Dude we were just talking about stuff like this in chemistry. Although it was slightly different. Some brought a question, not a smart one tbh, but she asked, "Will you ever get 110% of actual yield in a reaction?". Our teacher, was like, if you ever do I want a patent on it. Nobody got what he meant but me and this other kid. It was sad.

cant find any scientific blogs or anything, you leave a good point ghost, someone may be making miscalculations and there is no scientist who is backing this that i know of.

Mhmmm....


It could be ALMOST 100% efficient or it COULD BE 100% efficient.

But there is no way, no how, EVER going to be a machine that is 100+% efficient.

As root said. "nuff said".
