Thoughts on the generation of energy

K2 and I were out for recess with the short folks.  The rain had returned and we were cooped up under one of the covered areas.  Nearly 50 small bodies running helter skelter, pell mell, non-stop.  How they keep from crashing into each other every 5 minutes is one of the great mysteries of recess.

While watching all of this action, I had a thought:  forget solar, forget wind turbines, let's find a way to harness the constant motion of these little people to heat and light our homes!  We could solve this problem and more!  Heck, we might even see the end of childhood obesity!
