LOL. That's fine. But I did. So I was giving my personal response to the OP's question.

So you don't see it as a big deal even though there's a very large chunk of the population that has never witnessed a total solar eclipse? Okay then.

You may want to go back and reread the OP's original questions. He was inquiring as to; our plans for viewing the eclipse, were we excited?, etc.
My initial comments were in response to that post. You are entitled to your opinion just as I am. Feel free to watch the eclipse until your heart is content if you like. I hope that you find it fulfilling. For me, I don't feel that it is anything worth leaving my desk to experience.

I was going to drive to KC and visit my cousin to see the totality, but decided that 83% in Minnesota will be good enough.

My sentiments exactly: Annular in 2023 right at home (again), then total on the Mexican coast in 2024!

I'm lucky. I live in the northern half of Kansas City, MO. I'll be watching the full eclipse from a lawn chair in my backyard. (Almost 2 minutes of totality.) The local news here is reporting that Monday will be crazy. They're expecting almost a half a million tourists. There are already groups here from China, Europe, and Australia. Nearly all of the schools have also shut down on Monday so the kids and their families can head to the northern part of the city and view the total eclipse.
