image for Scientist Finds Perpetual Motion Machine "Too Annoying"
The damned thing kept me awake, running all the time.

A Nevada inventor and physicist had to get rid of his perpetual motion machine, which he found "really irritating." He said: "The damned thing kept me awake, running all the time, I couldn't stop it. I mean, I like science, but I've got a life too!"

Having worked on the machine for at least seven years, the inventor said he really didn't consider the efforts wasted, as he was able to attend a conference in Las Vegas to present a paper about his work. "Hey, I got a trip to Vegas, and I won $300 in the slots too."

When asked what he did with the machine, he said: "I just put it outside for the monthly bulk pick up. I saw some kids playing with it earlier. Let the county worry about it now!"

He has now scrapped his plans for research on cold fusion, as he wants to "catch some rays" before it gets too far into winter.
