Very Short Mondays: Perpetual Motion

When news broke that Dr Jakob Henriksson had perfected his perpetual motion machine, none was more pleased than the man himself.  Carefully selecting links to those he considered the best reports, he composed a tweet to accompany them:
'This story is going to run and run.'
Within an hour he had 12,637 retweets.

He sat through all of dinner with a huge satisfied grin on his face.  Mrs Henriksson rolled her eyes at him.

"You know," she said, "when I married you I thought you were a scientist.  A man of higher purpose.  All that effort.  What a waste."

"Not a waste, no.  I'm sure someone will find some actual use for the thing.  I'm just pleased to have beaten Georg's record."

"He'll never cough up the hundred euros, you know."

"I know.  But it's not about the money.  I just like to win, is all."
