<< what I have always wondered is why you cant put a magnet back together 
 once you break one in half.....  the joint is perfectly matched .....   
 but it still repells each of the matching halves no matter how hard 
 t\you try to press them back together....  :)

Thats because once a magnet is broken, it forms NEW poles.And they repell and 
refuse to be joined again.
