Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

“I am very nearsighted, and I could read the text on my book across the room,” one user commented on Youtube. “Incredible!”

A pinhole can focus light coming from any distance – because a pinhole is so small, the light only goes through in one place, which means there is no blur and everything is in focus. This concept is similar to using small apertures in photography in order to focus on an object.

However, this trick blocks light rather than focusing on light, which means the image seen through a pinhole formed by one’s hand is darker.
