Venus Transit

I haven't mentioned it because anyone strange enough to read Lumberjacks is cosmic (lunar) enough to be plugged into the Venus transit already. But I will remind you of the time.... it starts in ten minutes!

Most of you are welders as well, so I'll remind you not to look at the sun without your goggles or helmet on. (go ahead, use the helmet; it'll scare the neighbors)

Strangely, scientists have found that only conservatives need eye protection when looking at the sun. Liberals can stare into the sun without harm. Who knew? No, seriously, even liberals will go blind, so don't sue me, ok?
