Maybe you should leave the light’s off.

Did you know that I can destroy the planet with a single lightbulb.

I got this off of Discovery.com

“Contemporary scientific theories tell us that what we may see as vacuum is only vacuum on average, and actually thriving with vast amounts of particles and antiparticles constantly appearing and then annihilating each other. It also suggests that the volume of space enclosed by a light bulb contains enough vacuum energy to boil every ocean in the world. Therefore, vacuum energy could prove to be the most abundant energy source of any kind. Which is where you come in. All you need to do is figure out how to extract this energy and harness it in some kind of power plant – this can easily be done without arousing too much suspicion – then surreptitiously allow the reaction to run out of control. The resulting release of energy would easily be enough to annihilate all of planet Earth and probably the Sun too. ”

Pretty interesting stuff.  I find it interesting the little factoids science holds. That everyday man is practically on the brink of destruction, and that we are blissfully unaware, or do not care. 

Some live in fear of the unknown, I like to think I embrace it. I’m going to buy a 4 pack of bulbs and get started.
