MagNeato!



A Tower of metal blocks on a magnetic base. Whee.

I collect stainless steel magnetic desk toys like this one. I also sometimes have a lava lamp and one of those static balls. So let’s see: Liquids, strong magnets, and static electricity. Yes. These are great things to keep on my desk near my computers. All I need to complete the collection is an EM pulse disco ball or a little Koi Pond for my motherboard to float around in. Brilliant.

If the machines ever rise up and try to enslave humanity, I’m pretty sure I could fend them off by myself using just the toys on my desk.

    You know what would be the absolute coolest thing for your desk. One of those tilting birds that drink glasses of water. That would make you the most rockinest guy in town

    Absolutely. Ever stick a magnet to a computer? Maybe use a “chip clip” to hold your floppy disks?

    Hint: You won’t do it twice.
