This is a question Home Science

Have you split the atom in your kitchen? Made your own fireworks? Fired a bacon rocket through your window?
We love home science experiments - tell us about your best, preferably with instructions.

Doomed from the start.
The only real source of free energy is the Large Buttered Cat Array.
The LBCA will harness the energy of a huge number of cats with buttered toast strapped to their backs which are then thrown into the air to hover and spin -defying gravity, friction and several skeptical physicists.

You know what, The Infidel?
I do like the stuff you come up with.

Not mine of course, but I do love the idea.

I was discussing and refining this with a doctor at the weekend.
We concluded that four cats strapped back-to-back would be more efficient, but in order to build a monorail to run on such, you'd have to decide whether or not you wanted to get off the train before you knew where your station was, because of Schrodinger's theories &c.

Good point.
and because obviously only a live cat would try to land on its feet, if one of the cats in the array died then the whole thing would spin out of orbit, so you'd need one of Schroedinger's boxes to house the feline generator, to ensure that we had some kind of stability in the system.
As long as nobody looked inside to see how it worked then it would work.

This still doesn't solve the problem you have proposed though.

I just haven't thought this through properly and now my head hurts.

Now mine does too.
