Magnetic fields

Magnetic fields exist around many items we commonly carry with us on the hill; mobiles & smart phones, magnets hidden inside mobile phone cases, avalanche transceivers, radios, personal locator beacons, GPS, cameras, car keys, small magnets on belt fastenings, under-wired bra’s ……

Reversed Polarity

Now, on a more serious note, I've had to rely on a compass on long duration solo hillwalks in very poor (bugger all) viz. I hold mine "up and out" when in use. It's important to TRUST your compass, even when it's telling you something you don't agree with - generally the compass is right

Now, don't ask why, but we have a washing machine at work. The pump jammed one day and the maintenance dude pulled a HUGE underwire out of it.

He then proceeds to sit the most likely candidate down, pulls out the underwire and says "So, Cinderella..."

I swear to God it happened - I dealt with the complaint!

Apparently,Underwire Bra's are a serious hazard when being worn during a lightning storm too,which seems to be pushing things out of all proportion
