The magnetic electric razor reminds me of the child's toy where you use a magnet to place iron filings on the face of a bald man to create hair styles and mustache/beard styles, and also remove them.

When I lived in Minneapolis I came across the Museum of Questionable Medical Devices which had a number of similar exhibits. I don't know if it still exists but it is worth a visit if you are ever in the area.

Imagine if the powers that be would actually confess and say magnetism, electricity and gravity are all the same phenomenon. We as bipeds we are just to stupid to know the formula to make a universal theory an equation. They wont tell the Sun is more irradiant for the climate warming or that the magnetic poles have moved hundreds of miles to the coming positions. The coupcoup are hiding facts scientists are publishing, well NASA is changing facts to make climate fraud possible...

KDP: The museum of questionable medical devices is no longer. It was one of the most wonderful bizarre collections I have ever seen. When the museum closed, the collection of devices went to the Minnesota Science Museum in St. Pauls. The last time I was at the science museum they had a few devices out on display, but not all of them, alas.

Hugo Gernsback, no less!

@Churchie-boy: stop hallucinating. You're only embarrassing yourself.

@Richard Bos
Gernsback indeed. The Electrical Experimenter was his first publication, I believe. He printed some early "scientifiction" (his term) there before starting Amazing Stories. Thanks for mentioning his name. Now I have something else to look for at the Internet Archive.
