I could see using something like this to waft under your nose and "inhale" that way, like aromatherapy on a stick to take with you, but not something like a cigarette.

General Discussion / Confused about "Corked"
« Last post by DeeDee on Today at 01:04:45 AM »
Okay. I was curious when I saw the ad, but when I got to the page, it was rapidly made obvious to me that this product isn't "aromatherapy" as they claim, but is instead what's known as "vaping." You know. Electronic cigarettes.

Wouldn't this be dangerous as all get out to be inhaling essential oils?  https://corked.com/

Did it get dark?

Was like night suddenly.
And could you see the stars?

The videos I've seen do show  it being dark.

We saw Venus and a few stars coming out. Just like twilight, some show first and others later.

A lot of people in places around here ended up with clouds, and they were actually booing it. Booing who? Mother Nature?

We got 2 minutes and 40 seconds of totality. People were flocking to this area in TN and KY. Several countries included coming to the Nashville airport, and our local airport that doesn't take anything larger than Lear jets was stuffed. RV's at Walmart. The state park and the other RV park nearby. . .stuffed. People out in fields out here where some rented tent space in their fields.

We stayed here on our hill half shaded under a tree and watched it. Was pretty neat the way the temperature dropped and everything. One of the places in KY that had scientists visiting reported that bats came out chasing the insects that went crazy with the temps dropping.

I'm seriously hoping that the town to the south with a Petco has emptied now. I've heard it was anyway, but you never know since it's right on I-40 and has several motels too.

The only odd thing that happened here? The clip on Vlad's leash broke.

We made pinhole viewers from cereal boxes and went out at work and watched.  Some had their phone camera on "selfie" whatever that means and were able to record it that way. There was quite a bit of cloud here too, but we got to see it pretty well, especially with the pin hole box viewers.

Did you want me to change the thread title on all the posts in this thread, back to the ones from 2014?  Or just the ones from the posts from this year?

Just the main title.  I'm pretty sure you did it for me last year too.  It originally said "Happy 4th" Somewhere there's a Happy 5th, but I stuck to this one because it has more pictures and stories now.

No photos. Just didn't work out.

Thanks for trying.  What was it like?  Was it like nighttime there?  I was in the 75% totality so it didn't get very dark here.  It was like a cloudy day (and we had those, too), with an orange tinge.
