Comment Of The Day: Don't Mess With Lunar-Eclipse Fans

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

Everyone was very excited about the full lunar eclipse early Tuesday morning, so we thought we offer some possibly completely unuseful tips for enjoying it.

These included precisely when to cue up the Pink Floyd, and how to build a viewing gadget with a cardboard box and a pinhole.

Color the lunar-eclipse fans as "not amused."

Said Joe H.:

Who ever wrote this is a retard. Why even waste your time to write it if you dont care to see it?? Dumba#@

God how I hate reading anything from the Houston Press. Every word towards even a complaint pains me... so I'll stop now. Hipsters burn in hell.

But the Comment of the Day goes to 21love:

A solar eclipse is harmful to your eyes, not a lunar eclipse.

We stand corrected, sir.
