Bike Riding

February 9, 2020

@ Home

On a -“brand-“ named

Stationary bike *

Under the watchful

Telescreen voice

Instructing one

To move faster

Work harder etc….



Winston Smith

Heard the following

‘Thirty to forty group!’ yapped a piercing female voice. ‘Thirty to forty group! Take your places, please. Thirties to forties!’

Winston sprang to attention in front of the telescreen, upon which the image of a youngish woman, scrawny but muscular, dressed in tunic and gym-shoes, had already appeared.

‘Arms bending and stretching!’ she rapped out. ‘Take your time by me. One, two, three, four! One, two, three, four! Come on, comrades, put a bit of life into it! One, two, three, four! One, two, three, four! …’

– “1984”

– George Orwell



Who knew so many people

Would unintentionally invite

Their Big Brother into their home

For a simple $2,300 down and

A $40.00 monthly “maintenance” fee


“Orwell’s fictional society is one of absolute subservience to the will of the Party.  The Physical Jerks are but one component of the Party’s strategy for total control.”



You have no doubt, heard the ads

* The hyperbolically

Relentlessly promoted

Exercise equipment

That at anyone’s worst guess

Has about maybe

$ 100 worth of materials

$ 200 worth of robotic manufacturing

$ 225 worth of shipping and handling

$ 75 per unit advertising expense

$ 2,300
– $ 600
= $ 1,700

Whole lotta profit

For a modern day coat rack
