Supermagnets: Keep Away From Children!

[Media: Website]

I love the warning description that comes with these Supermagnets. Although they sound extremely dangerous for anyone around them, they would also wreck any electronics around your house. I want one just to see what happens, and at the same time I would never want to come anywhere close to they.
If you really need unbelievably powerful magnets, here they are.
Uses include magnetic steering of nuclear particles in homemade accelerators, levitation devices, magnetic beam amplifiers, scrap iron separators, etc.

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 of these magnets close together can create an almost unbelievable magnetic field that can be very dangerous. Of all the unique items we offer for sale, we consider these two items the most dangerous of all. Our normal packing & shipping personnel refuse to package these magnets - our engineers have to do it. This is no joke and we cannot stress it strongly enough - that you must be extremely careful - and know what you're doing with these magnets. Take Note: Two of the 3" x 1" disc magnets can very easily break your arm if they get out of control.

Can you imagine, getting your arm broken by one of these things? Now that would be a story! This magnet costs $100.00. There is also a lot of other cool magnets from the super tiny to the oddly shaped.
