The Conservative Leadership Foundation has launched a campaign to recognise and celebrate “Human Achievement Hour”.
During Human Achievement Hour, people around the world will be recognising the incredible accomplishments of the human race.
Originally conceived by the Competitive Enterprise Institute in 2009, Human Achievement Hour coincides with the earth hour campaign but salutes those who keep the lights on and produce the energy that makes human achievement possible.
Millions of people around the world will be showing their support for human achievement by simply going about their daily lives. While earth hour activists will be left in the dark, Human Achievement Hour participants will be going to the cinema, enjoying a hot meal, driving their car or watching television.
There is really no limit to how you can support Human Achievement Hour just like there is no limit to what mankind can achieve.
Human Achievement Hour 2010 will be between 8.30pm and 9.30pm on Saturday 27 March.
Do it! We have come a long way since Ugg first said to Ogg, “Wouldn’t it be a cunning plan to bring the fire into the cave?” Our species is brilliant as long as it doesn’t try not to be and descends into miserablism. Raise a glass to them all! To Watt and Stephenson and Tesla and all the rest!
Because this is what happens when the enemy win:
The righteous can shiver in the dark for an hour and fuck ‘em with a warp-factor 9 fuckulence driven by a nuclear storm-drive powered fuckulating machine because I want a spaceship and not a bastarding yurt.
Do you want to see C-Beams glitter off the Tannhäuser Gate or do you want to sit down to a mess of cold potage with Jonathon Porritt? If the later then you are a profound cunt of the first discharge and have neatly selected your own Hell. Enjoy it you masochistic twats! We’ll be in parking orbit around Enceladus having cocktails whilst watching outgassings that are almost as spectacular as a lentil-boiler’s farts.
Earth hour and human achievement hour presents a stark choice…
“Simples!” says that deeply annoying – ought to be kicked to death – car insurance meerkat*. I don’t just want to see attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I want to be the bugger wot dun it! Tree funerals! How absolutely, utterly, stupendously fucking gay is that?
Right, I’m now off to burn a staggering quantity of trash that has built-up since the effing council decided to go Keira Knightley on the bin collections. I’m doing my bit for carbon (re)cycling.
Per ardua ad astra!
*Admittedly not quite as annoying as that fat cunt from the Go Compare ads.
