@kolluri,
Because they have no inhibitions?

Magnetic force
Magnetic fields exert a force on particles in the field, called the Lorentz force. The motion of electrically charged particles gives rise to magnetism. The magnetic force acting on a single electric charge depends on the size of the charge, its speed, and the strengths of the electric and magnetic fields.

I'm still trying to work out the monopole magnet. Anybody want in on the ground floor?

@roger,
Hmm. Why wouldn't an electron (or positron) be considered a magnetic monopole?

@FBM,
Dunno, but the applications would be tricky.

@roger,
Not to mention the packaging...

I went to a monopoledancing club a while back.


Don't remember much.

An electron has an electric, not magnetic, field due to its charge. It has a magnetic field, with both a north and south pole, due to its spin.

@Lordyaswas,
And they say nerds have no sense of humour. Smile
