Super idea, attach the "merry-go-round" to a generator and develop DC current to charge the gel batteries in the basement, most of your energy for night-time reading would be supplied with a 0% carbon footprint!!!

    A 0% carbon footprint? Are you suggesting to not feed the child? ;-)

    Anytime a human (or animal) performs labour, he/she/it uses muscles. And just like a combustion engine, muscles need to burn a fuel to get their energy. The fuel comes from reducing sugars, carbohydrates and fats; producing CO2. And in the digestive system, CH4 (methane) is produced.

      Oops! Sorry, must feed the child, but you get 'free' energy because you have to feed them anyway!!!

      Girlfriends push faster, but can whine and demand jewelery and other high-cost items, thereby raising the cost of the energy.
