    Further:

    If we follow Lester's reasoning and re-read he original post:

    DUE TO RECENT FINANCIAL PROBLEMS, BUDGET CUTS, AND THE RISING COST OF ELECTRICITY

    So if anyone wants to see it "back on", send me all your extra money & I'll forward it right along to the proper authorities... and they'll pay for the 'legtricity to turn it back on.....

    Rumor has it that a major company in the financial sector is pooling investor funds to put in a bid to purchase the light from the government. If they are successful, the investors will control all rights and access to the light, as well as when to turn the light on and off.

    Purely speculative. Although, maritime applications are being discussed as part of the bargaining process.

    NASA has determined that the light you see is that of a supernova, travelling at unimaginable velocity towards Earth where it will incinerate the entire planet in the very near future. Shoppers are therefore advised to shop early to avoid the last minute apocaplyptic rush.

    Bottled water and sunscreen are highly recommended.

    This just in: Breaking news!!

    The Supernova traveling at unimaginable velocity toward earth, will most likely begin impacting the gravitational forces of Pluto's orbit as early as 3015...

    These things are huge, but at the same time, so distant that the look like a small light at the end of a tunnel.... :rolleyes: Scientists ask any backyard astronomers to keep a sharp eye on the "light" to make sure it doesn't come closer, faster than anticipated. :eek: Your first hint is that it will look like it's getting bigger!!! :wave:

    NASA has been known to be a bit off in calculations in the past... So this estimate of 3015, could in fact, be a few hundred or so years off...wall1

    It's not a super nova. NASA is just feeding you guys a line of B.S. They are trying to confuse and fool everyone with this story. Just like the one about men on the moon. Man you guys are so gullible.

    What it actually is, is an alien power source from the UFO that crashed at Roswell. Now that is the honest to goodness truth. I swear.

    Why did they wait so long to activate it? could it be that they weren't using Eveready batteries?

    First off, its the Energizer bunny. He was sent into the tunnel to beat his drum and charge it, however reports are that witness accounts claim to have heard a distant drum beating a scream and then silence. The bunny has not been seen since. :twisted:
