Another day, Another Kickstarter scam
« on: January 24, 2016, 09:18:16 pm »
After browsing through Kickstarter, I came upon this glittering jewel:

Lo!

Behold the Gravity Engine!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1673957641/gravity-engine?ref=category

As you can see, it generates electricity by the infinite and almighty power of gullibility. You dont need a background in intelligence to figure this one out, as you will see.

Some fun filled quotes:

"Consider: all mater is in a state of constant and perpetual motion; additionally a multiverse (quantum universes) may indicate exceptions to entropy."
 Damnit! He used the words 'quantum' and 'multiverse' in the same sentence in a kickstarter campaign. Now ive got to go and manually reset all my BS detectors. Thanks alot Nicholas Calvano. Thanks alot.

"In my work on the MALC ((Magnetically Attracted Liquid Circulator) invention) (which (converts magnetism into electricity))"  :clap:
It does? really?

"... and is known as Archimedes Principal."
Ohhh, so thats what its called. Well blow me down...

Here's the money shot:
"My goal is to produce the world’s first perpetual motion machine" 
Ill give him just one compliment. At least he doesnt try to hide it.

"As for those who would say this machine violates the second law of thermodynamics, I say to you: gravity energy is in the system;...."
I say to you: get an education goddamnit!

"Some people might think it is crazy to try to shake the worlds understanding of physics and thermodynamics."
Some might say it is YOU who is crazy. Or a scammer preying on the gullibility of the ignorant.

Either way, he deserves to be banned from crowdfunding from here into perpetuity.

Nobody's taking his bait though, this is just a prime example of ignorance.
Just started a blog at http://brimmingideas.blogspot.com/ . Not much in it as of now but more is sure to come :)

Especially considering that he doesn't seem to stop at the first unsuccessful attempt:

Yeah I was looking at that earlier, a whole $113 from his one and only successful campaign. Early present from grandma ?
