Now if we can take it a step further. We can have a self perpetuating computer industry, & we can now retire. Or maybe not!

Since the internet is now using as much energy as the airline industry, we can now all get on bikes to peddle energy back into the grid, so that the computers can get more powerfull & everything can get more automated. & we can peddle even harder till we drop.

I always figured weight rooms were a huge waste of potential electric energy.

Then again... if we all work out daily on machines so our network gets better and better, and the machines get involved in designing new hardware and software...

We'll build ourselves intoThe Matrix!
