You can end up degaussing a hard drive or have tools flying around. Generally you don't notice what they do to the body, since we're mostly not made up of strongly magnetic bits.

    The interesting story was someone who stuck his head inside of a device housing that contained very high fields to look. Someone asked, "See anything on the ground?" So the tech turned his his head 90-degrees to look down and almost instantly passed out.

    Funny thing: water is a very weak dipole. So it was assumed that though he was able to turn his skull and look down, all the fluids in his head tried to stay oriented as they were. So for an instant, the circulation in his head got completely turned around, causing him to faint.

    Of course he was fine once he came too. But man, what a magnet!
    Dang! 😲

    I have my Pre3 on a Touchstone on my dashboard. When it's charging it really does induce a static hiss into my FM radio reception. Lift the phone off, and the hiss stops.
