Nearly 50 people in India have lost their sight after staring at the sun, looking for a vision of the Virgin Mary.
The health department has now put up a signboard at the hotelier’s house near Erumeli, where the divine image is said to have appeared, warning people against exposing their eyes to sunlight.
This must be some kind of joke on stupid people:
“Hey guys, guess what? The Virgin Mary has appeared in the sun!”
“Uhhhh… I don’t see it.”
“Keep looking. Like for a very long time.”
Thankfully for them, it is unlikely the damage is permanent, since looking at the sun rarely makes a person permanently blind.
Update: I love Roger’s comment: “So now they’ve got blind faith?”
