I have a little life theory which I’ve always thought, and it’s based on absolutely nothing. I think one of the clues you can see in a child which hints that he or she will grow up to be a creative geek has to do with magnets. If a child loves to play with magnets then chances are he or she is on a geeky path in life. I only say this because of my own observations, and I’ve seen it many times.
When I was little, I loved playing with magnets, but most of my friends thought they were boring. You can view a magnet two different ways. It can either be a boring little piece of ugly, gray, cold metal or it can be a mysterious tool that opens up all kinds of wonders in the world. It just all depends on how you look at it.
If you are like me, and if you still like magnets even as an adult, you will probably enjoy this little chart created by Yumi at WonderHowTo. In this illustration called 11 Weird And Wonderful Uses For Magnets, Yumi details all kinds of different things you can do with them which could actually be really helpful around the house. The best ones on here for me would be to use a magnet to create a handy fridge pen, and to use it to find studs in the wall (I never can find those suckers). This little chart might also be helpful for any student looking for a fast and easy science project. I know my teachers used to always love stuff like this. What other fun uses to you know of for magnets? Enjoy!
