Big Pencil needs more street sales reps, so they came up with the fake eclipse glasses scam.

Big Pencil strikes again! The second round of glasses I ordered a week ago, and paid extra for 2 day shipping, haven't arrived yet AND the company that sold them has gone dark. We may have to use a pinhole projector like savages.

Back in 1978 I improvised and doubled and redoubled film negatives until I could look right up at the sun. When I showed the other kids, they dropped their pinhole garbage and partook themselves. As they gazed upward, I whispered, "let the Goddess Sol into your heart and minds, fellow children."

I didn't get the glasses I ordered yet either, but I did get the solar binoculars. I have a tube of them from the annular eclipse a few years ago. Have to dig them out, I guess...if I can find them.
