VocalizedBoar tells us more.
No joke, all solar eclipse glasses were sold out. Even all the welding goggles were sold out at the hardware stores.

That doesn't work,u need something that will reduce the brightness.Were u ever one of the nerds like me setting leaves on fire with a magnifying glass?U have the same kinda thing in ur eye that the magnifying glass does to set it on fire. Look at the sun and u do the same thing.And a mirror does too
lefty619, you're 18 and haven't learned that solar eclipses are much more rare than once a year. How? They happen once every few years, take only a couple hours from start to finish, and can only be seen by a small portion of the planet each time. OP, calm down. My friend and I stared directly at it for a minute, or so, at a time all throughout. The spots in my vision only lasted a few seconds and the damage to retinas is minimal as long as you only do it a few times in your life. I should state that we only got 35% coverage here and looking at the ring of fire effect is more damaging.
Or just not act like you know everything because you obviously know nothing. Regular sunglasses would do the job fine. as well as the naked eye.
It's not worth your eyesight. And it's not the end of the world. There will be other solar eclipses!
Your life sucks not because a fluke theft spoiled your one time purchase, but because you lack the intelligence to look up other safe methods of viewing solar eclipses on the internet or the creativity to come up with another option on your own. This FML is pretty weak, dude.
