Red glare

So, I am sitting at my desk, inworld, talking about some content creation, and suddenly there is a bright red glare. A bright red laser dot, shining through a crack in the drapes in the middle of the evening, right into my left eye.

I was afraid at first to go to the door, fearing what I might find, but I ultimately opened the door with my partner backing me up. Nothing. Nobody. Walk out and look up and down the street. Not a soul, and not a sound.

Now I can't see properly out of my left eye.

Yes, we called the police. I felt a bit silly about it, but they they took it quite seriously and there is now a patrol car cruising the streets.

It has been about a half hour now, and my left eye is still all blurry.

    You should really get your eye looked at. Lasers can do a lot of damage.

  3. It was a form of physical assault, plain and simple. Don't try to explain it away even though its only a laser - lasers have been proven to cause severe eye damage before.

    And yes, I would get that eye checked out. Have the police countersign against the bill if necessary - this is a matter of medicating on the after-effects of a assault.

    Please refrain from using the comments field on a blog to air your partisan concerns.

    You could have gotten a faster response and notice if you had IMed Tateru Nino inworld. I'm not really sure how much slower it'll become being put through this way.
