Some are smarter. Maybe that's why he doesn't seem to like them.


And this one is waayyy far out.

I was in Toronto during the eclipse but we only got ~75% coverage.

I saw the eclipse and learned that by placing an object in front of the sun as large as the moon you create a big bore.

I saw a video on youtube that proved 100% that the eclipse was a hoax.

When I say I "saw" it, I mean I just saw it in the list of recommended videos. I didn't not click on it or visit the channel or anything else like that, because I didn't want to add to some idiot's views. I'm sure he/she/it is trying to make a few cents off of it. Don't wanna help with that.

It's an image of an "angel", apparently. I saw it by chance on another website that was talking about angels, so I googled it for more information.

I get bored sometimes....

Good news, everyone!

Eclipse 2017: Doctors surprised by few reports of eye injuries

The article has a link to an online Amsler grid eye test, if anyone's interested: http://www.allaboutvision.com/condition ... r-grid.htm

Huh. I seem to have a minor blind spot in the upper left quadrant of the chart. When did that happen? Oh wait! That's where the light fixture is on my wall behind the computer! :lol:




...I hope that's not permanent.
