This is kind of a cheesy post.
Ever since my CI surgery has been scheduled I have had these moments where out of the blue I think to myself “…I’m going to have a magnet in my head?!…seriously?!……that just feels so….abnormal and weird.” It’s kind of hard to grasp that concept when I really stop and think about it.
Anyways, I was scrolling through msnbc.com headlines and saw one titled “Florida Tests Using Magnets to Repel Crocodiles.” Since magnets have been on my mind lately and how it will affect a couple of things (e.g. airport security checkpoints and MRIs)….I decided to click on the link to see what I will have in common with crocodiles.
From the article:
“Wildlife managers in the state are taping magnets to the reptiles’ heads in an attempt to disrupt their “homing” abilities. “
“Scientists believe they rely in part on the Earth’s magnetic fields to navigate, and that taping magnets to both sides of their heads disorients them.”
Tune in a few days after surgery to see if I found my way home. 😉
