So tonight(March 28th) at 8:30, many cities and families turned off their lights for one hour.

I'm not exactly sure on the exact definition of it, but it's basically a statement to represent people that care about the world and stuff. Basically you were supposed to turn out ALL un-necessary lights(everything except like traffic lights for cities and stuff) and sit and have a nice little chat about the future or just some nice little family time.


Did you do it?

I usually have the lights off, so yeah, I guess so.

I absolutely participated.

As I typically consume energy in an efficient fashion, I decided to become involved in "Earth Hour".

I turned on my television, toaster, microwave, computers, portable heater, lights, outside heating element, and would have run the washing machine if I'd had clothes to put into it.

Were I a criminal, I'd have chosen this hour to strike, as many places had reduced or lowered lighting.

Damn, logic bunny, didn't think of that. You are one smart cookie! (Er...bunny)

I was going to. I was watching TV, and I completely forgot about it. Although, we did turn off alot of our lights, completely unrelated, for quite some time. Does that count? ;)

Nope. But had I remembered, I'd have turned on every light in the house as a big "Screw you!" to the lie that is global warming.

I didn't know about this but I did leave my apartment today and my bf was asleep because he works graveyard. Does that count?

I'll tell you what, since I missed it, I will shut off everything in my house right now for 8 hours to make up for it. Sound fair? Good.

Oh yeah, one more thing:

Good night!

I didn't do it. I knew it was tonight, but my parents had some friends over.

Sorry, no, didn't participate. Was watching baseball on MLB Network when that was going on. Had heard about it on TV all this past week.

It's pretty much useless. Everyone participates by turning off all their lights for an hour. Then, when that hour is up, they turn them back on and give themselves a pat on the back, while burning a ton of electricity untill next years earth hour. Nah, not my thing. Instead I practice good energy efficiency all year round.

Forgot about it, but I didn't have my light on anyway. Would you believe that a CFL, with a life of 10,000 hours or something, started to fail in that hour?

Never even heard of it.

I guess Earth hour isn't a worldwide event.

Well that was a joke.

Although, is it 8:30 for everybody (so every time zone 'does' the hour at a different time), or is it one particular hour that everybody does at the same time? Because if it's the latter, then somebody's sleeping through it anyway!

Either way, I've seen no adverts, no announcements, no people dressed as trees, no slow news day filler, no nothing to make this hour known...
