Are you not supposed to look at an eclipse, or are you able to look at certian types of eclipse's but not others? I always forget the eclipse rules becasue the come around so infrequently.

I think it goes something like, If you look directly at an eclipse, you turn into stone. The trick is to look through some reflective material, such as a shield.

No, no, no. It's "An eclipse in hand is worth two in the bush." Wait, that's not right . . .

3-D glasses have so many functions, they can make Freddie Kruger come to life in the movie theater and they can prevent us from burning our retna's and going blind from looking at an eclipse.
