Magnets, how do they work? Perhaps the greatest question ever posed by modern philosophers around the world. Wait, some guys in clown makeup said that? Okay, I take that last part back.

As you will from the following video, the end results can be quite mesmerizing:
And now, tonight at dinner when all your family talks about their day you can drop their collective jaw by telling them how you learned about “Lenz’s Law And Faraday’s Law of Induction to generate electricity and magnetic force fields in copper” and you can watch them have no idea what you are talking about, which is always nice because it makes us feel superior to those around us.
And who doesn’t like feeling intellectually superior to those they love?
