[SOLVED] Refrigerator Magnet??

A magnet is suppose to have two poles the north and south, it is said that you can't ever have a magnet with only one pole. So how do refrigerator magnets work if they only have one side??

Thanks,
Daniel

Refrig magnets don't have one side they have six.

If you remove the side that has the picture or whatever on it, you have left a six sided magnet.

It actually contains many small slits that are magnets. Try rubbing the magnet across the frig in different directions, you'll find some rub fine and some do not.

This is due to the oposiing magnetic force.

Got it?
