Southern Country Boy might be about to announce new source of energy
February 20, 2008
My name is William E. Windham. I am a 74 year old disabled Vet. .
Since I was a very young man I have had the theory in my head on how to build a Self Powered Machine. That's right, A perpetual motion machine that will not only power itself but would generate enough energy to power other meaningful equipment as well.
What I need is someone to produce for me round balls, these Balls need to be Rubber Coated. Need to be twenty two inches (22) in diameter, perfectly round, and need to weigh 20 pounds each. Therefore the core would need to be made of a light weight shock absorbing material. Preferably they need to be made entirely of non-metallic material.
If this machine works on a large scale, as I have experimented on a small scale it will save billions of dollars in energy cost right away.
Any help or direction you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

When I was a child someone introduced me to the "pipes" game. You have 3 houses and 3 tanks (say for water, heating oil, and waste) and your job is to draw a pipe from each tank to each house without them crossing.
I loved the game and always thought I'd somehow solve it. Then I learned that it was mathmatically impossible and I didn't have to keep inventing different patterns because none could work.
I moved on and saw all the perpetual motion machines in the Ripley's museum in NYC and they were extremely convincing. It seemed that the one with the air chambers on a cylinder that goes partially into a tank of water was utterly foolproof, those air chambers are going to try to float, and when they do they are going to turn the wheel. Period.
Then I took thermodynamics and learned why no perpetual motion machine will ever work no matter how you construct it. Please try to lay hold of a thermodynamics book and study the concept of perpetual motion and why it doesn't work no matter what the device looks like. Or, good luck!
