I tried searching Google and Yahoo for information on this, but my quick try gave me nothing (Maybe you will have better luck) Does anyone know anything about this phenomenon? I briefly saw them on this 'Bizzare world' sort of program on Discovery channel. It wasn't a pseudo science sort of program as much as it was a 'look at all of the strange things people do' program (It had a guy who eats everything, the japanese log riding event, people piercing everything etc) Anyway, amongst all that it showed this family from taiwan (apparently this phenomenon is common to the whole family) who seemed to be attractive to all sorts of materials. By putting spoons etc up against them, they would just stick there as if they were attracted by magnets. My first thought was "Cool. Their body somehow produces a magnetic field." But then the stuck a glass ashtray to their forehead. Not only that, but some doctor studying them says that they cannot detect any magnetic field or anything. So....unless this is some sort of incredibly elaborate hoax....or something, this is incredibly interesting. Does anyone know anything about it??????
