We need nanotoast and a micro butter spreader. This will lead to the need for nanoeggs and nanobacon.

How is that related to perpetual motion?

If you drop toast, it always lands with the butter side down. If you drop a cat, it always lands on its feet. So if you strap a slice of buttered toast to a cat's back and drop it, what happens?

Easy: the cat freaks out from having something foreign attached to it and lands on its side.
