Great gag gift

These are just the thing for your DIY particle accelerator. Oh, you don't have a home particle accelerator? Get with it, man!

Give a set of these super-magnets to your friends (or enemies) and watch the fun begin. These things are powerful enough that the manufacturer (United Nuclear - there's your first clue about the power you're dealing with) feels compelled to include this blurb in the disclaimer:

Beware - you must think ahead when moving these magnets. If carrying one into another room, carefully plan the route you will be taking. Computers & monitors will be affected in an entire room. Loose metallic objects and other magnets may become airborne and fly considerable distances - and at great speed - to attach themselves to this magnet. If you get caught in between the two, you can get injured. Two of these magnets close together can create an almost unbelievable magnetic field that can be very dangerous. Of all the unique items we offer for sale, we consider these two items the most dangerous of all. Our normal packing & shipping personnel refuse to package these magnets - our engineers have to do it. This is no joke and we cannot stress it strongly enough - that you must be extremely careful - and know what you're doing with these magnets. Take Note: Two of the 3" x 1" disc magnets can very easily break your arm if they get out of control.
