OK, so this was in a game and doesn’t really count.

“It’s a bit rubbish to have a captain with Sailor 0.”
“We’re pre Pepys so it’s historically appropriate.”
“So now he just listens to his competent advisor?”
“No, that’s the reform Pepys will bring in, making sure he has a competent advisor.”

Investigating a Bag of Holding: “The weight stays the same. I think that means it’s also a Bag of Infinite Energy, but let’s not worry about that.”

“Presumably there was a product safety leaflet that came with it, but that’s long since been lost.”

Yes, that works. Take bag weight W, two loads of weight L (more than W but less than the bag’s capacity), and a vertical rope loop with a pulley at each end.

Load 1 is at the top, load 2 at the bottom, bag at the bottom attached to the rope.
Insert load 2 into bag.
Attach load 1 to top of rope.
Allow rope to run (load 1 falling is heavier than bag rising). Turning of pulley generates power.
Remove load 2 from bag (now at top) and detach load 1 from rope.
Allow rope to run (bag falling is heavier than no load). Turning of pulley generates power.
Repeat.

I do think that applying real world physics to a system which can literally generate food out of nothing and allow someone’s wish to change the rules of reality might be opening an infinite can of worms that even Schrodinger would balk at. See also Peasant Railgun.

Peasent Rail sounds like how the aristocracy play train games.

(After I’d applied said rule to an IR pyrometer, and to a full offline map of the UK on the phone.)
