Find The Flaw
Why will this perpetual motion device, bootstrap engine or other mechanism not work?
Already being played over at my "Faux Bootstrap Engine"
The game shows a series of mechanical devices and the
sequences of how they work. Thing is, none of them DO
They're all perpetual motion machines, bootstrap engines
etc. However if well done enough, it can be hard to find
where the concept breaks down.
The player analyzes the mechanism and then finds where
problem is. They flip over the answer and score

Never say no...
So it works on grains of truth. Now the only thing left is to find those grains and grow them. [pashute, Aug 03 2014]

And it says it works. So where can you go wrong? [pashute, Aug 03 2014]

||You mean "non-obvious", shirley ?
||Lots of systems - like Maglev - have "invisible" reaction mechanisms.
||It's obvious that perpetual motion machines doesn't work because the Illuminati conspiracy
||This is a great game. Should have links to the
websites selling the stuff.
||Should also work with miracle medicine,
medical practice and invention promotion firms.
"What's wrong with this proposal"?
||Then move on to conspiracy theories "what's
with this conspiracy theory"? But then again
conspiracy theories turn out to be correct... (find
the flaw in that claim)
||//There is only one device that can work with a seemingly invisible reaction force
||I've always found sarcasm to have roughly the same effect.
||//Thing is, none of them DO work.
||That just what you want us to think....how are those backhanders from the fossil fuel lobby mounting up.
||(wonders if there isn't a better term than "lobby", like if it was of load hoteliers, wouldn't they be the hotel lobby?)
