So as it turns out...I probably shoulda bought the glasses, can barely see the eclipse and now my eye balls hurt.— Jimmy Rowley (@RowleyJimmy) August 21, 2017
So despite the multiple warnings from the super smart people at NASA people still decided they should look at the solar eclipse without speciality glasses.
Naturally these individuals took to Twitter to express their surprise at being blinded by the sun...
What a time to be alive.
