Re: magnets in HDs

This is one I've never understood. If I have a bar
magnet that is N====S, then I break it in two, it
seems like I should have a N==S N==S, but since the
two repel, do I now have N==S S==N? Why did one flip
polarity and the other one not?

I realize we're drifting dangerously OT.
