Haven't seen a recent thread to remind everyone to turn on your lights tonight. 8:30 is enviro wacko time. The greenies want everyone to turn their lights off for global warming. Keep it bright out there.

I propped my refrigerator and freezer doors open.

My 300W Peavey guitar amp (which hasn't been used since college, approx 15 years ago) is on.

What is it about hippies that evokes this visceral reaction in me?

Edit:  I've decided to do laundry tonight instead of Sunday night, so I can run the washer and dryer.

I'm With you! I'm going to go around to all of my neighbors and borrow some extra shit I can plug into the wall outlets. I will turn on every light I can get my hands on. Fuck these fucking liberal retard alarmist kool aid drinking obama loving shit bag hippie environ(mental)ist assholes with a carbon emitting gasoline powered dildo.

I posted this in team  and not one comment from anyone. So I'm reposting this here so some like minded people will see it. And here is a picture of my house with all the lights on.

8:30 local for whatever zone you're in.

What do you mean "jacking up your bill"?  Electricity costs anywhere from 5 cents to 18 cents per kilowatt.  Let's say it is 10 cents for this example.  You could turn on 10 additional 75 watt light bulbs from 8:30 to 9:30 and it will cost you a whole extra $0.075 on your bill.  That is right, 7.5 cents, to protest the hippies for an hour.

If you are using the CFL lights I think 75 watt equivalent lights use 15 watts.  So that whole hour would cost you a wopping 1.5 cents.

Is it that time of year already?  I'm going to do something similar to last year:

Outside grilling, using the headlights of several running cars to light the way. Every light, TV, fan, and radio in the house will be on. Dinner will be a choice of entrees:

Sage-stuffed spotted owl, lovingly cooked over an endangered California Redwood fire.

Baby harp seal, clubbed less than 24hrs ago. Best served medium rare, also cooked over redwood. This will be accompanied by pate of humpback whale, in keeping with the arctic environmentalist theme.

I have a limited number of elephant ivory serving trays this year.

For a festive touch, I will run multiple strands of Christmas lights and a few 1KW movie/theater lights run by generators. No party is complete without good lighting.

The crowning glory will be 3 running tractor-trailers, each with 2 carbon-arc searchlights. They burn holes in the sky with their brightness, and with their burning carbon filament sending volumes of greenhouse gasses to the heavens.

Vegans are invited to graze in the carefully manicured pasture across the street.

I light my house with kleg lights.  It'll cost me more than that.

I stand by my previous sentiment.  The enviro-weenies have their panties in wad.  My reaction is to do nothing.
I'm not letting the granola eating weirdos change my lifestyle.  Not even by running around my house turning everything on. They're enough of a PITA as it is.

I have a slightly different point of view from watching way too much of the Discovery Channel and the show "How the planet was made".  Cutting carbon footprints, reducing CO2, "going green", it's all a bunch of crap.  The US used to be rotated 90 degrees and half of the US was south of the equator.  The forces that moved the US to where it is at now are still here.  Vulcanoes are still forming and errupting.  Continents are being pushed together, others are being torn apart.  The sun is putting out less solar flares right now but will eventually put out more.  "Going Green" isn't going to do anything to stop the planet from doing whatever the heck it wants and the planetary forces are much greater than anything us humans can ever counter.  When we can stop earthquakes, silence vulcanoes, and stop glaciers from moving, then we might have a chance to actually "save the planet".  Until then, I plan on enjoying the earth and it's resources to the fullest.  The hippies will never convert me!

I live on a main road through town.  I'm sure plenty of hippies have driven by.  If I upset even one hippy...then I'm happy.
