My sister took her kids to Fermilab for the open house today. That's a great summer activity.

Magnetism - you can't explain that.

FTFA: ...during its slow, delicate 3,200-mile journey from New York to suburban Chicago. The land-and-sea trip culminated when scientists...

WTF? Did they go through San Diego on the way?  Where is there "sea" between NY and Chicago?  Reporter is a crackhead.

Really, from Long Island to Chicago via the ocean and the Mississippi? I guess the Erie Canal is just a footnote in history, and the St Laurence seaway wasn't an option why?

Was it followed by a cloud of kitchen utensils?

Plug it in. lets see what it can do.

A day in a Bolingbrook Costco parking lot?

Oh great, now it's full of graffiti.

It has to go the way of the bumble bee, not the way of the crow.

or in other words it cannot  go through bridges and tunnels so it has to take the scenic route.

and Long Island is actually an island.

Reading, how the fark does it work?

FTA:
It started its trip in late June, floating by barge down the East Coast into the Gulf of Mexico - where it outran a tropical depression - then up the Mississippi River, where it was photographed drifting past St. Louis' arch on its way into Illinois.

And since you have issues understanding things, the thing is too large for most roads, which is why it went by boat for most of the trip.  Did you not even see the pictures?

You should call Fermi Labs right now and ask them why they are so retarded.

I would think we could use it to wipe minds.

So they came up 355 and Butterfield? I can't Imagine it fitting... I had a friend say she saw the giant magnet at Hidden Lake. I had no idea wtf she was on about. But that was the forest preserve mentioned in the article. Located at rt53 and Butterfield. Down the road from where I grew up. Bummer I missed it. Used to drive through Fermi all the time and have friends who have worked there.

Much less expensive on one barge by sea and river, I'd guess, instead of dealing with the statistical danger of 14 locks and the vagaries of navigating the length of the northern lakes.
Much simpler route and probably faster route.

There are these things called, "mountains" between NY and Illinois.

That's the second biggest magnet I've ever seen.

I looked at the route and they swung past Havana. That thing is full of drugs. Or Cubans.

Imagine how retarded things wouldn't be up there if they just had you to show them the obvious. All those options right there and they didn't even consider them. What a total bunch of dumbasses.

You seem to know nothing about the Mississippi after the attention of the Army Corps of Engineers.

As a barge builder, I must express my outrage at the lack of details about the barge used in the move. It's clearly not a clean or dirty fuel barge, has no expansion trunks, and it has no apparent access points or wingtanks.

I DEMAND BARGE TALK.

Sorry, I'll put some pants on.

I wish they'd hurry up and get it here. I've got very important papers that I need to stick to the door of my refrigerator.

I love rare earth magnets, especially the ones I take from old hard drives I can't use anymore. Those tiny magnets are strong and make great, but ugly, refrigerator magnets.

I wish it was a big ass-magnet instead of a big-ass magnet.

So that's why the minute hand on my watch had been pausing on the three all day Thursday.

Hey look, now it's pausing at six!  Cool!

Kudos to AP photographer Scott Eisen for capturing the nighttime photo of the truck carrying the magnet with "EMC2" on the building in the background.

I have been on top of this magnet:

while it was operating. It was covered by a thick layer of concrete shielding blocks, but the stray field was still strong enough that you could hold a coin vertically and hang another one from the bottom edge due to the induced magnetism (in Canada, where we have nickels that are actually made from nickel). It was not strong enough to damage credit cards, watches, etc. although it did mess with the CRT monitors in nearby offices.
