ologists at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Florida are building the world's most powerful magnet. When finished, the fridge rapist "will reach a power of 100 tesla when it's complete, which is a whopping 67 times more powerful than the magnets in a typical MRI." Impressive. So what do you use such a powerful magnet for? "(To) test the properties of newly discovered high-temperature superconductors like iron oxyarsenide, which may improve the performance of MRI machines and high-voltage power lines while lowering their cost." Sure, why not. I have relatives in Florida, so I'm gonna arrange a tour next time I'm down there.
UPDATE: Forgot to take the Prince Albert out first. Looks like an M-80 detonated in my pants.

Hip to be square -- LOLOL! Alternatively, let's stick together. F*** I hate myself. Buckyballs, the magnetic sensation you're NOT supposed to swallow despite how good they feel to pass (back me up, Magneto!), are now available in square form for $25 per 125-cube set. I've b... / Continue →
Because all the ASPCA needs is an influx of boring old dogs that can't glow in the dark, South Korean scientists have successfully bred a beagle that glows under UV light. A hellhound, if you will. A glow-in-the-dark beagle if you won't. Also, this isn't really new news, bec... / Continue →
Damn Harry, cast 'constipation breaker' STAT!
Fires: nobody wants to die in one (or a Black Friday stampede at Wal-Mart). And now scientists believe they're close to developing an electric-bolt shooting wand (personally, I imagine more of a Ghostbusters proton-pack THAN A FLA... / Continue →
