Perpetual Motion Machine - Never Stops !

Jonathan Atwater of the small town Coolidge, Kansas successfully filed with the US Patent Office for his perpetual motion machine, an elusive invention of main stream scientists.

This was the 3rd patent this year for a perpetual motion machine, all of which have been offered to small time inventors who, despite their successes, have failed to profit in any method from their inventions.

Mr. Atwater feels that this is due to fear from the business oligarchies on having their monopolies eroded, and not due to the fact that his theories require an advanced mathematics that only he and his 5 year old son understand.

His patent is being contested by his neighboring sheep farmer Ray Johnston, who offered as evidence that the design was his brain child the observation that the machine works faster, for some unknown reason, in times of storm or wind.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
