# 1 Earth Hour Exemptions
03-27-2010, 05:27 PM
Trivial or not, but seeing as I spend all damn year cutting down on and saving electricity, I feel I should be AND WILL BE exempt from this ridiculous "Earth Hour" that some genius has come up with.

So, what's YOUR excuse?

My excuse is that its a pointless excersize in some self-congratulatory social white horse parade and doesn't raise any 'awareness' (I'm aware of cancer, I havent fixed it yet) or practical benefits of any kind

If i want to feel good about myself without putting any effort in to really achieving anything there are a whole load of better ways to do it!

I know how you feel.

I spent most of today organising the event in 1/2 a million square feet of office space in London. Closed off the light across the estate for 1 hours at 20:30.. We started doing it at 18:30 and finsihed putting them back on at 23:45 lol
