Electricity For All
Contest Directions: [ With the upcoming holiday preparations the demand is on the rise for electrical decorations. Many consumers are stacking up "anything electrical" despite the high electricity bills they will face. ]
Electricity was invented by rubbing cats backwards. Which means every time you play a stereo somebody rubs a cat the wrong way. Please think about kittens next time you pay your electricity bill.
In this contest you are asked to electrify non-electrical things. Electrify them by adding wires, lights, sockets, electronics, etc. Your object of electrification should not be a live being (No robot dogs, zombie robots, people robots, electric fish, or plants / fruit). Example of entries could be electrified plumbing tools, sports equipment, dishes & cups, school items. Electrification of larger objects (e.g. Washington Monument) is also allowed.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Shoppers in the California Valley region are looking at more than price tags and competition from their neighbors when they begin looking for holiday lights to be used at their homes. Southern California Edison, the electricity provider that supplies electricity to approximately 120,000 customers in the area, wants people who intend to display holiday lights to pay attention to watts and kilowatt hours. The power company reminds customers that saving energy is important because of the state's multi-tiered rate system. Usage at the holiday season can boot a customer up to higher electricity bills. By way of example, a 150 bulb of icicle like exterior lights will cost a customer about $6.41 for 30 days. However, a 20 bulb string of standard outdoor lights will cost $3.15 for the same time period. Edison is suggesting that its customers use an automatic timer to control when holiday lights actually are turned on. The company also reminds people of safety precautions. This includes keeping electrical connections off of the ground as well as away from moisture. In addition, customers are told to use plastic zip cords as opposed to staples, nails or tacks to hang holiday lights.
