Chuck Norris killed the dinosaurs.

How about mandating that every piece of cardio equipment generate electricity? Someone in good shape can generate 100w for an hour. If each piece sees five hours of use per day, with the U.S. average of 10˘ per kilowatt-hour, in one year each machine would generate $18 worth of electricity!

Boom.

World saved.

People have no idea of the magic power of fossil fuel that we totally rely on to keep the economy from crashing. Every person in the world has 56 fossil slaves working for them. USA has 300.

700W! What a monster. That's nearly 1 horsepower.

Those legs are massive!

Apparently, guys like him can produce over 1,000 watts, but I'm supposing not over such a prolonged time period.


But extinction is entirely natural. And nothing natural can be bad for you.

Software Defined Electricity: https://www.vox.com/energy-and-envir...are-waste-3dfs

Quote:
This technology could fundamentally change our relationship to electricity
An “operating system” for power could double the efficiency of the grid.Using real-time data, 3DFS can clean up electricity

....

So 3DFS tech is gathering and analyzing enormous amounts of data in real time. What does it do with the analysis?

Using nanosecond-level data, it makes microsecond-level predictions about how to correct the signal, “noise canceling” along all of the 26 parameters it measures, yielding perfectly synchronized electricity.

It does this with its flash energy storage system (FESS). Using the real-time analytics, the FESS can inject or extract microamps of electricity from the three-phase signal, radically boosting power quality.

“We’re gathering data and making corrections before existing [systems] can even acquire their data,” Doerfler boasts.
