Now for a perpetual motion machine that actually works.....
We all know that if you drop a piece of buttered toast that it will always land buttered side down. It's one of those annoying facts of physics that we live with, day-to-day.
Now, we also know that a cat - when dropped - will always land on it's feet.
All we have to do is attach a piece of buttered toast to the back of the cat with the buttered side facing up.
Now we simply drop the cat and watch the wonder of nature as the cats natural instinct to land on its feet is counteracted by the toasts natural tendency to land buttered side down.....We are ultimately left with a feline hovering above the ground in a permanent state of rotation.

I would like to see Perpetual motion machine, but that is impossible. Motion is energy, and energy doesn't spawn from nothingness. All the Perpetual motion machines I have seen stop at some point.
If they work, our physics are wrong and science is failure
