Comment: What's to stop blinding reflections? (Score 1) 482

Isn't this laser going to produce lots of instant retina frying reflections from the target that are going to play randomly over anything nearby? If a 250mw laser is a serious blinding hazard a 32kw laser must be a much more serious problem even after the reflections have bounced off several reflective surfaces.

Factorials were someone's attempt to make math LOOK exciting.
