    BMyers I just went on your "View Forum Post" and in the last 20 or so there is nothing but arguments and criticizing people.

    Congeations, you are the first person to go on my Ignore list..now to figure how to do that.

    Done.

    Yes, I see that you started some interesting threads so do give you credit for that.

    The best free energy is rolling down a hill. The earth is round so going in any direction you must be going downhill. I wonder why you don't just keep rolling.

    Gravity is only a good source of energy sometimes....it's not a great source of energy as it has limited applications, is hard to control, is uni-directional, and can't be bottled.

    That's why most renewable energy sources fall short - they don't have the flexibility of oil. Plus, oil is also a building block for the majority of improvements we've seen in the last 200 years. The anti-oil dipshits overlook that.

    Just look at all the things made of oil we'd be without:

    Many medicines
    Most surgical supplies
    Plastics
    Iphones
    Computers
    Televisions
    Most lubricants
    Airplanes
    Boats
    Automobiles
    Many musical instruments
    Many foods
    Most beauty supplies

    I wish petroleum were a renewable resource. But ever since Eva-lution created microbes and bacteria, there can be no new crude . Only methane.

    Wow, that came through and you are supposed to on Ignore it.

    Guess I will just have to Ignore you manually.

    Plants grew from sunlight. Dinos ate the plants (and other dinos). Dinos died and got buried over millions of years. Dead, buried dinos got squeezed and heated until their constituent elements turned into the sticky black goo we all know, love and fight wars over. And coal.

    Ergo, the energy stored chemically within crude oil and coal came from the sun. Possibly from the stored heat within the Earth's core as well - I'm no petrochemist.

    At one coal mine where my grandfather and later my cousin worked, they found a conch shell completely filled with coal, as if the coal was liquid at one time, perhaps oil. I can't remember if they turned it in or kept it. One time they ran into a live oil pipe, lucky they did not break it. The guy on top must have been asleep.

    Likely we won't get mushed over and turned to oil. More likely to get burned up in a firefight war. Yes a lot of smoke, so getting mushed under would be much better for the environment. Someone should start a petition to sign..how we choose to end it.

    I always like to read about Tesla. He thought way outside the box. I would have liked to work as his machinist. I have not kept count of how many people approached me wanting me to build a magnetic engine. I always said yes. One dollar a minute + material, you draw the prints, I make the parts. I get paid COD whether the thing works or not. No design work on my part except minor changes. Send me a PO and the prints and I'll start right away. No takers. I have built some pretty cool machinery using the time and materials pricing policy though. The OP's gizzmo looked expensive to build and did have some low friction ideas that might work in the right applications. My.02 spaeth

    Plants USED sunlight to grow, but they didn't (and still don't) grow out of sunlight. Let's say sunlight was one of the ingredients, but by no means the only ingredient. It's a really big leap to assert that oil comes from sunlight.
