Flick off the power company 

Sick of energy barons controlling the White House? Want to send them a message that says, "I don't need your stinking electricity, you rat bastards!"? Well, now you can.

An e-mail has been circulating that calls for a three-hour voluntary blackout on June 21, the first day of summer. Those wishing to stick it to the man should turn off and unplug everything electronic in their house from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Since the blackouts will supposedly be carried out in all time zones, the power protest will theoretically roll across the planet.

Then again, there's always the possibility that people care more about a Friends re-run than energy policies.

The e-mail calls the blackout "a simple protest and a symbolic act. Let them know we want ... an end to over-exploitation and misuse of the earth's resources."

Creative Loafing hasn't identified the mad geniuses behind the e-mail (we're working on it, OK?). However, the message can be viewed on's website.
