Earth Hour

Care to take part in a Global Ritual of Endarkenment? It's like Enlightenment, but it takes place in the dark.

Tomorrow at 8:30 PM, shut off all the power in your house for an hour. Spend an hour in candlelight and conversation or board games instead of harsh fluorescent replacement bulbs and whatever's on TV at the moment. Take your place in creating a wave of endarkenment that spreads around the globe.

Do it, or the global Green Initiative Mind Police Fairy Zombies will eat your Carbon Footprint-Leaving brains. They're almost as bad as the Ba'al Malachim, dude!

I'm going to do it because I want to stick it to my power company. Bastards. Glad it helps the earth too, but if everyone in MD cuts their power for an hour, that will eat up their profits big time. After seeing what they charge for the pittance of energy I use (Yes, I DO need two flat screen monitors in my living room, a computer, printer, Xbox, Cable TV Descrambler, and associated sound system components, thank you very much), I can't wait to get them back.

In fact, I'm going to start cutting teh power for an hour every day. That'll fix 'em.

And it will help the Earth. How many chances do you get to do something spiteful and good at the same time? This is a golden opportunity.
