If their claims had any merit, it would mean that the fundamental underpinnings of modern physics (conservation theories) would somehow be wrong. This would be like finding out that the earth is actually flat, and we're moving around the sun on the back of a flying turtle.

I seem to attract free energy nuts. I have friends who will spend hours talking about free energy with only a vague idea of how it will work.

smoothbrain
I'm always hesitant to talk to random people about my job or about physics because they either want layman's explanations for really complicated subjects, or they want to talk about some crazy pseudo-science that they desperately believe in. I hate to have to either act interested in something that I'm sure is crap, but I also don't enjoy telling people their pet subject is totally bullshit.

Enjoy attracts free-energy nuts because they presume that if he'll buy into other nutty things like Creationism and Islamofacism, clearly something much more rational like free energy will make perfect sense

well it is turtles all the way down.

But, there's no America on The Disc.
...But he's not American! I think the Burser escaped!

Slapping science in the face .. yeah. Sounds about right.

I suspect he is trying to deceive me.

what is the name of this group?
smoothbrain
It's called Steorn. There's a pretty good article in the Economist from last year about him and the company.

Comeuppance
Whether he has real data or not, he is successfully getting the most rationally-minded facets of our society to act like a mob wielding pitchforks and torches.

5 for that alone.

"whether he has real data or not"

you moron

jesustweak
I imagine that otherwise rational citizens will chase you out of town for baby raping as well and you don't even have to go to the trouble of making a web site or useless shiny doohickeys.
We haven't heard anything from the Steorn boys lately; they must be out slapping science around because the bitch is showing them disrespect.

5 stars of hubris and stupidity

Comeuppance
Heyheymastequila, he has a shiny machine and he's foreign. He obviously has data. Like, at least 30 data. Maybe more.

Camonk
What? This guy isn't wearing a funny hat or quoting anime so it shouldn't be on POETV! Save POETV from people who want videos!

"successfully getting the most rationally-minded facets of our society to act like a mob wielding pitchforks and torches"

Kinda like NAMBLA.

Yeah I like how he plays a victim. All the other scientiests are picking on me. Boohoo.

I'm pretty sure I came up with a similar idea in grade 2, I became a little more a man the day I learned that permanent magnets don't actually carry a magnetic field forever.
He either recently tried acid or is simply trolling.

Any athiest knows that the universe and all the energy within came from nothing.
Camonk
In the thumbnail, I thought his fancy device looked like a dragon or something. So -1 star for no silver dragon backing him up.

Where is the explanation exactly?
"If you move magnets around, energy comes out of it or some shit."

What? I looked at some of their schematics and ideas, and basically it looks like their idea is making gears that rotate under the force of permanent magnets using different polarities.
Comeuppance
They're trying to make a self-propelling rotary generator, essentially.

It's one of those things that perpetually almost works, no matter how much effort you put into it - kind of ironic.

Pesky laws of thermodynamics and such.

StanleyPain
Well, from what I saw, the biggest hurdle is that 1.) it really doesn't output much rotation...certainly not enough to generate a charge of any greatness and 2.) the magnetic fields would interfere with each other, wouldn't they?

smoothbrain
The biggest problem is the first and second laws of thermodynamics - it's called a "law" and not a "theorem" for a reason.

5 stars of stupid and I didn't even have to watch it. Perpetual pipe dream machine go!
