Yes, Angie, there's always someone. In this case, a group of fundamentalist Christians think this solar eclipse is the one that portends the end, the previous ones having not quite managed. They're apparently looking forward to it.

If you're hoping to see the eclipse, you need to protect your eyes. Did you know that even if only a tiny sliver of the Sun's disk is visible, you can do lasting damage to your eyes, though you probably won't be blinded.
Quote:
Even the tiniest sliver of a crescent sun peeking out from behind the moon emits enough light to scorch your eyes, Ralph Chou, professor emeritus at the School of Optometry & Vision Science at the University of Waterloo in Canada, told Space.com. "I have seen instances where the patient has eventually shown up with crescents burned into the back of the eye, and you can almost tell exactly when they looked."

Deborah Byrd of SeaSky warns Our supplier has told us this is the last batch we can get. Order your eclipse glasses now!

Social media is great at spreading misconceptions. Dr. Marshall Shepherd of the University of Georgia explains about Four Emerging Misconceptions On Social Media About The Upcoming Great American Eclipse. Lots of useful information.

This article on the solar eclipse includes a super feature. You can put in your zip code and it will show what you will see during the eclipse - assuming weather is ok, of course.

And remember! if you're watching the partial eclipse, use proper eclipse glasses or something to project the eclipse. Don't look at the Sun without eye protection. You'd be surprised how much harmful radiation there is even if a small part of the Sun is not eclipsed.
