Watch this CNN video about a young girl who swallowed 37 Bucky Ball high-powered magnets. The magnets tore three holes in her lower intestines and one in her stomach. Her mother said, “If we had any idea what they could have done to her, we would have never had them in our house.”
Similar super-magnets are sold under the names Neocubes, Nanodots and Zen Magnets, among others.
