“If I had a dollar for every time someone said not to look directly at the eclipse…”

People are often told not to look directly at a solar eclipse. After the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse, a jocular line was posted on Reddit—Jokes:

“If I had a dollar for every time someone said not to look directly at the eclipse...I’d have enough money to pay for the eye surgery I need now!”

If I had a dollar for every time someone told me not to look at the eclipse, I’d be rich.
