Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

Since there wasn't a thread for this, I figured I may as well start one before it's too late.

This ladies and gentlemen, is a once in a generation event. Where are you going to be when the great North American eclipse of the sun by the moon happens? You better get up early, have your special 5 dollar shades ready, because it starts at 10 AM Pacific time. You'll have a better view of the total eclipse if you're in the northwest, southwest, or heartland of the USA than you will if you're on the west coast or the east coast.

Where are you going to be when it happens?

West Coast in Los Angeles. Luckily it's at a reasonable time here, because there's no way I'd be able to wake up early.

I wish rose was here, she'd probably make ALL the Berserk references.

Welding mask and sunglasses are usually to weak anyway, you need at least a shade 12, ideally 14.

That was an experience, a beauty of the creation.

I'll be posting some photos once I have a real computer. But that was Epic. I know we overuse the term. But that's what it was.

I don't think it's appropriate to consider this event the "Great North American Eclipse" as there will be two more eclipses in a few years, so is it possible to change the title? Thank you. and
perhaps not to speak of this event anymore?
