Eclipse Warning: "1000s Of People Will Damage or Entirely Lose Their Eyesight Tomorrow"

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

With a rare solar eclipse approaching and millions of people flocking to locations around the United States that are in or near the path of totality, some may not realize that the celestial event poses an extreme danger.

As noted by Karl Denninger at The Market Ticker, while the August 21st solar eclipse may be a once in a lifetime sight to see, the actual act of seeing it may cause serious damage to your eyesight:

You’ve probably seen various sites talking about safety issues.  The issues are real, and what I’m sharing with you on this post is important.  

 

Read it, understand it, do not believe for one second that any of this can be trifled with and if you have young people around you make damn sure they understand all of this as well.

 

There will be thousands of people who will either damage or entirely lose their eyesight tomorrow and there is exactly zero that a doc in the ER or anywhere else will be able to do for you if you wind up screwing yourself by being ignorant, stupid or both.

 

Please do not be one of the people that have that happen.

 

Denninger’s full warning can be found here.

Because the eyes do not have pain receptors, if you are looking at the eclipse you will not know that your eyes are literally burning.

There will be no forewarning that you are about to lose your eyesight. And there will be nothing a doctor can do to restore your vision once the damage has been done.

Sun glasses will not help.

Only a commercial grade visual-rated solar filter will safely protect the eyes and as reported earlier this week, even those have been counterfeited and sold at places like Amazon.com.

We urge our readers to speak with friends and family about this very serious threat to your vision, especially if you have young children.

I sungaze, so my eyes are adjusted.  But I looked directly at the eclipse today and I am okay. Less fear and more pay attention to your body and eyes.  Grow up and pay attention to your body.

Shouldn't it be safe enough now to look at the sun - with all the global warming crap in the atmosphere to absorb the rays?

And does anyone, anywhere, really know of anyone who went blind from looking at an eclipse?

Doom and gloom Karl lives very near my lair... in the same place they won't let school kids go outside during the eclipse. Probably because there isn't a standardized test for it.

I got this far....."Because the eyes do not have pain receptors,....  "  Say What? There is probably nothing else on the human body with a higher concentration of pain receptors, than the eye!  Except for maybe NickPeeMe's clitoris

Really! Nobody of you have ever try to look the sun! Common every single kid know how to make a pinhole with his palm!
Otherwise I already told, all of you Trump voters are already blind, right! I told you Trump election will backfire, you can get elected but you can't govern without the public support of media and urban elite! You should have read the Machiavelli in highschool, as we did in Norway!

Now after the eclipse is over there will be a lot of cheap crap paper sunglasses left over.  We should hoard them up for the next eclipse so our grandchildren can make big cash a hundred years from now.  Always think ahead.

Have anyone living out there (marked coast -to- coast) seen this eclipse?Please post something here. It's has been anticipated so much as it's told once in a lifetime, last seen 99 years ago, I don't know stuff.You self-proclaimed dooms day prophets how do you find it? (I can't wait to hear your response)Some even connected Aug 21, 2017, South Korea U$A  war training with the eclipse and wrote some bull shit.The world as we know it will end, but not as a man says so.If some shmuck in the dark house tweeted nuclear holocaust over sovereign nation provoking, that doesn't mean GOD will oblige his schedule to it.Noone knows how it ends, however, we are rolling without majority even noticing.

This is the "bookend" for the last coast-to-coast total eclipse five months before the U.S. Fifth Column of the pedo homo Anti-Christ we came to America in express covenant with our named Sovereign to escape, rose to full power in WW1 victory.Their Organized Crime, MSM-controlling, Hitler-financing, Holohoaxing FedScam ruling false-elite faction JFK ended has for more than a hundred years usurped Our Holy Nation - the only fulfillment of the biblically prophesied "Zion," "Israel Restored," God's "Promised Land" - and after their assassinating President Kennedy and Dr. King to return us to Rome's Vietnam slave plantation as papal catspaw and restore the debt bondage money scheme JFK had ended; which promotes illegal immigration as an organized army of pawns for invasion and conquest; and, along with many other abominations - including their latest Charlottesville psyop/hoax - committed 9/11: with God's anointed, first among equals, Donald Trump by grace now Elect of the sovereign People, the Beast of (((Gog))) and Babylon prophesied in Ezekiel 38:11 shall now be eclipsed, cast down as foretold.The Risen Babylon we came to America to escape in express covenant with God, our named Sovereign, shall then "fall in a day," Our Republic restored under the rule of Truth and Justice, the Creator again the "King of America" alone, the People once more sovereign. Praise God.Death for Treason - Justice for John and Martin, and Pat Tillman; and for our Vietnam and 9/11 dead.

Dude, you do know the Kennedy Family were slave holders and war profiteers right? I guess we better destroy everything named Kennedy right, including any people with that last name?  When will people stop being parrots and start growing brains? This "eclipse" is proly just a grid test to estimate how moronic crypto-buyers are going to react when their internet exchanges go down - cant wait!

I wonder if you can still start a fire with a magnifying lens when there is an eclipse?  Alright, this is a one time teaching opportunity for the kids and myself.

We will never get another chance to stare at the sun and blind ourselves ever again.  Come on people.  There are bragging rights here too.  You went blind first with your cheapo Wall-Mart 4 dollar glasses compared to my public library .gov evironmentally safe provided glasses.  You stupid comsumers.sarc

No shit.  The libraries were giving away free chinese cardboard glasses so if you really wanted a pair...  If the sky goes pure black and ghoulish apparitions start to appear then we might have something.  My son is six years old and I don't need him staring at the sun.  Otherwise it is just rocks floating in space. It's probably a good time to scam some people ya think?

You can actually watch an eclipse on the ground.  It's called the pinhole effect.  Only the most exceptional idiots would go blind from staring at the sun.  This is the case with everything and those people cannot be protected.  They are doomed to die of stupidity regardless of how many warnings you put on things.  It's not like the sun is a laser that burns your eyes out in 20 seconds.  You have had the sun beaming in your eyes plenty of time in your life.  If you looked at it too long your eyes would start watering and burning.  You can tell if your eyes are getting burned welding or anything else, with the exception of things like infrared laser.  So people basically probably sit there for a half hour with their eyes watering down their face and ignoring their eyes instinctively blinking and trying to close to get to the point where they are blind.  Its too bad it's not fatal.

14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:11 Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that see the sun.25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;12 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

..And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O LORD, bless this Thy hand grenade that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the LORD did grin and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu... . And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it."A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20

There was an asshole on here the other day on the classic cars thread that was bitching about the price of Harleys.  That one has been burning me.  I didn't feel like replying at the time because it isn't easy to explain.  His complaint was that Harleys are too expensive.  Indians are not cheap either.  What they are are nice classic bikes.  Bikes are not the same as the classic car market.  Sure, there are similarities but in no way is the attitude the same.  I don't know anyone who buys a Harley or an Indian or any other bike for an investement.  You buy them to ride them.  How many bike shows have you ever been to?  Those places are called museums.I have had some some nice cars over the years including a 69 Pontiac.  That is a car and not a motorcycle and they are not the same thing.  Sure, you will see some bikes at car shows but those motorcycles are someone else's dream.  With motorcycles you make your bike your own and if you want to piss away a lot of money doing so then go for it.  Your are making your bike worthless by doing so.  The people who give a shit about the price of a bike are the people who watch TV shows about building custom bikes.  I hate that shit.  Those shows are worthless.  Half of that shit you can't ride anyway.  No one who is a true biker gives a fuck about your fucking flaming scream for attention.  To have a flamer bike is one way that we know that are you NOT one of us.  To give an example to help everyone understand, today was the Charity Rideout for the little kid who was born with a heart defect.  The wife took off with a another woman pretty early on their bikes.  Perfect, because that is what I wanted her do.  I don't like riding with other people...period.  Mrs. M needs that.  It is a good thing for her to do.  Daughter told me that she left the garage key in my truck.  I finally got going by myself two hours later and I thought I had the intinerary.  I fired up the Harely, no helmet because if you are going to die then you die.  I don't do facefuck so I didn't get the updated intinerary.   There were over 100 bikes in this ride out.  By my calculations I should have cut their path and begrudgingly joined.  Riding solo on state highway and I get there and no one home.I don't believe in fancy shit so I don't have GPS on my bike.  I didn't even bring my cell phone.  What the fuck would I need that for?  Where the fuck am I?  I can't be that hard.  The sun is a pretty good indicator of what direction you are going and I used it but didn't stare at it.  I just kept going back towards home by my little old self and it was nice.  You are just out there solo amongst the corn fields and it is you against the world and you have time to think.  It's beautiful.  Just you, the bike and the road.I made it back the starting point but that group hadn't made it there yet and I wasn't going to hang around so I went home.  I didn't have to deal with anyone.  For two hours I never got off the bike.  I didn't have to do what anyone said.  I didn't have to put on false airs.  I guess there was drinking and smoking of pot going on but that was not what it was about.  The kid's parents got my money.(I think)  I just did it my way.  The wife had a great time and so did I.  We all end up at the same place eventually.Total fuel cost for me was $4.01 for 100 miles.  Donation?  No one needs to know now do they?
