Great video .. but i hate this catastrophic predictions in US documentaries. it's just a fraction of a possibility, why do they have to scare us all the time.

i know a few guys with weak magnetic field in their heads :D

woa woa woa, they just cut the video off there!?!? What about answering the question of if we turn off our own magnetic fields could we walk through walls? And what about the catastrophe of a CME hit?? he said it happens rarely, so when will it happen next? AAAAAAAAAHHHHH

No...sorry they are wrong! It's not magnetic force that keeps us from walking through walls and solid surfaces. The only thing keeping us from walking through solid stuff is DENSITY!

That ball would have eventually make it's way between the spinning fan blades if it had enough speed (that's why the guy throws it slow)... that would mean if you hit a wall at 3600 mph you would, theoretically, dodge the atoms and go right through... when in reality you would end up human puree.

Density people...that's the real motive.

Density and the application of pressure. X-rays and other radiation can go through solid objects, because of their photons are far less dense... not because they somehow magically dodge the spinning electrons...

actually it says almost nothing of what magnetism is, or how it works... it is just a bad show.

#8 :(|)

Density is a materialproperty. How close is the structure of a material packed? The density.

Magnetic force is an energyform, on atomic level the force that holds atoms together. This field has an influence on the density, but DENSITY IS ONLY A MEASUREMENT!! (determing how solid a material is)

BAN MAGNETISM NOW! Its a big threat to our planet. They said so in this video.

Damn I hate this Doom's day videos on silly car analogies. Except for that not a bad video for a kinder!

This movie could be informative... for 7-14 years old childre! I mean come on, most if not every one of us learned this in school and they make "SUPERSCIENCE" document of this basic matter.

Good for MTV maybe, as they usually do too long videos about stuff that could be showed in 30sec.

Greets :)

I hate how these types of programs always have to be over dramatic, always pointing to some possible but unlikely apocalyptic outcome for our planet. Can't the science just be interesting for its own sake, instead have having to fit into the context of some shitty Rolan Emmerich film?

Haha, sorry but that chick and her excitement towards magnets made me think: MAGNETIC DILDO! @ her come...
