    'Virus-fighting' scientist gets magnets stuck in nose

    'Virus-fighting' scientist gets magnets stuck in nose
    30 March 2020

    An Australian astrophysicist who hoped to create a device to help stop people catching the coronavirus has ended up in hospital - after getting magnets stuck up his nose.

    Dr Daniel Reardon came up with a plan to create a necklace which would react if your hands were near your face.

    Unfortunately, the device did not work quite as planned.

    "My invention had the opposite effect – it buzzed continuously until a magnet was put close."

    'I knew I was in trouble'
    "I had a laugh and gave up temporarily," he told the BBC. "Then I started mindlessly placing the magnets on my face. First my ear lobes, then my nostrils – like a magnetic piercing.

    "The problem was when I put magnets in my other nostril. They all pinched together, and the ones on my septum got stuck!"

    The university research fellow remained calm, however.

    "At first it hurt, but I wasn’t too stressed," he said. "I started to get more and more stressed when I realised it wasn’t going to be trivial to remove them.

    "Then, after using my last two magnets in a futile attempt to remove the magnets, and getting those stuck too, I knew I was in trouble."

    What an idiot!
    "What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer."

    Am I the only one who wants to stick him to a refrigerator?
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.
