ISTANBUL, TURKEY - MARCH 23: The Netflix App logo is seen on a television screen on March 23, 2018 in Istanbul, Turkey. The Government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan passed a new law on March 22 extending the reach of the country's radio and TV censor to the internet. The new law will allow RTUK, the states media watchdog, to monitor online broadcasts and block content of social media sites and streaming services including Netflix and YouTube. Turkey already bans many websites including Wikipedia, which has been blocked for more than a year. The move came a day after private media company Dogan Media Company announced it would sell to pro-government conglomerate Demiroren Holding AS. The Dogan news group was the only remaining news outlet not to be under government control, the sale, which includes assets in CNN Turk and Hurriyet Newspaper completes the governments control of the Turkish media.

An aerospace engineer came up with an idea to entertain himself while losing weight.
He rigged his TV to his exercise bike. This made it so that he could only watch tv if he was working out and maintaining a certain speed.
As part of his creation, the bike would beep at him if he started slowing down, like a warning and then the TV would completely shut off if he went even slower.
And get this, it only took him 2 days and $30 in parts to create.
