What time will I be turning on the Fender amp, playing my guitar through a digitech RP200 effects box running through my Peavey Mixer (with phantom power) to go with the Senheiser mic? The setup uses a lot of power! The article didn’t say. Oh, due to the power drain caused by all the equip, I also use a pre amp for additional phantom power. When I get cooking the neighborhood lights flicker..

I'm going to put my humidifier and dehumidifier in the same room and let them fight it out.

>>That is why the day was set, not by coincidence, on the birthday of Karl Marx.

April 22 is Lenin’s birthday.

I’ll fire up my pinball machines.
Each flip of the flipper is like turning on a vacuum cleaner in current consumption! LOL

Actually it’s not Marx’s birthday. Unfortunately his is right before my mother’s (that oughta thrill her) in May. And apparently, some local originators started with the March equinox (they love pagan dates), then somehow we ended up with a month later.

“Just do what you would do if you hadn’t read about this.”

That just looks like you are just ignorant of the movement’s plans.


No. It just looks like I use energy to better my life. I do not waste it and I do not compromise my quality of life to conserve it.

“Earth Hour” was LAST YEARS’s Current Truth, this year’s current truth is LYNCHING a Hispanic Guy with a Jewish-sounding last name, so that blacks will be angered enough to show up and vote for OBAMA in 2006.

Besides, it might remind the sheeple of the outrageously expensive Obama failures like Solyndra, and THINK!.

As I've done for many years now, I'm turning on EVERY light in the house @ 8:30 tonight. And doing a load of laundry.

As I've done for many years now, I turn off EVERY light in the house @9:00 pm. Because I go to bed.

BFD.

I have 7 TVs all hooked up to Uverse. Four refrigerators/freezers, and 5 or 6 computers. I don’t know, I lost count. I got hammered in the garage workshop watching some NCAA basketball and texting my college friends. I don’t care. Yeah, I can burn the coal tonight. The moderators won’t let me say what I think of these enviro-nazis.

I live in a 'dark area' on the map - I love it. I can see all the stars.

I shaved $30 a month off my electric bill - by my own methods - and I will NEVER have a government 'screw-you' mercury bomb in my lights. I save money to save money, not because the greenies, who have more light bulbs in their kitchens that I have in my whole house dictate to us.

Tonight, my house, and friends and neighbors will be lit like Christmas trees - and put a one night lit-up spot on the map in our area.

I have several, double 300-watt shop lights on stands. I’ll bring them out on the driveway and point them upward.

Hey, that's what I do! Except mine are in the backyard of the house, where busy roads and airplane flight paths can see them better. Plus every light goes on in the house.
