Scarily powerful magnets September 4, 2006

Who would have thought magnets could be so scary? have a look at the magnets on offer on this page – the supermagnets come with some very stark warnings:


Beware – you must think ahead when moving these magnets.
If carrying one into another room, carefully plan the route you will be taking. Computers & monitors will be affected in an entire room. Loose metallic objects and other magnets may become airborne and fly considerable distances – and at great speed – to attach themselves to this magnet. If you get caught in between the two, you can get injured.

Two Super magnets can very easily get out of control and break fingers and even your arm if opposing poles fly at each other.  If working with multiple Supermagnets, always handle one magnet at a time, secure it, then proceed to the next magnet.

Reading these kind of messages makes me really want some of these magnets.
