Vat19, purveyors of “curiously awesome” products, have outcurioused and outawesomed themselves with this one: For a mere $13.50, you can buy a handy 3.2 ounce blob of magnetic Silly Putty. And they’ll even throw in a powerful neodymium iron boron magnet, for added rare-earth magnetic fun! The magnetic Putty is loaded with “millions of tiny micron-sized magnets” which give it its unusual properties. Inb4 Insane Clown Posse reference.
