The museum of unworkable devices... Gravity -- it's not just a good idea, it's the law. Perpetual motion, and other wonderful things.

Wasn't this in a Vonnegut novel once? I can't remember which one...its a little early. Something about a univeristy teacher and foreign countries taking over 'maintenance' services of the U.S. From what I remember these devices where an example of the overconfidence of man....trying to overcome the laws of the real (physical) world

I love the smell of wingnuttery in the morning! Great site, goes well with the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices.

Remember, the Recto Rotor is not available in any store!
