I'll be at work. If we're lucky, we might see about 75% of the overall solar eclipse.

I'm way too late to the party and now have no easy means to get eclipse glasses I feel comfortable are "real" without paying too much. ;(

I'll be in school during most of it anyway and it's been raining so most likely it'll be impossible to see.

We'll I checked for my location and seems were only getting a partial eclipse.

Even if it was full is it really that amazing to see? From videos it doesn't look like it. Unless it's something that you have to see in person.

It gets dark, the sun looks more like a dot and it's not exactly safe to watch except when it's directly covered.

Some of the videos I saw had pretty big reactions but I don't know.

That's what the sun tells itself to make it feel better.

There are other ways to watch it guys. You could make an eclipse box very easily with a few simple items. Google how to build one. I've seen an eclipse once before and it is so much better to see it in person in real life than to watch someone's video of it. Go outside and at least watch the sky go dark.

I will be at work for it but I normally work the cash window so I might be able to see some of it.

I'll be at work, outside, where we have no choice but to look up. I guess I'll just bring a welding mask or something.

I've seen a few eclipses in my life already. They're all the same. Who cares.

I'll be at work... with no windows on that floor. Maybe I step out for just a min, but chances are I'll prob end up forgetting entirely amid all the nonsense of my job.
