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.


  1. So cynically virtuous of you. It gives me great faith in your creative abilities that you can turn a good deed into something nasty and spiteful. ;-)

  2. They're charging so much because manufacturing is down, and they have to make up their operating costs somewhere. Residential it is!

  3. Hey, Scrib!

    I wouldn't be so bitter in my posts if I didn't make them from work while I'm waiting for Word to open a freaking file from SharePoint. The Server's 25 feet away, and it takes long enough for me to get a couple paragraphs pounded out to open a god damned document that I'd rather not be writing anyway.

    Maybe I wouldn't be so bitter, anyway. I dug up the hate garden and planted Sun flowers there years ago, but there may be a core of "fuck you, existence" left down deep somewhere.
