July 28, 2007

Have you ever heard of a little thing called the "Industrial Revolution"?

I hate gas and cannot see the point of it. Why would anyone (architect, builder, or home-owner) choose gas over electricity? Electricity doesn't make a habit of escaping from the cables, you don't need Carbon Mon-electricity detectors, you don't need to panic if the Pilot Electric Light goes out, it can't blow your house up; it's just better.

We've been generating electricity to power stuff since 1881; that's fast approaching 130 years ago! Why, then, are houses still built using gas (well, I assume they're still built; they still exist, at least)? Why is British Gas still in business (presumably because they also started offering electricity)?

So here's a suggestion: why not drag your home kicking and screaming into the 19th Century by dispensing with your gas supply and switching to electricity...
