Today ? Too late…

As if I’m not gonna watch the Habs tonight. Ignore my phone ? Right. Want me to turn off my heat and freeze too ?

What is the point anyway ? Do I need to prepare for some upcoming mass abandonment of technology by society, like the retarded end of Battlestar Galactica ?

Tell ya what, next winter-time power failure I have, I’ll reflect on this then, while I shiver in the cold.

Sounds like the clowns from Earth Day . Wanted every one to turn off all electrical devices including lites at 8.00PM Saturday to save the planet. Except for the obligatory Gov departments and a few PC high profile companies like the local casino (that just turned of the external lites for an hour) no one bothered…

Too late. Maybe next time we can get a bit of warning?
Kind of like advertising for “No Crap Day” right after I’ve eaten at Taco Bell.
