^That`s true, but it`s a much lesser effect than this, and that`s an electric field, not a magnetic field.

this might be fake, but i`ve done something like it before. in science class we were doing stuff with static electricity. if you get a glass stirring rod and rub it with material, then turn the tap on so it just streams through a bit, the water will bend away from the rod. that`s just normal everyday tap water.

but everything on this guys website is wrong, except silver being the darkest substance, even then, no one it`s a theory...

GIAG water is dipolar, so it can be magnetic, just very very very weakly so. Earths magnetism is about 30uT, while water needs about 10T to "float"

Meant to say "cannot" align particles in water... oops

The reason things are magnetic are that the particles are aligned, north-south so to speak. You can align particles like that in water. And hang on... 27% iron in spinach???? Give me a break.

instead, they should have a clip where they shove a magnet up a cat`s a** and show how they move the cat with a magnet >:)*

for those of you who can`t figure out why spinach doesn`t het attracted to a magnet is because the spinach is comprised of too many non-magnetic things, creating extra weight, and letting gravity take over the electromagnetic force, creating an imbalance and letting the leaf fall twoards the earth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AWESOME! I REALLY WANTED TO KNOW THAT.

that video is retarded. that would never work, spinach doesn`t contain enough iron to move a glass of water like that, and even if it did, it`s not the right kind of iron, and if it was the right kind of iron you would need a really powerful magnet, and if you had a really powerful magnet it would corrupt the data on the camera.

Weah, i`d say this page is as fake as can be:

"Lately Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens has taken a lot of guff for his assertion that the internet is a series of tubes. But cut the guy some slack! That is how it works in Alaska.

Allow me to explain. Standard internet wiring is far too fragile for the frozen wastelands of the Alaskan wilderness. So they use the Alaskan oil pipeline as a massive data conduit. As it turns out, crude oil is an excellent conductor due to its high carbon content... just like fiber optics.

Environmentalists are up in arms about this because certain kinds of data transfer across the pipeline drive polar bears bananas!"

Ehm..

Yup, Spinach contains lots of iron. Iron is magnetic. Weeeee. Wowie zowers.

If you are low on Iron, eat spinach and pears.

even tho this is fake water its self does move due to water, a very very small amount, but hey google is great. lol.

well, i just tried that, but you need a SUPER strong magnet and then you can barely move the water a smidgen.

Is the rest of the site fake as well? Because some of it seems like bullpoo but other things are plausible.

Read up on [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrofluid]ferrofluids[/url] instead. They actually exist, can actually be made in the home, and are far more fun, as they are in fact real. Unlike this garbage.

This guy is actually right. It`s a rather pathetic fake. Rheological fluids, that move with such a magnet, are generally not clear, and never exhibit such strong responses to a bar magnet, even if that was a neodymium, which it doesn`t look like it is.

More to the point, notice that when the magnet is moved forwards and back, the table tilts slightly, as the camera, in reality fixed to the moving table, isn`t quite on firmly enough.

It`s rather pathetic, and another thing people will blindly swallow, even when you can so obviously do it yourself and disprove it.

I hate things like this. They deliberately confuse people about science.

Yeah, and spinich although it contains iron, is NOT in it`s metal form, therefore is NOT magnetic. Spinich has been proven over and over again that in no way shape or form (unless you remove the iron and make it a metal) will it ever be magnetic.
