So now that the eclipse has passed us...how long until the first lawsuit from someone claiming vision issues from lowest bid glasses they bought from Amazon, Walmart, grocery store, etc...I give it until Friday until they start pouring out.  Lawyers are smart and know if they wait until Friday it will give them a few extra hours in the news cycle....but don't under estimate the lawyer that wants to be first, and that might happen tomorrow.

There was a lawyer commercial during the news coverage of it today and I fully expected it to be regarding the fake glasses a lot of people got.

Amazon was refunding some peoples glasses that were purchased, im guessing to avoid liability.

My left eye is red and all fucked up. Because I got gas in it, cus I was working on an engine like a fucking man today.

Had on safety glasses, took gas to the dome and it ran behind my glasses into my eyes.
