When I was 10 years old, I had already gained the reputation of inventor. My mother’s boyfriend at the time was a pretty smart guy. He’s the one that told me I could be wasting a lot of time on perpetual motion machines. I guess I was still young enough to heed good advice. I moved on to the next machine.
