Environmental Activism for the Lazy


My friend sent me this link for Earth Hour.
All you have to do is turn your lights off for one hour on March 29, 2008 at 8:00PM. That's it.

This is far easier than remembering to bring my reusable bags to the grocery store. (Everytime I forget, Al Gore cries.)

As with all endeavors in life, the question you have to ask here is this: will this get me laid? Probably not in and of itself, but being socially aware will certainly earn you big points with most chicks. Plus what else are you going to do with the lights off for an hour?

Who plans their lives that far in advance, though? By March, will we even be using electricity, or will we be powering our cities with our minds?

I'll see if I can manage in the dark. Peraps I'll take a long drive in my SUV that night and contemplate my activist lifestyle.

Men have a better chance of getting laid in the dark rather than in the light.

For women it's the reverse.

*coughs*

So, unless you're a coke fiend who never sleeps, you're pretty much an environmentalist?

IF it won't get me laid, can I at least drink a few beers and pull my dilly in the darkness? I'll put a rubbeband aound my wrist so my hand goes numb and I'll pretend it's someone else.

Why don't they just make the time to turn the lights off around 2:00 a.m.?

Whatever, to show that I'm on board, I am going to shut my lights off until March. Yeah!

Grant,

Of course not. I would never ask that of you. Or anyone really, but especially not you.

GkL,

Easy! I don't want SV coming down here and kicking my ass!

Dale,

Damn, I wish I would have thought of that! That rocks!

Pezda,

I don't make up the rules for these things. I was trying to do something right for a change. Cut me some slack will ya?

will this get me laid? haha. . .funny. You men. . .you're so funny.

McGone said...

I'll turn the lights off, sure, but while sitting in the dark, I will be spraying aerosol cans in the air. That'll teach Mother Earth!

Pezda's Ghost said...

Damn, you've responded to my comment before I could leave it. I guess I'll have to be quicker next time.

I didn't even mention what we were going to do in the dark yet. Is that Telepathy for the Lazy?

SkylersDad said...

Perhaps I will take that time to go club some seals.

Between the television, computer monitor and open refrigerator door I can see everything I need to see anyway.

Is that Eastern Standard time? Or what? Because I am 11 hours ahead of you. When do I turn have the maid turn off my lights?
