|Anyone notice how close that name is to someone near and dear to our hearts, he who must not be named. Just substitute the last name first letter with an "O". Yeah I guess the small "o" need to be an "a" also.|

|You take an all-metal gun and that magnet might rip it right out of your pants.
True incident: a local cop went to a hospital not far from here on some sort of business; and he walked into the room where an MRI machine was running. The MRI uses a stupendously powerful magnet, and you can't have any metal objects within a certain distance of it. No one checked the cop or warned him, and when he walked into the room, the field yanked his gun out of its holster from 10-15 feet away, and slammed it, muzzle first, into the wall of the gigantic magnet. The gun was moving so fast the inertial firing pin was able to set off the primer of the round in the chamber! No damage to the machine other than some chipped paint, and nobody hurt; but they had to turn the MRI off to unstick the gun. Had he been using a safety strap it would probably have yanked the cop across the room, too, and held him stuck fast to the machine.

|Okay, I gotta confess. I'd have paid to see that just so that I could rag the cop about it for the rest of his career.|

|(no avatar)||I used to work in an area hospital when they were upgrading their MRI suite. They had to hire a contractor to reinforce the floor that contained the original magnet to support the new one. Plus all the cabling (phone, network, etc.) had to be mega-shielded. Took them 2+ weeks just to finish the floor support, and another two weeks to finish the surrounding infrastructure and cable work. Here's a shot of one magnet - now imagine a facility with more than just one of these . . .

|WOW! Better not forget to unload the tool-belt! Ya wouldn't want a hand full of nails or a hammer to jump out! -- Do you happen to know how heavy that is??|

|(no avatar)||No, I used to know what the hospital's new magnet weighed but forgot. And remember, its an electro-magnetic "magnet", so you have to "turn-it-on" first. A wikipedia article on MRI's reports:
- A permanent magnet that is powerful enough to be used in an MRI will be extremely large and bulky; they can weigh over 100 tonnes.
- As a result of the very high strength of the magnetic field needed to produce scans (frequently up to 60,000 times the earth's own magnetic field effects), there are several incidental safety issues addressed in MRI facilities. Missile-effect accidents, where ferromagnetic objects are attracted to the center of the magnet, have resulted in injury and death.
So, a little more than what holds your kid's report card to the fridge . . . . .

|If there isn't a comic book character named "Magnetman", there oughta be.
I have a couple of guns safes which attract guns and suck money out of my wallet. Does that count?

|I think I'd give that guy a wide berth lest I got between him and a hammer. BTW, brainaxe - What are you doing frequenting a web site called "Alldumb.com"?|
