Earth Hour? Not having any of it thanks. I already do more to ‘save’ the earth from myself than most of my neighbors. More hysteria from folks who won’t be content until we are living in grass huts while mommy and daddy try to save the family from starving on the one acre patch of land granted by the Earth Firsters to the Kulaks…
recycling? Check. Including separating the little plastic windows from the interminable junk mail – which just drives my wife crazy;
composting? Check. Been doing that since i could peel a potato safely – thanks mom and dad;
second hand car? Check. Of course this makes me an enemy of labour by denying them their god given right to union manufacturing jobs. F*ck you buddy, the earth must come first;
reel mower? Check. on-line banking? Check. turn the furnace off at night? Check. use dishwater in the veggie garden? Check. [no, really – you’d be surprised at how tasty the cucumbers turn out]
I do this voluntarily because I want to . I don’t lecture my neighbours, family or friends and I sure as hell am not going to be guilted into showing my ‘love’ for the earth because the goracle and wwf and assorted other do gooders say I must. If you love civilization, freedom and the use of reason, keep on all the lights you need on Saturday. Take Back the Night.
Lights on Baby!
now this is just too cool…..
Its about damn time for some of that global warming around here. High tomorrow of -1, with no prospect of substantially warmer weather for at least another two weeks. End of March and I still have snow banks three feet high. Hell, if I leave the lights on during earth hour, I might just stand a chance of moving bicycling weather a little bit closer…that can’t be bad right?
Why are there fewer burglaries? Because it’s not worth the effort? I wonder if this is simply a cyclical thing and depending on the depths of the next economic crisis, burglary makes a comeback as no-one has anything anymore.
Update: March 21 2008:
