Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Many TVs on for 7 hrs a day = over 4 kW = say 300 days a year = 1200 kW annually.

1200 kW is a lot of pedaling ;-)

Well I am still working on my giant interior wheel that you exercise within and power your home.

The problem that I have calculated is that hamster walking leaves no time for abusing the TV, thus removing the reason for hamster walking in the first place ;-)

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

it's all in the gearing, lube and bearings, i want one that you apply about 5g. pressure in the morning and the holographic flywheels do the rest.

i was visualising them spinning their turbines of fortune, sucking on fortified protein drinks.
