Less Than Meets The Eye

, , , | Right | October 22, 2010

(Our laser tag equipment works on radio waves. The laser is only there to see the general area you’re aiming for. Two customers approach me.)

Customer #1: “Will these blind you if you get shot in the eye?”

Me: “No, ma’am. It’s a very low powered beam. It is a bit disconcerting when you get tagged in the eye, but that’s just your eye adjusting suddenly to the bright light in the darkness.”

Customer #1: “Are you sure it won’t hurt your eyes?”

Me: “Yes, ma’am, to do any damage at all. You would have to stare down the barrel and shoot yourself in the eye repeatedly.”

([Customer #2] immediately looks into the barrel and holds down the trigger.)
