What does /g/ think about implanting a small neodymium magnet inside your finger? Apparently when the nerves around it heal it allows you to sense magnetic fields as the magnet reacts to them.

Worth the pain and possible negative immune system reactions?
>>
Why would you want to sense magnetic fields? It must feel disturbing as fuck, and is pretty much useless.
>>
>>52248179
You can use it to detect current in wires also. You should be able to use your hand as a stud detector
>>
>>52248179
essentially this. i thought about it a few years ago but decided it was a bad idea because the long term impacts would be pretty serious. your fingers wouldn't survive a trip into an MRI room, for one. but more generally, you'd *constantly* be feeling this shit.

The notion of having a sense of EM waves is a very neat one for about 5 minutes when you think about it safely in your head, but actually doing it would be the act of an immature, imprudent jackass with no eye toward long-term repercussions.

Your life and your body are not appropriate field sites to experiment haphazardly with half-baked ideas. doing anything to your body that leaves anything there or changes anything should be *very* carefully considered.

>Apparently when the nerves around it heal it allows you to sense magnetic fields as the magnet reacts to them.
Sounds like bullshit. A magnet is a magnet and not a magnetic sensor, human nerves surrounding it don't change that.

That's like tacking pic rel to your forehead and claiming you can locate yourself.
>>
There was a Joe Rogan podcast about guys who do it, but they are very very green and not really a legit company. Just a few fucks performing surgery on themselves. Not sure whatever happened to them.
>>
>>52248247
The magnet wobbles and moves around inside your flesh, it's even possible for it to flip if you're around strong enough magnetic fields. You don't feel the field, you just feel your magnet moving inside you.
>>
>>52248202
is the inability to detect current in wires something that's seriously holding you back in life? does fixing that outweigh all the drawbacks of having magnets in your fingertips?

people don't appreciate how delicate your fingertips are. not just in terms of dexterity, either - you have an intense packing of nerves at your fingertips.

again, this is the kind of stupid impulsive thing that sounds neat for 5 minutes when you let your inner child run loose with the idea. the problem is that you're (hopefully) an adult and eventually you need to take control of that train of thought.
>>
>>52248247
They mean you can feel it moving in your finger.

Magnets in the fingers sounds like a good way to damage hard drives.
>>
>>52248247
The human nervous system is actually pretty cool. The brain learns to interpret all kinds of nervous impulses as data. Blind people can learn to interpret electrical impulses given off by a simulated eye as a crude version of sight.

Itd probably work, once your nerves recovered and brain learned to interpret it.
>>

I think he means that it would push up against the nerves in you're finger

This
If you want to know how annoying it'd be you can glue a very small neodymium magnet to your fingernail. The sensation's not as strong but it'd give you a rough idea.

I'd rather get an NFC chip implant, they're relatively safe and easy to put in
>>
Sounds really dumb. You're free to fuck yourself up but I wouldn't recommend it.
>>
>>52248276
This. Just superglue a magnet to your finger for a week and you'll get the exact same sensation.

>>52248159
I had to have a glass shard removed from my index. Along with it they removed a small lump of flesh since they couldn't find the shard.
After the anesthetic effect wore off I was hit by the worse pain I ever suffered.
The subsequent two weeks were hell, and only after a couple of months the pain passed entirely.
When I discovered that there were two shards and they removed just one I decided to keep the second and the occasional low pain not to go through that again.
So no, I don't think that sensing magnetic fields is worth it.

>it allows you to sense magnetic fields as the magnet reacts to them.
I cannot see a significant amount of value in this.

>Worth the pain and possible negative immune system reactions?
>possible negative immune system reactions?
HELL NO!

Also, assuming there were no negative reactions from the body, there would still be some negative reactions from one's electronic devices. I would rather not destroy my laptop hard drives all the fucking time.

It can't?

Then No. That is just stupid.

Not really.
For putting the magnet in, you have to take some flesh out.
Or having an external body pressing on skin/flesh, which is also painful.
I just brought my experience with foreign bodies in your fingers to the table, explaining it's one of the worst pain you can experience.
If you're too stupid to understand it, it's your problem.

Oh I see, so you get this terrible feeling of having your skin pulled off from the inside any time your finger comes near a ferrous object.

The machine would literally rip the magnets right out from under your skin. MRI's are like super magnets bruh.

well you know mri is a big magnet
i know at least one guy was crushed to death when he took an oxygen tank into the mri room and the mri machine picked up the tank and pulled it across the room with enough force to kill the guy.

if you have ferrous material in your body it will get really fucking hot and move around

A glass shard and a round piece of metal are totally different sensations. I have a piece of metal inside my middle finger due to an accident and I hardly ever felt any pain, aside from the tendon recovery exercises.

Here's the proper tool for that job, also with the added benefit of not fucking electrocuting yourself by sticking your hands on potentially exposed hot wires.

Or the position of your tongue in your mouth.

Why not just suck a magnet with some tape on your finger, and get the same amazing effect, but with the ability to take it off.

Even that is pretty pointless.

this picture reminds me of these fucking niggers where I used to live who tried to rob and shoot people using birdshot, they were the stupidest mother fuckers out there.

I remember once they tried to hold up a convenience store and the owner pulled out his sidearm and they got into a firefight, retards just shot at him with bird shot he only got hit 3 or 4 times with individual pellets and killed one of them in return and wounded the other to the point where he couldn't get up.

Damn I miss the 90s.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saltatory_conduction
it's not electrical conduction, it is a chain effect as each section of membrane triggeres the next, as its (static) charge changes rapidly due to ion exchange
>>
>>52256237
>>52256245
>splitting hairs
I work as a biomedical engineer. Yes they use potassium salts to transfer the electrical signals, and technically it isn't current in the traditional sense because it's not electrons moving across a metallic wire, but when you work with it you refer to it as current because it behaves similarly. It's been a while since I was in college and gave a fuck about the specific biochemistry, I'm glad they teach you kids these things though.

A neodymium magnet that has current induced in it could provide the same electrical potential to the next nerve as if it were a nerve itself.
