Like bikes? Enjoy keeping fit? Hate paying for electricity? Well, here you go. Just what you were looking for:
At least you can feel knackered with the lights on
Elsewhere, this bloke called Gary is making animal sculptures out of cutlery. Gorillas, bears, peacocks. Loads of stuff.
A Silverware-back Gorilla and family
With new species discovered every week (maybe even every day, I haven't checked), the world's cutlery deposits will run dry long before Gary can even start on Bigfoot (either monster truck or ape thing).

I reckon Formula One is easily one of the most boring sports there is. Now that the electric circuit (HA!) is opening up, Formula E has at least some curiosity to it.
What if there were Formula E cars that drove themselves though?
Daniel Simon, the designer of RoboCar and vehicles from Oblivion and Tron: Legacy, the car will drive itself in a series of 'shows' rather than races (races featuring human drivers with 'robots' kept strictly to the shows). I for one hope that a RoboCar goes rogue and a rampant AI wreaks havoc in a human race. Can't wait for Michael Bay to make that film.
