" As the demand for digital organs increases, so does the demand for electricity. As we burn more fossil fuels to generate power for these instruments, the climate has changed, causing longer rainy seasons in the areas where electronic organ parts are farmed. This year's diode crop may have yielded enough parts for two hundred years. " Surplus parts are packaged and sold as tasty, nutritious snack foods. " Please note that I am a pipe organ builder, so not all of the aforemention ed facts may be accurate."   Okay, I know it's poor manners to quote the whole post, but this was just too good not to!   Mr. Gluck adds a disclaimer, but his facts are pretty much "right on", except that the typical digital organ requires much less electricity than = a pipe organ blower.   D
