Le Blog du Frog

by ryan

Today in training we learned a little about magnets. Apparently they were found by a little boy named Magnus in a country called Magnesia (hmm?). We used regular magnets to tell north and south (which was the direction that all of our magnets pointed) (except Rose’s). Then Paul showed us something that was pretty freaky. Apparently everything has a magnetic attraction or repulsion. Paul D. used a super-magnet to move around a grape hanging from the ceiling. He told us to check out a video of a super-duper-high powered-eletro-magnet that can levitate a frog. This force is called diamagnetism and can be found in basically all matter, if I understand correctly. The human version should be coming to Las Vegas sometime in the near future. Sounds like fun!
