Mother in the Sun: Take 2

As if it weren't stupid before, it seems another 50 people in India have lost their vision trying to see the Virgin Mary by staring at the sun.

According to one doctor, “Most patients may hopefully improve their vision.”

How about next time we hopefully improve their intelligence?

Must admit, I did something similar and likewise foolish when I was even younger than that 12-year-old mentioned in the article. I think my dark vision is still damaged by that.

But, it was a partial eclipse, and I just had to sneak a peek beyond what I was seeing on the projection!

Is that more forgivable? Or at least more reasonable?

How stupid can people be....
@Randy: I guess you didn't stare at the eclipse expecting to find Jesus, so I think it's more reasonable.
