Who's making the trek to the Path of Totality to witness in person the eclipse?

Wife and I are going to do our part to increase Global Warming and drive the gas guzzler about 5 hours one way to see it and experience it. Cant wait!

I wish I could....it's a weird event.

Astronomers helped prove Einstein's gravitational theories as a total eclipse occurred.

When stars appeared around the rim of the darkened sun disc when they should have been obscured by the sun.

The sun's mass had slightly bent the trajectory of those star's light.

Was one of the only ways they could prove his theories at the time.

Which is where the phrase "GET BENT!" came from.

And then they found Dark Matter and that set us back at least 50 years in our understanding of the Universe. Crazy!

A Higgs boson goes into a church and the priest says, ‘We don’t allow Higgs bosons here.’ And the Higgs boson says, ‘But without me there is no mass.

I think that they are just burnt, but if you wear your special glasses you won't notice!

Or...you can let it sit there....and without even eating it....

As the eclipse starts and heads towards the sun being fully eclipsed.....the pizza will look like it's being eaten....until gone....

And then will magically re-appear again....

Have to have special glasses and dark dough.....

A few beers help too.......
