I wish I had the space in my apartment for a recumbent bike. I suppose I'm lucky my gym has televisions, but it still requires effort to get there after work, and then home. If I had a machine at home, I could really increase my frequency.

And our industry deprives us of the force and agility that necessarily obliges him to acquire. If he had had an axe, would his wrists break such strong branches? If he had had a sling, would he throw a stone with so much force? If he had had a horse, would he run so fast? Give a civilized man time to gather all his machines around him, and undoubtedly he will easily overcome a savage man. But if you want to see an even more unequal fight, pit them against each other naked and disarmed, and you will soon realize the advantage of constantly having all of one’s forces at one’s disposal, of always being ready for any event, and of always carrying one’s entire self, as it were, with one.

Would one of those spring things help?
I await your wisdom. And after reading Savannah's post, I'm canceling all engagements this evening...
Holy macaroni! I've put on 20 pounds since September! Full alarm!!!!
