Party Pooper Warning Light

I was visiting a great youth club last night, awesome bunch of teens and a superb team! I had a lot of fun even if I did get beaten at Table Tennis by Chris and Chris(Bob). Anyway here’s the blogworthy funny story:
There was a bit of a group time and the end of which there was a prayer. As the prayer ended everyone shouted ‘AMEN’ really loud and looked up at the ceiling. As the ‘Amen’ resounded around the hall a light fitted to the rafters came on, lit up then went off. Everyone then went back to chatting, dancing to 80’s music (true), table tennis, making cookies and the like!
What was that?” I asked
Anyway, it turns out the “God Light” as the group call it is intended more as a ‘party pooper’ light! It’s a system fitted by the residents association (from the houses by the hall). If the noise reaches a certain volume the light comes on as a visual warning. If the warning is not heeded and the volume continues then ALL (I mean ALL) the electricity to the hall is cut off!
All credit to the group for redeeming he most officious piece of electronics I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED!

  1. Wonderful! I was once in a Blues bar in Amsterdam, which had a decibel cut out… it started with a green, then amber, then red light before cutting off the power to the stage… which everyone just took as a good chance to get a beer in!
    On a slightly similar not I remember our whole school gettign detention once because during assembly we had the hymn “To he who would valiant be…” it was silent except for the last line of each verse when (spontaneously) everyon sang at the top of their voices… “TO BE A PILGRIM!”… why I don’t know but it was very funny at the time!…. teenagers eh?

  2. sounds great. Do they do one for behaviour level, if it gets too bad loud sirens and flashing lights shut down the club? Maybe I should go have another coffee ….
