First Law of Thermodynamics vs. Perpetuum Mobile

So there’s this guy who took photographs of young Michael Jackson and is now selling them to get the money to test the perpetuum mobile contraption he claims to have invented. That’s Latin for perpetual motion and the Law of Conservation of Energy and the First Law of Thermodynamics make the existence of such a machine in our Newtonian physics universe impossible. People have been claiming to have had invented those perpetual motion machines for a long time but the the only perpetual thing about them is the perpetual stream of uneducated idiots with God complex that claim they can create energy out of nothing.
