Your diagram has a diesel engine in it by the way. The result is a device designed to torture the cat by rotating it at a few thousand RPM with a piece of buttered toast strapped to it.

Also it was discovered by NASA that the cat's ability to always land on its feet also applies in a microgravity environment. A cat permitted to float freely in the microgravity environment would always rotate midair such that its feet would contact first regardless of which direction it was moving. The only exception was if the cat was thrown towards a surface- in which case the cat would fail to rotate sufficiently just as what happens if you throw a cat on earth.

Unfortunately the butter would wither away gradually due to hawking radiation. Therefore the energy output is not infinite in this design.

Yeah, that's the only objection that comes to mind.

Well... technically yes, and the cat would eventually die also, but... Any energy production system based on perpetual motion is not really expected to ALWAYS stay in motion, but simply that the energy production be at or over unity.  There would be periods of shutdown for cleaning, repair, lubrication, etc.  Replenishing the butter or replacing the cat would be matters of simple maintenance.

Right. Replacing a cat would be a matter of simple maintenance. No worse than giving a cat a pill, I suppose.

>_<

I meant in the context of using said cat for infinite energy, which is absurd, therefore making my comment a meta-absurdity or something.  IRL I love cats and would never "simply replace" one.  All the cats I have known and taken responsibility for have held important places in my life, and I remember each one fondly.  C'mon, did you really get the idea that I only think of cats as simple replaceable utilities in fantastical free-energy-production schemes?  
I seriously hope not... ohmy

Use strays as the spare parts source instead of house pets.

Doesn't make it any more humane, but at least there would be plenty of them available.

However, that means it is not a perpetual motion after all. It would consume cats bread and butter as fuel, as all three organic components would require regular replacement.

In that case it would be a per-pet-ual motion machine.  Only so many revolutions per pet.  Also it always pays to know which side your bread is buttered on.  smiley
Then again a butter substitute may increase margarinal efficiency.

At first, I wondered why this was its own thread instead of in silly humor.  Now... I wonder at why it's still getting debated?  huh  tellme Grin

One could say the thread is cat-ass-trophic.  Replete with half-baked puns.  smiley

But it would still produce energy over unity which means it would produce more power than was put in.  Take the total caloric value of your average house cat + slice of buttered bread, and as long as the energy output was more, it still counts as perpetual motion.

In that case it would be a per-pet-ual motion machine.
Face.
Palm.

I always thought that a better solution than the cat/toast rotor would be three cats strapped back-to-back in a star configuration.

I guess you could call it the three polecat configuration.

Apparently, new (and secret) work is being done on this in Somalia. Capital is available there for what is considered a moggied issue.

Spare parts are readily available.  Just consult the cat-a-log.  smiley

So, to get things going, just give your cat a list.
