What are some good ideas to waste some electricity?

I'm looking around the house for random things to plug in... I'm gonna try to run so much stuff that my circuit breaker sounds like I'm microwaving popcorn!!!

What are YOU going to do to piss off the watermelons?

My dad had a container of DDT that he found under a house several years ago. I think he has since disposed of it though, I'm not sure. I should get him to go dump it out for this special day if he still has it.

Ha ha ha. How timely.


I was in my beautiful, hard earned, perfect kitchen about twenty minutes ago...when I realized that the lighting system was going to be totally FUCKED by this bullshit ban on incadescent lightbulbs.

In a alcohol indused rage I went to

http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=partners.pt_index

and

http://www.epa.gov/

and sent them emails saying "fuck you".


I don't care if its childish. I'm fucking sick and tired of these people. If they want to meet me on the playground at 3:30 I'm all for it, but my only recourse to truly express the way that I feel about this bullshit at this point is to cuss people out.

Anyway, I was just ranting to my wife about how on the day that I can't get incadescent lightbulbs, and I have to replace all the fixtures in my house (and my wonderful kitchen is fucked), that I will spend every last penny I have to keep ever single fucking light fixture on in my house 24/7. Fuck these assholes.



...


So...I pledge and solemnly swear, that in order to celebrate this fucking bullshit, I will flush both toilets in my home 100 times on that day, leave every facet running 24 hours, and ever single light on in my home. Oh, and I am also going to go 4-wheeling in my truck and also ride my ATV. I will run my hoses to both my outside water facet's directly to the manholes and leave the water on all day long. I will put up a sign in my front yard that says "Fuck you, I'm paying for it", and go about my business.

Also, I am going to expend as much lead ammunition as possible that day shooting varmint animals that I don't intend to eat from the back of my truck and/or ATV.


ANYBODY WHO DOESN'T LIKE IT CAN SUCK MY FUCKING DICK RIGHT AFTER THEY GET DONE KISSING MY FUCKING ASS.


eta: I am also going to run my gas fireplace and grill all day too.

During Earth Hour, I will be in port and will burn approximately 300 gallons of diesel fuel. I will pump so-called greenhouse gases out my boilers and into the atmosphere. I will attempt to catch little fishies in my condensers and kill them. (I found a puffer fish inside one of my auxiliary condensers a few months ago ) To top it all off, I will take a dump that will make its way into the legendary Shit River.

Burn some tires
Dump a bunch of lead in the rivers, streams, lakes

First, I'm going to throw some old batteries in the trash. After that, I'm going to change my oil, and dump the old oil in the gutter, followed by the breaking of fluorescent bulbs. Finally, I'm going to jump in my V8 gas hog pickup, and drive around aimlessly in city traffic, just to burn fuel.

Earth Hour invites one billion people in more than 2800 cities representing 83 countries to turn off their lights for one hour – tonight, Saturday, March 28 from 8:30pm to 9:30pm in their local time zone. On this day, cities around the world, including Paris, Sydney, London, Cairo, New York, Los Angeles and Cape Town, will join together to demonstrate their commitment to energy conservation and sustainability. Here's how you can participate:

Great, now I have to stay up to 9:30 PM just to spite their asses.

The Real Meaning of Earth Hour


by Keith Lockitch (March 25, 2009)

On Saturday, March 28, cities around the world will turn off their lights to observe “Earth Hour.” Iconic landmarks from the Sydney Opera House to Manhattan’s skyscrapers will be darkened to encourage reduced energy use and signal a commitment to fighting climate change.

While a one-hour blackout will admittedly have little effect on carbon emissions, what matters, organizers say, is the event’s symbolic meaning. That’s true, but not in the way organizers intend.

We hear constantly that the debate is over on climate change––that man-made greenhouse gases are indisputably causing a planetary emergency. But there is ample scientific evidence to reject the claims of climate catastrophe. And what’s never mentioned? The fact that reducing greenhouse gases to the degree sought by climate activists would, itself, cause significant harm.

Politicians and environmentalists, including those behind Earth Hour, are not calling on people just to change a few light bulbs, they are calling for a truly massive reduction in carbon emissions––as much as 80 percent below 1990 levels. Because our energy is overwhelmingly carbon-based (fossil fuels provide more than 80 percent of world energy), and because the claims of abundant “green energy” from breezes and sunbeams are a myth––this necessarily means a massive reduction in our energy use.

People don’t have a clear view of what this would mean in practice. We, in the industrialized world, take our abundant energy for granted and don’t consider just how much we benefit from its use in every minute of every day. Driving our cars to work and school, sitting in our lighted, heated homes and offices, powering our computers and countless other labor-saving appliances, we count on the indispensable values that industrial energy makes possible: hospitals and grocery stores, factories and farms, international travel and global telecommunications. It is hard for us to project the degree of sacrifice and harm that proposed climate policies would force upon us.

This blindness to the vital importance of energy is precisely what Earth Hour exploits. It sends the comforting-but-false message: Cutting off fossil fuels would be easy and even fun! People spend the hour stargazing and holding torch-lit beach parties; restaurants offer special candle-lit dinners. Earth Hour makes the renunciation of energy seem like a big party.

Participants spend an enjoyable sixty minutes in the dark, safe in the knowledge that the life-saving benefits of industrial civilization are just a light switch away. This bears no relation whatsoever to what life would actually be like under the sort of draconian carbon-reduction policies that climate activists are demanding: punishing carbon taxes, severe emissions caps, outright bans on the construction of power plants.

Forget one measly hour with just the lights off. How about Earth Month, without any form of fossil fuel energy? Try spending a month shivering in the dark without heating, electricity, refrigeration; without power plants or generators; without any of the labor-saving, time-saving, and therefore life-saving products that industrial energy makes possible.

Those who claim that we must cut off our carbon emissions to prevent an alleged global catastrophe need to learn the indisputable fact that cutting off our carbon emissions would be a global catastrophe. What we really need is greater awareness of just how indispensable carbon-based energy is to human life (including, of course, to our ability to cope with any changes in the climate).

It is true that the importance of Earth Hour is its symbolic meaning. But that meaning is the opposite of the one intended. The lights of our cities and monuments are a symbol of human achievement, of what mankind has accomplished in rising from the cave to the skyscraper. Earth Hour presents the disturbing spectacle of people celebrating those lights being extinguished. Its call for people to renounce energy and to rejoice at darkened skyscrapers makes its real meaning unmistakably clear: Earth Hour symbolizes the renunciation of industrial civilization.
