not joking.....

It had an appropriate filter. It looked green, like a welder's mask makes welding look, but I was looking right at it.

Not I, but doesn't shock me. I know of cruises, airplane rides, mountain top parties... I'm planning to be on a lake in N. Ga.

To be honest, I can't think of too many brides who'd want to be upstaged by the sun and moon at her wedding.

That is blasphemy!!
Everybody KNOWS that solar energy has no effect upon temperature on Earth's surface. It cannot trump the cows farting and man-made emmissions which strictly control Global Climate.

If what you are implying was true, then the wide variations of Sol's energy output would be the cause of gradual temperature shift on every planet of our solar system, which is duplicated here on Earth - and we know that only manmade efforts effect Climate Change on every planet in our solar system at the same time, including those on the opposite side of Sol from Earth.

Heretic.

It was interesting to see the moon kinda pop outta seemingly nowhere with the glasses on, without them on you really couldn't tell anything was happening. It got dim...kinda like it might rain... for a while, then the wind stopped completely, it got brighter and the wind picked up slightly. It was still so hot outside, we left my gran's early because we were getting nauseous.. She had hummingbird feeders out and the hummingbirds were going crazy drinking with all the heat. They were more fascinating than the eclipse.

We misheard a start time of 1:30, but it started about 12:45. Guess that was about the apex of the event...I was surprised that it lasted about two hours, thought it would take less than that.

Anyway, hype over...everybody go back to work! Save the glasses for seven years from now...(yeah, right...mine won't last the rest of the year, prolly.)

It was a partly-cloudy morning here as well, and I was busy walking our new (formerly stray) dog with the "dog pack" (group of people who walk dogs together). I even mentioned ... "oh, this is the day of the eclipse" when it was just beginning ... we looked up, saw clouds, and forgot all about it. Didn't even notice any special darkness, maybe because here it was only 70% eclipse and 80% cloudy.

But I'll bet the total eclipse was awesome.

What I thought was interesting was that even though the sun was about 80% covered, it was still abut 80% of original daylight. Even the pictures I've seen in Ky were still bright enough to read by...

Y'all know you can peek at the sun for about a dozen seconds or so without permanent damage, right? About the 30-40 seconds is when it starts frying cells (depending on the person, age, health ect) and by 100 seconds you've done permanent damage to the retina. It's ok to peek, not to stare.

It's not all that big a deal to glance at the sun. Even kooky Bill Nye did it, while covering the eclipse, before totality. Watch the ABC special on the coverage, and damn near every reporter, meteorologist, astronomer, etc... who was talking on camera did a brief quick glance up.
