* As awesome a sight as solar eclipses are, the associated blindness from looking at them without proper eye protection invokes paranoia in many eclipse goers. All it takes is a few seconds of staring for the sunlight to do its damage to your eye and you initially won't feel any pain at all. Sometimes, symptoms of eclipse blindness won't manifest until days after the event. If you are unfortunate enough to have your eyes damaged, the blindness is usually permanent.

Good luck trusting any card reader in the future, especially if it's a magnetic stripe reader, as they are not only used -- especially in the US which is known to be slow in adapting more advanced card technology like EMV chips -- they are also known for relatively easy exploits that can screw over those who don't carefully check every reader for "skimmer" devices.

* Imagine that you're driving down a road, and someone turns onto the road in front of you. You honk, and suddenly they get behind you and start trying to run you off of the road! Road rage is very common, and it's tough to predict.
