Perpetual motion..(expansion of the universe)

Isn't that supposed to be forever movement?
So when the person dies does it stop?

pacemaker:
In this case, maybe. A conventional pacemaker has to be turned off. Really weird to see someone who has passed, but pulse and BP are still normal. I am sure there is an internal battery with some reserve.

I remember how much energy my sister's kids always had in the half-hour following a meal. I guess it was the sudden boost in blood sugar levels.

I think it is the increased metabolic rate due to the increased blood flow required for digestion.

I had a dog in college that was over a year old before he stopped eating his own poop. I wanted to bring him to the US Patent office to regester him as a Perpetual Motion Machine.

The vet said "try another brand of dog food". I remembered asking him "how bad does that dog food I already have have to taste that he prefers eating his own poop?"

Man that was one screwed up pooch....
