Insert Irish joke here.
The "International Lights Out" campaign took place Saturday March 29 at 8:00 PM. People all over the world were asked to turn off their electric lights. Here's an excerpt from a news report on the event:
" Ireland's more than 7,000 pubs elected not to take part - in part because of the risk that Saturday night revelers could end up smashing glasses, falling down stairs, or setting themselves on fire with candles."
