Anyone heard of this? Someone sent me an email and I googled it and there are a couple of forums that talk about it. It's gonna be on Sept. 27, and people are going to turn off their lights from 21:50 to 22:00 hrs in order to let the earth "breath". Anyone doing this?

Wahey, a bunch of people are going to switch their lights off at a certain time. This completely ignores the time zone factor, during that time many people won't need lights anyway. This idea is stupid.


Yip.

[quote="'Tommy[fin"]']So the question is, which time zone are you talking about
ummm, yea, i forgot to say that it's depends on your time zone, I guess they don't want everything to go off in every country at the same time, but i doubt much people are gonna do this anyways

I'd say this is the most irrelevant post in the thread. (short of mine)

Respectively to what? people don't just say two things and then say respectively. it has to be in context.

I quoted the guy saying, "What about the time zones", I assumed people were going to read the quote and my answer and make the connection that it's respectively to their time zone but I guess I wasn't that clear

Now its getting a little too much work...
Like in 10 mins i've gotta find out where she lives, catch her on the way, convince her the blackout is for 20mins, not 10, then do my thing in the dark (which is gonna be quite a challenge again) and then leave before the lights turn back on...

What time is that in Greenwhich Mean Time?
If it's at like 4am there is no need because all my lights will be off anyway as i'll be fast asleep.

I think it actually costs more energy when some couple of thousand people turns the lights off and on, then when they just let it burn.
