    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I want magnetic superpowers, dammit!

    I talked to my friend who owns a tattoo shop this evening. He can't implant tiny magnets into my fingertips, thereby granting me the ability to sense the presence of magnetic fields and perform amazing feats like telling if an electrical wire is live just by putting my hand near it, and sensing if a computer is about to crash by feeling the hard drive spin up.

    Apparently, that kind of procedure is illegal.

    I guess I'll have to continue my superpowerless existence... For now.

    If you had that you wouldn't be sensing anything near my computer.

    You'd need some damn powerful magnets to "sense" anything. And if they were that powerful, they'd stick to a pipe or something and you'd have to rip your skin off just to free your fingers.

    It takes a damn powerful magnet to actually do anything to a hard drive. I've tested it.

    though basically any magnet can be used to **** with the color on a TV screen.

    this is good, because small black magnets blend into the TV box very well, your friends, family or teachers will never find them.

    One of the clients for the computer company I work for, had her laptop sitting on top of an alternator testing machine for a long time. It took a huge 8 liter diesel truck's alternator (something big like that, I don't remember so I'll just throw in the number closes to my middle finger) pretty much over-surging (enough to burn the copper and melt half the shell) to create enough of a magnetic disturbance to mess around with the data on the laptop. Most Hard-drives are pretty secure over most standard non-commerical magnets these days. Unless it's a Maxtor. Maxtor's suck.
