Earth Hour

Earth Hour: an opportunity for well-meaning people to do something about global warming, where 'something' means sitting on their arses in the dark for an hour, instead of doing something really useful, like reading a physics textbook and learning how solar power works, or doing something to earn money that could go to an environmental charity or be invested in an alternative energy company, or, or, or, or, or, or or or or or.

We used to have earth hours all the time. We lived in caves, were hungry and filthy for all of our miserable 20 year lives, and couldn't yet begin to imagine how much we would achieve, once we'd discovered the magic of being able to stay awake and socialise and think and learn, long after it had turned dark outside.
