If you want to throw an end-of-the world party to celebrate, here are a couple things to keep in mind:

Watching a solar eclipse can be a fascinating and memorable experience, but it's crucial to do so safely to protect your eyes from damage. Here are some tips for safely watching a solar eclipse:

  1. Use certified eclipse glasses: Purchase special-purpose solar filters or eclipse glasses that are specifically designed for viewing the sun. Make sure they are certified to meet the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard.
  2. Don't use regular sunglasses. Regular sunglasses are not sufficient for safe solar viewing. They do not provide enough protection from the intense sunlight during an eclipse.
  3. Inspect your glasses: Before using eclipse glasses, inspect them for any damage such as scratches, holes, or wrinkles. If they are damaged in any way, do not use them.
  4. Cover your eyes completely. When wearing eclipse glasses, ensure that they cover your eyes completely and fit snugly around your face. Do not peek around the glasses while looking at the sun.
  5. Use solar filters for cameras and telescopes. If you plan to photograph or observe the eclipse through binoculars or a telescope, use a solar filter specifically designed for such equipment. Never look through optical devices at the sun without proper filtration.
  6. Create a pinhole projector: If you don't have access to eclipse glasses or solar filters, you can create a pinhole projector to indirectly view the eclipse. This involves projecting an image of the sun onto a surface using a pinhole or small opening.
  7. Seek alternative viewing methods: Consider watching the eclipse through live streams or broadcasts provided by reputable sources if you are unable to safely view it in person.

Remember, even during a partial eclipse, the sun's rays can still cause eye damage if viewed directly without proper protection. It's essential to prioritize eye safety and follow these precautions to enjoy the eclipse without risking harm to your vision.

How will North Dakota survive? 


The ingenuity of its inhabitants and the peculiar topography of the state, though, may help ensure its continued existence.

One potential advantage for North Dakota is the state's low population density in comparison to others. At least in the beginning, it might be easier to manage resources if there were fewer individuals to deal with. Also, the state's huge arable land areas might end up being really important for feeding the people.

North Dakota is known for its abundant agricultural production, including wheat, barley, and others, which could provide survivors with food.

In addition, the Bakken Formation oil deposits in North Dakota and the state's other plentiful energy resources may be vital to the state's continued existence in the future. In the aftermath of the apocalypse, these resources could be invaluable for society's restoration, even though they may be initially disrupted owing to the upheaval.

Another possible factor is the rural aspect of the state, which is characterized by its strong sense of community and independence. The people of North Dakota have a long tradition of perseverance in the face of extreme weather and other forms of hardship.

With this kind of strength, communities may be able to rally behind one another and help one another through difficult times.

Survivors in North Dakota may be able to concentrate on community restoration and fortification rather than worrying about potential outside dangers due to the state's relatively remote location.

Despite the fact that North Dakota would face tremendous difficulties in the event of an April 8th total eclipse-triggered apocalypse, the state's energy reserves, agricultural resources, community spirit, and isolation could help it survive and recover from the disaster.

10 Things That'll Burn Your Eyes Even Worse Than The Eclipse

I'll never forget the old man changing clothes directly next to me on the beach in Mexico. My 8-year-old eyes were NOT ready for that. Ugh.
