NOTE: I do not know if this would be practical, or possible. Or practically possible.
Suppose there’s a good movie or TV show coming on. You could pedal on a pedal-power-genarator, and connect it to a TV. Watch the show along with some other people. The reason to try to see it with other people is because that way you can take turns pedaling. Switch during the ads or something. That way, when you stop pedaling and the TV turns off, you won’t miss the story.
