I am so gonna fucking try that.

but first; will the battery overload if i leave it on?
Bootymarch
Couldn't there be, theoretically, a perpetual motion device just using magnets? Do magnets lose their charge after awhile?

Whoever developed it would get assassinated by oil tycoon-hired hitmen, anyway
jangbones
fuckin magnets...nevermind

Bootymarch
I knew it

jyrque
Truly, magnets are one of the biggest mysteries on our planet Earth. Where did they come from? How do they work?

BorrowedSolution
Fuck perpetual motion, I'd settle for a surplus output. Why do we need it to run forever? I'm not going to be alive forever, are you?

5 stars because it's a cute little motor.

Cyberblah
eh, I'll be the dork who takes you seriously. After all, I thought like you when I was eight.

No, magnets can't make a perpetual motion machine. It takes at least as much energy to pull magnets apart as they release by pulling together. The same goes in reverse for repulsion. There's no clever arrangement of magnets that can get around that.

BorrowedSolution
But what if I want it REALLY, REALLY bad??? Did you ever think about that????

Bootymarch
"I thought like you when I was eight."

Go fuck yourself. Straight from my heart, a piercing arrow through the web into your fucking face, you asshole

TheQuakeSoldier
Right back at you asshole. Next time do some critical thinking before you ask a dumb question. If perpetual motion were possible, with magnets or what the fuck ever, then scientists would've fucking done something with it by now.

MurgatroidMendelbaum
Bootymarch is NINE AND A HALF, asshole.

Raggamuffin
He asked a sincere question in order to expand his knowledge. Anyone who responds to that by being derisive and condescending is a complete asshole. He's not the sick bison for you to jump on to make yourself feel smart, he's a human being asking a question. You should both feel ashamed of yourselves for acting the way you have.

Also, "if it was a good idea then scientists would have done it by now!" is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

5 stars for the little motor.

TheQuakeSoldier
YEAH! Why were scientists wasting their time with things like the Large Hardon Collider when they could've been investigating perpetual motion with magnets? Give Bootymarch a fucking nobel prize right here and now.

Raggamuffin
Do you even know what you're talking about anymore?

Robin Kestrel
^ for Raggamuffin.

Cyberblah
Defensive much, Bootymarch? I actually answered your question, unlike anyone else. Did you actually want to know, or did you want to feel smart?

jangbones
fuckin social interaction...nevermind

Hooker
"If perpetual motion were possible, with magnets or what the fuck ever, then scientists would've fucking done something with it by now."

That statement does not demonstrate critical thinking in the slightest.

This thread is an example of the uncomfortable possibility that the hatred of knowledge is usually inspired by those who have it.

Cyberblah
Eh, actually I didn't think much of the eight year old thing because it's literally true -- I'm so nerdy that at that age I was drawing crappy pictures of levitating cars with a magnet on the back at just the right place to push it forward...

The actually dickery was trying to crush someone else's idea just as mine was crushed in science class.

Cyberblah
(also I thought there was at least a 50% chance I was feeding a troll)

Oscar Wildcat
I'm glad you guys got permanent magnetism figured out. I got stuck trying to understand in physical terms what the exchange force is and why it acts between unpaired electrons in ferromagnetic materials. Can anyone straighten me out on this?

I TOO HAVE STRONG OPINIONS ABOUT MAGNETS ON THE INTERNET

Syd Midnight
I think of it as more of an entrance exam. If you don't like finding out how stupid and ignorant you are, you're going to wind up choosing pseudoscience anyways. The hidden truths that THEY don't want you to know etc.

fatatty
Guys did you ever stop to think that maybe he had a traumatic experience with magnets? Everyone needs to just calm down.

EvilHomer
Can we submit PoeTV comment threads to PoeTV? I will five star this whole thing.

glendower
Fuck magnets man. Tell 'em to fuck off.
Jet Bin Fever
This video really pisses me off!
Bisekrankas
Yes, fuck magnets, thinking theyre better than me.

Cute motor, 5 stars

Is the battery being punished, is it going to be sent into the Phantom Zone?
