The CFA was invented by the same people who invented a perpetual motion
machine using a cat and a piece of toast with jam on it.  Since toast in
this configuration always lands jam side down and cats always land on their
feet, if you duct tape a piece of toast, jam side up, on the back of a cat
and drop the combination off a ladder, it will spin in mid-air forever.
