    Free energy has been here all along ,But there are very powerfull forces that want to supress the technology,Get the blueprints for a real Magnet motor free enegy machine at LT-MAGNET-MOTORdotCOM ,Join the energy revolution!

    I need a thing like that on my toilet; how awesome would it be to not wipe your own ass
