An important discovery for TI's
This seems like a small thing, but it's not. The perpetrators are able to visualize the heat signature of your face (eyes, nose, etc.) in great detail, and shoot you very precisely; and if you've been reading this blog, you know that they are most definitely targeting the orbicularis occuli muscles of your eyes. These are just under your orbital ridge, and the perpetrators usually shoot at an angle that comes just under that bony ridge around the tops and sides of your eyes. All of this I've blogged before, and all of this remains consistent with my experience and what they appear to be doing.
The thing is, one reason the perpetrators may be choosing this vector is because it's hard to block (to obscure the heat signature of it, that is) with your hands and fingers. Why? Because your eyebrows are in the way! I'm not kidding: I shaved my eyebrows and it made all the difference. I was able to get my hands/fingers close enough that it obscured that bony ridge's delineation and made it hard for the perps to know where to aim.
Sure, it looks a little funny but not too horrible. I think it is essential for all TI's: Shave your brows! All the way off! I have to laugh at this stuff, because as an innocent person being viciously attacked, it's important to keep a sense of humor. But what the perpetrators are doing is truly criminal. If you are a TI (and you know who you are), try shaving off your eyebrows and then using your hands (or even steel or lead-protective clothing) to obscure along the bony ridge of the eyes. You'll see that you are much more protected because you are to make a much tighter "bond" with that bony ridge.
I should also note that the eyebrows grow back very fast so if you're the bushy-eyebrowed type (like me) you may have to shave them quite often.
