It's not strong enough to sunburn you is it?


A man, trying to discourage trespassers, put up signs around his property saying "Caution! Unprotected personnel may suffer radiation damage!"

When his neighbors complained (wondering exactly what he had on his property), he responded "Hey, it's true! If you run around here naked, you might get sunburned!"

So have I. People do strange things! :bugeye:

Has anyone ever wondered what motivates these people to behave the way they do? Sometimes I think there is a gene for weirdness. Especially in my family! :wink:

The blink reflex should be sufficient to prevent any damage to your eyes.
