His neighbors must DESPISE him...
I can just see the little wheel spinning away in the meter, gradually turning cherry red from friction...

His electric bill is about $400 for the month... a lot of sponsors chip in as well for the costs, including our place of employment, where he'* the director of engineering and I'm just a lowly intern

It'* done for charity, it'* a hit with people all over Toronto and area who come by and fill up the donation box. Gets all the news coverage too.
