A small Irish company, Steorn, is competing for world class chutzpah by having taken out a full page ad in The Economist challenging scientists to test their claims to have invented a perpetual motion machine. Which is to scientists, pretty much crazy talk. Like prove that I don't have a goose that lays golden eggs. Basically a perpetual motion machine means free energy, or energy from nothing. This is a no go from a physics point of view, a God machine. They have sunk a lot of money into the Orbo, thats what they call their machine. Have they all kissed the Blarney Stone?
