# Dangerous Magnets

## Recommended Posts

I know how dangerous these magnets can be. But you have to see this for yourself. The comments below the video were entertaining too.

wow. I never thought, that magnets can be that dangerous.

So glad this was staged - I didn't watch it the first time around worried what I might see!

Strong magnets can definitely crush something or mess you up if you aren't careful. Ouch.

When I bought mine off eBay, it came with a warning that the magnet is strong enough to break bones in your hand if you get careless.

But my main reason for posting the video was because of the obviously hilarious squished hand. I just know some people could be fooled into thinking what they are seeing is real. Gotcha!

LOL! I saw the thumbnail of the video and thought "ehhhh I'm not sure I want to see this". The bit at the end was hilarious once I actually nutted up and watched

What did you need a magnet for? One of your experiments?

Yes, I was trying to figure out a strange phenomena that I dubbed sticky space. Later on I figured it out and discovered the Lorentz force actually covers this phenomena. Although the math for the Lorentz force has been butchered from from Lorentz's original equation. Lorentz had a term for centrifugal force in his equation. That was later removed because no one could figure out why Lorentz put the term in the equation.

Here are some videos I made documenting some of my experiments.

What is the disc thing in your first video? It's not apparent what it is...

Is the disc in your second video another magnet, or just a piece of metal?

In the first video I made a pancake coil and had the output of that coil hooked up to my multimeter. The magnet induces current in the coil which will either repel or attract to the magnet, depending on whether I am pulling or pushing. This was after I had figured out how the magnetic field interacts with a conductor.

In the second video, the metal disc is magnesium. Someone had suggested that the magnet only repels conductors. So I made a video showing that it can attract a conductor by pulling the magnet away. Magnesium appears to be the best metal to use, as it is more readily attracted to the magnetic field compared to other conductors. Seems UFO crash debris also has a high abundance of this metal too.

I wonder if the the Biefeld–Brown effect with a stack of super capacitors could be used to make a crushing force? The energy required would be really high.
