Lights out for Brexit

There's been a suggestion that people should show their disapproval for Brexit by turning off their lights and as many electrical appliances as possible on the 31st at 11PM for 10 minutes.

The reason?  Well, it'll show a huge LOSS of electrical usage you see.  That'll stick it to the man.

Yes, you read that right.  Let's turn everything off for 10 minutes, plunging the country into darkness and saving electricity - that 10 minute loss will really make a mess of the grid.

Can you imagine a street of houses with no lights on at 11PM? Shock horror!  I mean, it's not like people are in bed at that time of night, with the lights off, is it?

*Rolls eyes*

This has got to be the stupidest protest idea yet!  If you want it to show up on the National Grid then turn everything on, you clown!  All lights, iron, kettle, your electric blanket.

Maybe even pop the toaster in whilst you're having a bath.



Mind your own business

Back in October the BBC had an article about a woman who sold her house, made a profit, then squandered said profits.  She's annoyed because the bank didn't stop her spending her money.

"I went to the bank to withdraw the money and they gave it to me without any questions", she says.

Well, yes, because it's your money.  She claims the bank should have questioned her when she was withdrawing the cash to make sure she was spending it wisely.

I'm sorry, but what?  Imagine everytime you went to a cash machine and if the value was over a certain amount you'd be asked a question to confirm.

"You are withdrawing £100.  You're not going to spend it on shoes you don't need are you? <Y/N>"

It's just ridiculous and just another example of people who won't take responsibility for their own decisions.  Why should the bank contact her to make sure she knows that she's wasting her money?  She claims she'd welcome the "extra support" from the bank, but I would hazard a guess that if her bank did contact her she'd be moaning about how it's her money and she can do what she likes with it and to get off my case, you're not my mum.

I'm amazed just how stupid the world is getting, it's a never ending stream of stupidity.

Some people just seem to be unable to go about their daily lives without blaming everyone but themselves for THEIR decisions or actions.  We all make mistakes, most of the time we know we've done something stupid and we hold our hand up to it.  I know I do.  I don't blame everyone else because of something I've done.
