Cooking takes a lot of energy, but that's kind of easy to forget. What's not easy to forget is what happens when this Olympic cyclist tries to toast a slice of bread using power generated only from his peddling in what I think is a video for energy conservation.
How long can he run a 700-watt toaster? And will be bread end up actually crunching? Or will it just be kind of warm. Check it out in the video after the jump.
I don't know if I'm more shocked by the energy requirement or the size of his legs.
