No it doesn't, it states that humans can see the total eclipse if they are in the correct location once a month, the total eclipse just doesn't happen to fall on the Earth every month. Read the article, don't just spew random nonsense all the time.

lol, they are the same ones giving you the model that doesn't work!
NASA's model works, otherwise they wouldn't be able to send spaceships to other planets and Moons.

None of your stuff works together, it all contradicts itself, in the same way you can't make a three body model work.
Just because you can't understand it, doesn't mean that it doesn't work.

Contrary to some who try to claim that the eclipse should move from east to west, the shadow of the Moon moves from west to east at about 1,700 Km per hour.

Should we have a :ffhug: Eclipse Party?

I feel like we should all be together.

That's why it's so important that you get right to work on that map. Wake up the sheeple!

I decide that traffic is going to be so horrendous that I will not be traveling to the PATH OF TOTALITY to view the total eclipse for several reasons. One, I don't have the money. Two, I don't have the money. Three, I don't have the time. You thought I was going to say the money, right?

Me? I'd hate to have to look for porta-potties.

On the upside, you can be outstanding in some field.

In my own house I have several bathrooms, I don't like porta-potties. Have you ever been in one?

If you're outstanding in a field, you must be a farmer.

I have been in entirely too many porta-potties.

I'll be watching from the balcony overlooking my back yard, provided the cloud cover gives us a break. We're at 99.5%, but in the Willamette Valley. My toilet is indoors, steps away, and does not have the legions of the careless visiting it on one day.

If you're outstanding in a field, you probably didn't see the sign warning about the bull.

But I have seen 180 (or less) lb farmers leading a 2,000 lb bull around by the ring in the bull's nose when the bull was enamored by a cow, Farmers are smarter than you think.
