I thought I'd heard it all but this takes the cake! Yup there are real people, clueless people that sprayed sunscreen into their eyes thinking it would work the same as welders glass... The stupid in this article hurts!


Thousands of people across North America flocked outside on the afternoon of Monday, August 21, 2017 to witness the amazing natural phenomena that was the solar eclipse.

There are plenty of ways to safely view the solar eclipse that don’t lead to permanent eye damage.

However, using sunscreen on your eyeballs is not one of them and unfortunately some people missed the memo.

According to TIME, staring directly at the sun during a solar eclipse can lead to a condition called “eclipse blindness,” which results from burning your retina and can causes both temporary and permanent vision problems. .. (No! Really?)

So, the next time there is a solar eclipse in 2024, make sure to invest in some glasses and leave the sunscreen for your skin.

I'm sure money could be made for the next SE in 2024 selling [ I Will Not Spray Suntan Lotion Onto My Eyeballs or Stare into the Eclipse ] masks for the low price of 29.99.

There is no way this is real. I did see this as a Facebook meme going around. Your source doesn't give any sources for this information it merely states that time magazine thinks it's a bad idea to stare at the sun. An opinion that I share with them.

From the SUN in England. There were no hospitals named, which makes the claim questionable.
There was only one name mentioned, that of a nurse. And her claim was not that she had encountered these people, but rather that one of her colleagues had told her this had happened.

So, unnamed hospital and the source was second hand at that. And who else but the SUN to report it.
And now that website has reprinted the tale and you have brought it to us.

If they were going to try to use sunscreen to protect their eyes, why wouldn't they just put it on sunglasses first, then put the sunglasses on?

Buhahaha best laugh ever, I didn't even use sunscreen. ROFL. I just put the glasses to camera lens. OMG Nothing happened to me when I looked right at it without glasses.

I hope honestly wish it was fake. But after reading this, my faith in humanity slid down a notch.
