Fear The Ferrofluid

Ferrofluid never ceases to amaze Top Men. But watching this movie we can't help but think that it's best to keep it in the bottle. Seems better not to set the malevolent liquid free.

That stuff never fails to amaze me. It just seems so... alive. Y'know, I've only ever seen it in bottles or sealed display cases. I bet it gives you cancer on contact or somethin'.

There was a really neat interactive display of ferrofluid in the Boston Museum of Science a couple years ago. I got to drag this magnet through a box of the stuff. 'Course, it was all caged up, in one of those rubber-glove-boxes. Good thing, too: you never know what that stuff might try to do if ya let it.
