TheOmni: jimmyego: TheOmni: I really do want to get the magnet in the fingertip mod.Wouldn't that be asking for trouble when handling digital media?Short answer, nope.Long answer, the magnet is really pretty weak. Because it is sitting inside your finger it doesn't actually need to be that strong. It can be damaging to older magnetic media (floppy disks, cassette tapes), but anything you would possibly use today (including hard disk drives) wouldn't be affected. The implants aren't even strong enough to harm a credit card stripe.
albuquerquehalsey: TheOmni: I really do want to get the magnet in the fingertip mod.No you don't. Get one of these. [img.alibaba.com image 500x500] Having a moving piece of metal in one of your fingers is dumb and you are dumb for considering it.
Lukeonia1: His talk of having magnets implanted in his fingertips is intriguing, to the point I might even consider it. However, it seems like it's just asking for trouble while trying to use handheld electronic devices. And let's not even talk about the horrific images that come to mind when thinking of getting an MRI with them in.
Lukeonia1: hubiestubert: "IT'S ALL A COMMIE TERRIST PLOT!"FTFY. Now get off my Nev-R-Mow® bioengineered yard turf!
