Don't try this at home...
A few years ago, there was an eclipse of the sun. It happened mid-summer at around midday, when the sun was at its fiercest .
The eclipse attracted a lot of media attention and people were advised, in no uncertain terms, NOT to look directly at it. Not wanting to miss out, I came up with the bright (no pun intended) idea of donning 4 pairs of sunglasses in order to witness this once in a lifetime event in all its heavenly glory. For the purpose of the story I would like to be able to tell you that this reckless act caused me to sizzle my retinas but no..... it worked a treat.
