tyranny of the plug

Whenever I am at the gym, I am constantly thinking that it is dumb that I am using energy to run the treadmill I am on. Shouldn’t it work like the hamster on the wheel, with my activity creating energy?

The comes along the "Tyranny of the Plug." Don’t you just love that name? Do you feel like you are a slave to the plug-in? We need energy for everything…not just working out. Dick van Hoff designed a chopper, blender, mixer, and lemon squeezer, made of cast iron, glass and wood that are hand powered! No need for electricity to run these guys. Lovely don’t you think?
