    Can't look into the sun because sentence lacks subject.  Next time, try writing English.

    The Sun is bright enough to damage your eyesight, or, if you look long enough, cause blindness.  Galileo discovered sunspots, but spent the last 20 years of his life blind as a result.

    I look into the sun all the time. That actually helps to improve my vision and I'm not joking. 

    I do it gradually.  I look, look away, look again and slowly focus right into the sun once my eyes adjust.

    I was told the same about Playing with myself

    The Suns Light is Ultra Violet in its purest form

    I have done Welding before and have came home with a Arc Eye

    Which is not comfortable I can tell you

    It is like hot sand getting rubbed into your eyeballs

    Basically the white of your eyes can become Sunburnt 

    I still have my old Welding Mask

     Today was Sunny

    I put it on and looked at the Sun

    I could plainly see the disc and thought, if I ever get a chance to witness an Eclipse it would be handy

    It also showed also how small the disc really is

    You can cover it with an Asprin at arm's length

    I now wear Glasses by the way

    Because it will damage your eyesight and possibly even blind you.  How is that not obvious?

    The sun is so strong it destroys something in the eyes if you look at it. Take example fire it looks great but to the touch it burns whether it looks good or not.

    you can, but you would suffer permanent vision damage or total blindness.
