It usually starts with the female magnet saying she doesn't want to have induction.

But in quantum spin liquids, the electrons are positioned in a triangular lattice and form a "ménage à trois" characterized by intense turbulence that interferes with their order. The result is an entangled wave function and no magnetic order.

Go on...

Does a frustrated magnet attract or repel ferrous material? Seems like if there's no alignment it would basically be not a magnet, or I guess more accurate to say it wouldn't exhibit a magnetic effect.

I was trying to put two magnets together the other way, and one of them jumped up and took my eye out.  They weren't just frustrated, they were really mad.  You have to respect natural law.

Can someone help me out here?  What are the uses of these frustrated magnets?  Do they have industrial uses?  Are they just neat, but different type of magnets?  I've looked in ze Googles and I get no answers other than it might lead to better superconductivity.

Here I thought someone had solved the copper & magnets oddity.  Alas.
