Tomorrow night. Don't forget.

Better to light a candle than curse a hippie.

Hippies burn well, do they?

With a sort of a wierd blue smoke.

If they hold a wire in each hand and stand in a puddle of patchouli oil it's like a Glade aromatherapy plug-in.

Can I beat a hippie with a big brass candlestick?

Old NFO said...

Hmm, time to dig out the sodium fixtures!

BobG said...

Not only do they burn well, but they probably have a pretty good carbon footprint, too.

Anyone who thinks shutting their houselights off for an hour is gonna make a gnats fart of difference obviously can't do math.

Hey, wait - that'd be most people.

Word Verification: vuvefre. I shall spend next week trying to convince people that that's a French term for "eco-awareness". Fifty pee sez I can get a baker's dozen in 7 days.

Idiots.

Don't they study history?

If we did not have global warming, Tam would be living under a mile thick block of ice right now. Canada would be completely covered and the ocean front property we have today would be a couple hundred feet up from the water that is miles away.

Global warming is what melted the last ice age, and made the US the breadbasket of North America.

Global warming is a good thing and frankly I am shocked that after the long hard winder we have had that folks are not thinking about promoting it.


Turn off your lights for an hour? Baah. If you want to make a difference try not using any oil or any oil derived products for a day then call us.

How can we counter the hippies? I know. Turn on all the incandescent lights in the house and garage. Then I'll get in the F 150 and my better half can get in her Trailblazer SS and we can go meet for a date at Wal-Mart. 700 horsepower! Take that you filthy hippies. Oh, and we'll discharge some spray cans just in case there's still some CFC's in said cans....

Myron said...

Thanks for the reminder. I need to get to Home Depot and Lowes and buy a bunch more incandescents while they're still legal.

Wait... when is this?

I really don't give a damn, I just want to make sure I do absolutely nothing different than what I do every night.

That's right, Zuzu. That's right! Atta boy, Clarence.

"Klieg lights". {sigh}

There is a lot of people out there who ought to do their homework, and it occurs to me that I might find a market next year. After all: I am a professional.

A single six-bar of 1kw PAR-64's would do the trick very nicely around most peoples' homes: enough to bake pizzas right there on the garage floor, and the neighbors will think E.T. is partying it up across the street.

I can manage AC distribution, too.

Just think: "Official Lighting Director to The New Infidels".

I like that. I can do that.
