CURIOUS MATTER OF ATTRACTION

Useful in industry and the home, magnets are also very good for picking up people.

PICKING up pins with toy magnets is kid stuff to the Eriez Company of Erie, Pa. Designers of magnets for industry, Eriez at-tractors can pick up people—if they’re attached to something magnetized. Industrial magnets have other uses, too. Housewives, for example, use them to pluck tin cans from high shelves. Rolling varieties will pick up anything made of metal. The beauty of these magnets is that they won’t lose more than one per cent of their strength in a century of pulling—a real attraction.

    That gal hanging upside down is just a bit too kinky.

    Eriez “at-tractors”; Is that the actual name of the company?? I gotta use that somewhere!

    And; the copy-writer lost a great opportunity of saying that magnets are useful for picking up girls.

    I believe Eriez is the company name, and the term “attractors” is a descriptive term for the magnets.

    But we definitely need a band called “The Eriez Attractors.” Actually, it sounds better as “John Doe and the Eriez Attractors.”

    Damn, if I could play any sort of instrument other than an Ohm Meter that would be the band name! Great way to pick up girls.
