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.

This is a great opportunity for all the transabled people out there who don't feel at home in their own bodies, bodies which sadly work too well for them collect SSDI and fulfill their dreams of sitting on their fat asses all day reading facebook.  Pouring bleach in your eyes can be such a hassle.  Now there's an easier way!I don't believe that the eye doesn't have pain receptors though.  What the hell is he talking about?

I am the proud survivor of one total eclipse, and a couple of partial eclipses, and I can assure you that the endless panic and fear-mongering are just background noise to the event. Don't forget that as you are looking up at the sun, someone will be robbing your house, picking your pocket, and quite possibly raping your wife / daughter. You should treat the eclipse as an opportunity to be even more scared than you would normally be.I would say that welding glass is probably the best way to view the sun. If you look at the sun without protection, you are going to get welder's eye, and it hurts. We have all watched an overly bright sunset - your body knows the light is too bright, and you squint, and your eyes water, and it is uncomfortable. If you ignore all the symptoms, then you are not very bright. Think of it as a Darwin award opportunity.

Dead on Sailor! Staring up at the midday sun and focusing it with the lens of your eye onto your retina is akin to focusing the sun on an ant with a magnifying glass. It's not like a baseball player losing a ball in the sun, where he is trying to focus on the ball, or looking at a sunset through thick filtering layers of the atmosphere. Damage is quick and permanent, and you will spend the rest of your darkened life regreting your skepticism of this advice.

Better idea: JUST DON'T LOOK AT IT. This is so stupid.  Every news- and weather-related channel has been spamming this thing all day long.  Shit, I turned on late night radio and there were some assholes pointing to it as a portent of End Times. If the media doesn't hype it, stupid sheeple won't try to look at it.  END OF PROBLEM. Okay?  Now, let's get back to important things, like prosecuting the Clintons.

The auto darkening welding helmets don't work. Use one with #14 welder's glass. I tried one with #11 and it wasn't so good, I would not rely on it. And those goggles only have #10 glass in them, definately not safe.Any welding supply house should have #14 glass inserts available, unless they're suddenly out of stock today.

Bad enough that so many people have lost their minds already over the election of Donald Trump, what will these people do if they also lose their sight and are unable to find Confederate monuments to tear down.  I know, get on a line to collect SSI benefits now that they cannot battle SS supporters.  Oh well, it will probably be cloudy and rain tomorrow anyway.

I seems that lots, if not most Americans, have lost their sight (as well as their common sense, ability to reason, and critical thinking). Fwd! Over the Cliff!
