If you want to discredit the idea of energy saving, bring a crowd of pensioners to the square, set a little stall to sell energy saving bulbs… In April Moscow held an auction of oldsters in support of the Russian government initiative in the sphere of energy saving. Active pensioners decided to buy 1000 energy saving bulbs on their own money in public and thus, to show that even they, the pensioners, are ready to support the Russian government and the president in their initiative to adopt energy saving technology. In order everyone who wished to buy the bulbs there was set one (!) tiny stall fated to be the hottest spot of the auction. Upon the official part some insanity began…
Activists called for support of energy saving initiative from the stage and stigmatized those who are afraid of anything new. For some unknown reason the main opponent of the progress became the leader of the communist party and activists prepared a special present – a box with glow bulbs.
Many of them came from afar but by special buses. Nobody confessed who sponsored their trip.
After the presentation the most interesting events began – bulbs distribution sale.
Serious attack of the stall.
The bulb cost 100 rubles, but there was no getting rid of those who wanted badly to buy the bulbs…
Fortunately nobody was hurt. Probably “lines experience” from the past.
