(NaturalNews) Yesterday I posted what I thought would be a rather ho-hum video showing Wheaties flakes clinging to a common magnet
. I then explained that Wheaties cereal contains ferrous metal fragments. Immediately, I was accused of staging an elaborate hoax.
P.R. Newswire, which hilariously bills itself as "the authoritative source of news and information for leading global media organizations," totally refused to publish my food science demonstration, telling me they thought it must be a hoax of some sort. Or voodoo. Or special effects.
I was dumbfounded. And then I saw on Youtube and Facebook that people were accusing me of using elaborate computer graphics, a green screen, special effects or sleight of hand to "fake" the astonishing video which has already gone viral.
Seriously, I've come to the conclusion that people are incredibly stupid... too stupid to understand basic high school physics involving the action of magnets. Somehow, people believe pharmaceutical pills will make them healthy, but they can't believe that breakfast cereals contain shards of metal which can be lifted by magnets. Hmmm...
Magnets are not voodoo or witchcraft. They really do operate using invisible force fields which can affect objects at a distance. That's not a conspiracy theory; it's basic fundamental physics. If magnets didn't work, you wouldn't even be reading this because the entire national power grid would not exist. Generators, in fact, turn mechanical rotary energy into alternative electrical current by using powerful magnets.
If you have a cereal like Wheaties which is full of metal fragments, and you use a high-powered magnet to manipulate them, you can cause tiny cereal flakes to leap off the table, or cling to the magnet, or even be repelled from the magnet if you push them to the correct region of the magnet. This isn't rocket science
. I personally didn't even think this would be controversial.
But because we now live in a society where people are unbelievably ignorant of basic scientific phenomena, I was forced to film a video response explaining all this and clearly showing absolute proof
that Wheaties cereal
can be manipulated, lifted or even briefly "levitated" using magnets. I also plan to send this to PR Newswire, so that they can be amazed by my "magic powers."
Watch that short video here, and see the proof for yourself:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MLS3dA72Tg
