I recently acquired a turquoise Photon light from ThinkGeek. Currently, I am up pulling an all-nighter writing a paper that is due in seven hours. Getting a little woozy, I decided to blow turquoise photons onto my retinae in order to shock myself awake.

A few seconds of that was enough. I got up, walked around, came back and noticed that my screen had deep yellow splotches on it. Not making the connection, I degaussed it. No change. Crap!, I thought. I hope my monitor isn't fried.

Then I moved my head. The splotches moved. One neuron talked to another and suddenly I realized my retinae were fried.


Maybe my brain is fried.
