Peloton charges a prohibitively expensive $US2245 for its bicycles and $US4295 for its treadmills along with a monthly subscription fee of $39 to connect with fellow riders/runners across the globe in live, streamed workout classes

QUOTE
one father’s viral email response to his daughter’s request for a Peloton stationary bicycle noted: “It is a ridiculous amount of money for such a basic concept as riding a stationary bike. You can ride a bike you own for as long as you want and cut the inevitable boredom factor by listening to podcasts or watching TV or clips of waves on sand”. He added: “I would implore you not to waste precious after-tax income on this latest attempt to encourage social strivers to show that they live at a more rarefied level than the proletariat.”

Indoor farming may be taking root
May 17th 2014
excerpt
QUOTE
Moving plants indoors allows them to be coddled in other ways, too.
Water can be recycled continuously, and sensors can detect which nutrients
are missing and provide them in small, accurate bursts.

I hope I manage to hold on long enough to see that. Circa 1974 - 2030, it's been a long time between drinks.
