Man Implants Magnets on Wrist to Hold iPod Nano, Must Have Not Heard of Straps
May 10th, 2012
…then again, that’s like saying people who like permanent tattoos must have not heard of marker pens. Whatever the case, no, you are not on The Onion. Body piercer Dave Hurban really did install four magnets on his wrist, and yes, mounting an iPod Nano on that wrist is one of the reasons (if not the only reason) that led him to do it.
The proof is in the video below. There’s a bit of blood and drilling through skin and flesh involved (you have been warned,) but even if you don’t have the stomach for it, the image above shows the end result, so you’re not missing much.
And so now Hurban is much cooler or less cool or not cool at all depending on which YouTube commenter you ask. The only thing we can say with certainty is that he’d better be careful around MRI machines.
