Yes these are facts, but wouldn't it be smarter to see to it that it don't run out of water? Water is cheep here California. I like the things covered in the group description, especially about trying to come up with something that might be a little more efficient that old Dippy.

Yes, the dippy bird uses heat from the atmosphere, but that's not all
it does. If it did, it would violate the second law of thermodynamics.
The bird does something else that keeps it from violating the second
law: it evaporates water. When the water runs out, the bird stops even
though there's plenty of heat left in the atmosphere.
