Everyone forgot to turn off their lights at 8:30p.m. I think it’s because it’s a chore to turn off your lights at 8:30p.m. If I were the general population, I’d find it a chore to get up, turn off my lights and then sit in the dark for an hour.
I’ll admit, I forgot to do it. It’s a shame because I had candles ready and everything.

California is getting rid of dark coloured cars. It’s because their air conditioning has to work harder to cool down the passengers. It makes sense, of course. It’s a basic rule of science: dark colours=keeps in heat, light colours=reflects heat.
For the sake of the planet or not, it does seem to be a restraint on free will, sorta. But then again, why would you buy a dark coloured car if you lived in California, God’s Metropolitan Furnace?
