The problem with foil underpants is that when the magnetic Poles flip, instead of clinging on, they'll be blown off.


Ooooh, nasty.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Some would appreciate being blown off

Maybe all these electric cars, that the govt are pushing as the solution, are affecting the earth's magnetic field, like there's only so much magnetism to go around.

Let's face it, when were out politicians ever wrong about environmental issues?

Anyone like to buy my diesel car?

..... Or maybe the N and S poles are just fed up of being cold and do are heading for the Equator. Maybe that's why the ice caps are melting. ... And Africa and Mexico need to start wrapping up warm.
