The torch of brightness…

Posted by Ethan B in 100wc | 3 Comments

In an age long forgotten, a torch was manufactured that could blind anyone that even dared as to look at it’s shimmer. But, there was once a small boy (aged around 8) that did not put in these considerations into his already tiny brain, so much so that the light blinded him for the rest of his poor life. Day after day, this torch’s shine was on this kid’s mind, but not on his eyes -luckily-, as he was in hospital pretty much 24/7. I guess this just goes to show, you never, EVER play with torches that consist of very high light levels.

    I have a SAD lamp at home which is very very bright and the instructions clearly say not to look at it directly! Perhaps it wasn’t a torch but one of these special lights?

    Hello Ethan,
    Very wise advise not to look directly into very bright lights and even more importantly, the sun!

  3. Ooo, that’s quite a tough lesson your main character had to learn there Ethan. Now why might someone manufacture a device so dangerous? Can you think of some reasons? What safety precautions do you think should have been taken?
    Well done and keep rising to the Challenge.
