I have an idea for you. Take those down to your local welding supply store...they will pay you for those!!!!...very effective at shielding ones eyes from the arc of that blinding light.
And think of it, if you will, of the tremendous sense of contributation to the wellbeing of your fellow man that you will experience. You will become known as Saint Jorge, patron saint of the blind.
And to think that we all knew you "when".!!!!
