Today we discovered a use for glowsticks. Usually I'm dead against them, having had numerous eyes poked out by them whilst on a clubbing foray, but in the absensce of power, they're useful for blu-tacking to walls that would otherwise recieve more than their fair share of bumps and elbows in the pitch black. Whilst packing her things, Emma found about 6745 unused glow sticks, which we put to use, lighting our dark-ages themed abode.
If only there was a way of using them to heat water and charge laptops as well, we wouldn't need electricity.
We used this glowstick creation to point out to the electrician where the fuse box and main power to the flat should go, if they were working.
