A perpetual motion machine doesn't have to "last" forever, only ( who made up these silly rules - Oh yeah..

Care to show us a practical perpetual motion machine?
Wow the ability to miss the obvious never ceases to amaze me. We live on one genius...
Leonardo decided against investigating perpetual motion any further after he wrote (in mirror writing) beside the designs – “for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction” (the machines will not work). That quote is also Isaac Newtons Third Law of Motion, 150 years before Newton was born!!!
Flight became a practical experience, with the Wright brothers and Balloons, and other contraptions. In no way has a "perpetual motion machine" ever become practical.

I agree.And even if someone was able to somehow build a true perpetual motion machine,that person would soon thereafter meet with a mysteriuos,untimely death,and all their reseach would vanish.

We have never thought flight was impossible, because other species can fly, it was just a matter of how we can achieve it, and the Wright brothers figured it out. I don't think you quite understand these laws, perpetual motion is clearly impossible, it cannot exist. Also, If you are insulted by phrases like "smart ass" then you need to get a grip, quite right you can be a smart ass all you want, but it doesn't make you right.
Perpetual motion is perpetual motion, I don't know what you mean by a "practical sense", if it's not literally perpetual motion, then it isn't perpetual motion.
As the above poster pointed out, the first flight was 109 years ago, in 1903.edit on 10-9-2012 by SpearMint because: (no reason given)
The earth has been in perpetual rotation for million of years. That proves it is possible. Just because it has not been figured out how to do it by man (that we know of) yet does not make it impossible.
I laugh hard at the cultists who think they have it all figured out and that they understand the math and there couldn't possibly be any more to it. The legacy of Science is that generation upon generation has smashed many of their precious cultist beliefs that something was impossible.
The fact that you even try to deny that the Earth planets and solar system are perpetual motion machines in the face of daily demonstration that they are speaks volumes of your blind cultist religious scientific dogma... Go ahead keep embarrassing yourself as I am sure you will, i need not continue responding to such ignorance.
