Greg Brouelette, No, the light hits the mask before it hits your eyes. A tiny amount of the full brightness gets through before it darkens but not enough to cause damage. We're talking millionths of a second.
Man when I think about all the money there is out there to waste. I'm struggling to pay bills and get my little projects off the ground and I think, Damn, if I just built a fake replica ark that doesn't even float, stupid people would give me $73 MILLION dollars!
Let me explain. YouTube is all housed in one enormous brick building in Mendicino Ca. The building is divided in half by a wall with no doors that runs through the building. In one half of the building everyone wears white trench coats and wide brimmed white hats. On the other side of the building everyone wears black trench coats and hats. A lot of in fighting goes on between the two halves. They snipe at each other with sticks of dynamite and spherical bombs. There are a lot of trap doors in floors, etc. Fairly normal office politics.
Sorry, but your channel just got caught in the middle of all that.
