TNB to COMPLETELY shut down for Earth Hour?!

Damn you TNB. I had hoped that this would happen. How cool would be it, you think? There were crazy rumors flying around that TNB would COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN during Earth Hour 2009!!!! For a solid 1 hour from 8:30pm to 9:30pm, there would have been a nation-wide black out!! Imagine the things we can do for a complete 1 hour without electricity!!! The looting!!! The riots!!! The wild crazy sexxxxx in the dark!!!! A whole buffet of opportunities beckons!!!! But alas, it wasn’t to be. But being down-right realistic now, what are the chances of a complete shut-down going to happen? Zippo. Here’s a clip from ‘The Star’ confirming the sad, boring news:

"KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) will continue to supply electricity during Earth Hour tomorrow.

Its president and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh said some TNB consumers had thought that power supply would not be available during Earth Hour from 8.30pm to 9.30pm.

“We received numerous calls from concerned customers enquiring whether electricity supply would be turned off this Saturday,” he said in a statement yesterday.

He said although TNB would not be shutting down operations during Earth Hour, the corporation was nevertheless in support of the event."

When you want it to happen, it doesn't happen. And yet when you don't want it to happen, it happens. Beh.
