Top 10 (Weirdo) things you can do to keep entertained during a power outage
1 - Ice Creamocalypse
Launch yourself into your freezer with anything you can get your hands on - forks, knives, spatulas, CD cases... maybe even spoons! And destroy that slow melting ice cream
2."Love thy Neighbor as Thyself"
Chances are, they are going to be contemplating alcohol poisoning as well
3. Light a Fire
Now, I'm not saying you should go committing arson - even if your neighbors have been boring you for the past hour - put on "Fire" by the crazy world of Arthur Brown, scream "I am the god of hellfire" at the top of your voice, unleash the raw, neanderthal pyromaniac within, sharpen a curtain pole, hunt down a wild boar, have a hog roast! Or maybe just sit down and read a book by firelight if you're going to be less adventurous.
4 - Tell Scary Stories
5 - Light Switch Roulette
Turn off every switch you can find (if you work in a hospital, leave the life support machines alone) and indulge in a game of light switch roulette, the rules are simple and as follows: choose one item of a fairly insubstantial price that you would like, then, with this thought in mind, wait until you think the power's back on, if, upon flicking a switch, you are bathed in the shimmering golden glow of success then hop onto the interweb and get buying! If, however, you are met by the solitary 'click' of failure you must retire to bed and pray that in the morning you can pretend it was all a bad dream... until you want some ice cream.
6 - Drink!!
7 - How About them Littleuns'
If you have children, why not sit down and talk to them! Contrary to common belief children are not just there to disobey, cause havoc and spend your money... well, at least, that's not all they can do. You might find out something new about them!
8 - Astronomeasy
Take a stroll out your door and have a lie down on the ground - often during power outages the lack of ambient light from streetlamps means you can see a lot more stars than usual. Now you're thinking 'but I don't know any of the constellations!' well, truth is, nobody really does, people just make them up as they go along!
9 - Blindman's Bluff
Stroll around your humble abode and actually touch things without looking at them (note: try and avoid your knife racks / draws) people often don't realise just how awesome certain things they own feel - or how slightly disconcerting! try and navigate your way from one place to another without looking.
