Be careful with big magnets

Dirk is a fellow who owns a few large neodynium magnets.  He had them out and thought they were a safe distance apart...

...except they weren't.  They ended up flying 20 inches through the air and crushing his right index finger. 

Be forewarned: the link has some pretty graphic pictures of what strong magnets can do.  Trust me, it's pretty gross.
