I’m not a huge fan of Earth Hour myself, and I’ve found it very difficult to pay attention to the sanctimonious screeching from both sides of the Earth Hour divide. I don’t need to read the self-righteous Age (Earth Hour sponsor) telling me about how a bunch of self-righteous people are going to turn off lights and power to make a point. Similarly, I don’t need to read self-righteous Andrew Bolt and self-righteous Tim Blair telling me about how a bunch of self-righteous people are going to turn on lights and power to make a point.
Whatever. I went out and watched my girlfriend play a blues gig at the pub and noted only how nice it was that the telly showing football in the corner was turned off for an hour.
I was surprised to read, however, that taking part in Earth Hour makes you homosexual. Thanks to Tim Blair for this useful information.
UPDATE X. Further proof, if proof be needed, that soccer is gay:
The Socceroos planned their own contribution to Earth Hour last night, deciding to turn off the lights during their scheduled team dinner.
