They don't look like the magnets I'm used to seeing in the traditional sense, they look more like those bucky ball things that got banned for this reason.

On the plus side you can now stick him to the fridge.

I am disappointed at all the negativity in this thread.

Shut up, it is obvious that you are just trying to polarize people!

Those are NOT fridge magnets. Fridge magnets aren't spherical. Wrong picture methinks

If swallowing 42 magnets was the answer, what was the question?
 
2013-02-15 07:25:43 AM  
That's an operationing for him.
 
2013-02-15 07:25:55 AM  
Well, now he knows the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

WIN!

Only an oversized baby can tolerate such an appetite. That is why I thought it was the adult who lived his life as a baby that did this.

Is that possible due to him having his own magnetic field or his own gravity well?

and this is why we don't have bucky balls anymore >=/

Is he now eligible to enroll in a magnet school?

C'mon now, lets stay positive.

In the toddlers defense magnets are delicious

Perhaps he'll die

His sense of direction is amazing.
 
2013-02-15 08:16:11 AM  
I'm going to be serious and say that I'm glad they caught this quckly.  If your kid (or dog) swallow two magnets they can end up pulled together from different parts of the intestine after which they stay stuck rubbing and abraiding the intestinal wall and eventually wear through at which point you are dumping food an bacteria from the small intestine into the abdomen at which point you fairly rapidly and very painfully.

That's more than four tens.

Doesn't matter, the answer is always 42.

84 lines about 42 magnets.

Wow, this thread went south fast.

kertus: Those are NOT fridge magnets. Fridge magnets aren't spherical. Wrong picture methinks


They look too big to be those bucky ball things, and they do seem to be round cylindars not spherical, there are some that are turned sideways stuck to round ones.   I guess the 'luck' of most of them being in profile view seems to be due to their magnetism?

However, the progression along the bowels seems to belie the 'being left alone for just a few minutes' part of the story.
 
2013-02-15 08:57:36 AM  
I'm repulsed by the bad puns in this thread.  I guess I'm just the polar opposite of you farkers.

Who keeps recipes, photos, kid's drawings, notes, etc. 18" off the ground on a refrigerator? Was this a house full of dwarfs?
 
2013-02-15 09:05:26 AM  
Well, it's good to know that we ban cool things just because one idiot kid does something stupid with th... oh wait.
 
2013-02-15 09:11:39 AM  
if he was rushed to have an x-ray then why are some of the "items" in the large intestine and appears to be in his rectum? that would take almost a day
also looks to be less than 30 peices
does a kid have a stomach from side to side?
i vote fake or wrong x-ray

Neither, fat kids are always just sort of sticky.
 
2013-02-15 09:50:37 AM  
Yeah, blame the magnets.

In my day, stupid kids drank bleach. You don't see the government banning bleach, do you?

I don't have kids, so I don't see why I shouldn't be allowed to buy as many buckyballs as I want.

The obvious solution is to ban all high magnet capacity refrigerators. Why the fark does anyone NEED 42 magnets on their fridge?
