I'm having magnets implanted in my fingers today

Tiny rare earth magnets that are injection molded with a bio-compatible material used on pacemakers. They're going in the tips of two of my fingers and I'll be able to feel electric fields once they're in. Only two people in the country do the procedure but it's been done hundreds of times over the past 6 years or so. I'm getting a sixth sense

Not an issue. MRI is a serious concern though.

Because its not a medical procedure, my only anesthetic will be ice (and maybe some bourbon). Your fingertips are the second most nerve-dense area in your body after your d!ck. it's going to hurt, but it'll be worth it.

Do you think you will be able to detect the presence of ghosts?

This will be useful to you in your future career sorting magnet-based Happy Meal toys in a sweatshop in China somewhere. You will beat all quotas!

$220 for two. I think one is $120. Edit: only two guys in the country do the procedure, so keep travel costs in mind if you're wanting to do it.

I will if I can. I'm not sure if my friends will be here by then or not, don't know when their flights are. And it's not strong enough to kill a credit card or HDD.

I just read one of the same things you obviously already read..

He mentioned something about a bear playing electric guitar.. So now I am thinking that you could do something crazy with them and an electric guitar..

otherwise your best party trick will be picking up a staple..
