Also, on House last night an inmate was getting an MRI and they warned him that his tattoos (which contained metallic ink) would get sucked out of his skin in the MRI- which is basically a big magnet. They tattooed pig skin on Mythbusters and it didn’t get sucked out, although they put a cube full of the ink in the MRI and it bounced around as though it was in a dryer.
I like getting books as gifts, as long as they’re something i’m really interested in reading – my mom knows my taste so she did good. i’m not much of a book reader, i don’t really have time. when i used to skytrain to and from work for 45 mins (each direction) every day i had the time to read. now, not so much – although i’ll have to make time for it …especially once jPod is released 😉
