    Ouch, this made me begin to think that staring into laser pointers throughout my whole child may not have been the wisest idea.

    You actually get to watch the laser kill the camera phone that is recording it!

    I think 30 people partially blinded is proof enough...

    They're lucky if they walk away only partially blinded.

    They're lucky that they walked away only partially blinded. The news clip said that some have experienced up to an 80% loss of vision but no one had lost their vision completely. Unfortunately, any amount of this nature of damage is considered generally irreversible.
