Sadly not the case,

Our planet does that, Chandler wobble etc. 16000 and 32000 years if you look at the magnetic field and then the actual poles. Evidence can be found in the way magnetic particles are arrayed inside the earths crust, sediments etc. They align one way and in the next layer they are all another.

My geology degree had a piece on it, helps lend evidence to the theory that Atlantis was Antarctica because 10000 years ago it was on the equator. (well people walked on it)

Assuming we live that long as a species it will be 'interesting' day to relay on magnets or electromagnetism.
