Yes.
Only found out about it this morning, so I had to figure out a safe way to "view" it.

Initially made a pinhole for viewing, then used one side of the binoculars to project a larger image.

http://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/box-pinhole-projector.html

Looked at it periodically until the maximum coverage at 8:23.
Interesting to see the crescent sun.
Checked it a few times after that, then watched images of the full eclipse online from Indonesia.

All the above at some point in life can be a given and later it's a surprise to progressively find that all of them are incorrect.
But this morning I had the pleasure of being bamboozled to the 2nd level! As enny fool knowz Geneva isn't the capital of Switzerland... that's easy, I know this one... it's Zurich!, ah ah ah, see got you there - ha! :-D

Except it's neither Geneva nor Zurich!!


I'm late to this party. Anyway if you think this is bad, people tried telling me that the capital of Africa is South Africa (because that's where the victory from apartheid comes from).

So wrong in so many levels...

I'm off fb for many days now, strangely I don't miss it all.. Not clicking on click bait anymore, that means this forum gets more of my attention now.

5 ospf routers walk into a bar, who gets to drive? The designated router.

An arp packet walked into MacDonalds and asked for a big mac.

An admiring and amusing comment seen elsewhere today, regarding a hot female champion poker player:

<i>...and of course she frequents high stake licenced card game establishments.
Liquor in the front. Poker in the rear.</i>

If you are looking at all in one micro systems, check the total harmonic distortion... I looked at one .20 percent I thought it said... until I looked closely... it was 20 percent at full power... a lot of the micros sound like crap at volume and are crap.

There is a reason you never find Bose speaker products inside the audio room at stores... they wouldn't sell any.

I'd go with the separate AV receiver and if space is an issue, a Pro Cinema speaker system... I really like mine. http://www.definitivetech.com/products/ ... f-systems/

I've got the 600 series with 800 front speakers... you will find these in audio rooms.
