    The context was, IIRC, that some new-agers would use a solar eclipse as
    a total experience of the wonders of the universe.  There are some
    documented cases of drunks, stoners and others staring at the sun to
    "prove" the experts wrong about not looking at the sun during partial
    phases - or just being stupid.  Photos of the retina show nice little
    partial-eclipse-shaped burn marks quite well.
    
    However, I think I knew more smokers in my sailing days decades ago than
    any other time/hobby.
