    CSI Episode

    Did anyone else catch that stupid epasode last night?

    The bullets from the crime are magnetic.
    they looked like wadcutters but did not look deformed at all.
    they looked to be dirty cylinder magnets.
    the magnitic properity was not discuvered untell they were placed on a table top.

    Then they show the revolver 'sticking' to a filing cabnet because it is magnetic also.

    a lady with a revolver in her purse walks into a room where they are conductiong a MRI, hangs out for about a minute and leaves. the purse does not move or even lean tward the machine.

    I would like at least a trace of reality in a show like this.

    Probably better in off topic, but...

    I didn't see it, but those magnets are powerful. The first ambulance company I worked for was sued when a crew left an oxygen bottle on the back of a stretcher. When they pushed the stretcher next to the patient, the magnet pulled it off the cot and it hit the elderly patient in the head, killing her.

    I read of one report where a gun was pulled from its holster and discharged due to the force.

    It is something to be aware of.

    I do not dispute the power of the magnets. They are very strong.
    But a large chunk of metal in a purse hanging from a strap should move a bit walking near one. and I have never seen magnetic lead, or magnetic copper. Steel core bullet may be, but how common are those?

    If I had a nickel for every time I told my wife something in a TV program was BS I'd be rich by now. TV land and Hollywood have been living in their own little fantasy land for so long they wouldn't know reality if it jumped up and bit them on their fat overpaid butts!

    Yes, the purse would have moved, but the concept is definitely there. I read a news report of some deputies escorting a prisoner/detainee to get an MRI. The cops firing pins actually got magnetized and the guns malfunctioned. Luckily, they figured it out on the range, and not on the street.

    I love CSI, for the record. Yeah, sometimes they're hokie, but that's part of the fun, picking out mistakes. I like to blurt out the types of guns they're using, especially with just a glimpse. My wife is no competition, lol.

    It has always made me wonder how anyone with reasonable intelligence can watch that sort of nonsense. I find it insulting to my intelligence, not to mention shows like that almost always have an anti gun slant to them.

    It's just a TV show. It is not a documentary.
