Yesterday’s total solar eclipse was a sight to behold… if you had the proper eyewear.
Because humans think they’re hot shit, a ton of people metaphorically said “Fuck You!” to their eyesight and stared directly into the sun all in the name of bragging rights. Here are just some of these dumb asses:

Looked up for .5 seconds. My eyes still hurt 20 mins later. Rightfully worried or paranoid?

Hell, even the President got in on the action! I guess he thought wearing those glasses was just the FAKE NEWS trying to get to him.
As he did this, someone in a crowd of aides below shouted "Don't look." pic.twitter.com/dtfSLEzcAZ

“Swish, Swish, Bitch,” – The Moon talking about you dumbass humans who are 100000% blind by now, probably.
To be fair, it was a once in a lifetime moment, but soon, so will their ability to see properly.
