Turning off a light

A light in one of the rooms of my house was on. I decided that I didn’t need the light on any longer. I pressed the light switch thereby turning off the light.

    This is very interesting, by putting the light switch into the off position, it turned the light off. Never thought that could be possible.

    … i started writing a comment, thereby writing what i needed to say.

    Woah, dude, that’s wild

  4. Chris says:

    I find turning off lights to be an inefficent waste of time. If I were you, I would not turn them on in the first place.

  5. Ken says:

    Exciting! Singlehandedly creating a short in the series circuit of your lighting system, and creating infinite resistance at the point of the switch. If only I had the capacitance to do so.

  6. Mel says:

    Yeah, I do that a lot too.

  7. Good to see this blog’s got an ecological conscience.
    Very adequate.

    Your entry would have been much more interesting if you had mentioned a dimmer switch.

    I died of boredom trying to read this blog. I just closed my eyes and fell dreamlessly asleep. But personal nonexistence is still less boring than this blog.

    okay dude has problems

  17. damn it says:

    why use a light swich to turn the light off??? :O
    U could have just pressed a AC switch πŸ˜€

  18. josh says:

    My light switch is broken. therfore i can not turn on, or off, my light switch. This is both non-helpful and helpful. It’s helpful because If I leave the light switch in the ‘On’ posistion, there is no need to use energy on lifting my right or left hand to turn it off. It’s non-helpful because the second I use my right or left foot to step into the room, my eye sight is black.

    I still think the Paris Hilton blog is more boring than this one.

    In response to Jude of the world, I must insist that you cease your incessant butchery of the english language, and learn to speak properly, before returning to this blog. Your speech could provoke a retaliation, thereby creating some minor form of excitement.

    The switch says “off” and I want it to “dim”…the switch said I was “dim.”
