Do you have some special skill or party trick? As mentioned before, I post on a health-related website and someone posted wondering if it would be possible to stick a fridge magnet to our chests since having open heart surgery. Well, the answer is yes! I am not sure how useful this trick is in real life but I did take a photo of my chest with a couple of fridge magnets stuck to my scar!

Do you have some special trick?

I can hang a spoon from my nose, and bowl-out on my cheekbones and forehead... I have a picture from my prenup. dinner with three spoons ganging on my face. I also can and do pick things up with my feet, an ability I perfected when I was having bad back pain, because that way I don't have to bend over.

Sue, the magnet thing sounds interesting. Hope it isn't going to interfere with anything, though.

I did set off the security buzzer at the airport once, but it was only the once.

The artificial valves are mechanical, not electronic, so the magnets are harmless. My sternum has stainless steel 'ties' apparently, it is those to which the magnets stick.

I have dead nerves on one of my fingers from a cut when I was a kid - I can put a needle through it without feeling anything.
