    ya, i don't expect more energy that is put in. i know that's impossible. also, there's always going to be some amount of friction from a rotating device, so i know it won't run forever. i could just use a motor, but i really enjoy building things myself. i seem to understand how something works alot better if i build it rather than buy it.
