surely all magnets will do this not just those in earbuds. So.... the magnets in your Feder Stratocaster, which of course you hold across your chest , will do the same and standing beside your floor standing HiFi speakers will also do the same ... but what a way to go!!!!!!
Gives a whole new meaning to going Dutch.
lies damn lies & statistics
Percentages tell us nothing useful. As in "a 100%rise in ......." there was one last year and two this year. All they do is panic the public and create a demand for something that is almost certainly not required. i.e. ID cards , wars on Iraq etc.

Lies,damn lies & statistics

The Dh Comet from which this derives first flew in 1949. As, for some reason (It's a tradition, and old charter or something © rankin) these are thought of as female It'a bout due to be retired anyway.
