I was at a hardware show, there was a booth where they guy was selling what amounted to a big old magnet you clamped around the copper water pipe. This was supposed to somehow clean the water and remove bad stuff.
It was $99 I think, I saw at least 1 or 2 people walk away with them. Barnum was right.
I played around with my keys near the magnets, they appeared to be pretty powerful. Interesting scenario: if you get a little too close to the car as you walk up to it, I'll bet it grabs the body with a bang!
Unless you own a Corvette....
