Well, no, first we had to wait for gall stones to pass (very high
iron/calcium content in the water), then we had to trek from north pole to
south (to get the proper alignment) while holding the stones in a very
precise position. THEN, we had magnets! (We were, after all, short legged)

Of course, once we were done, then we donated the used stones for recycling
at the blacksmith. Thus, after many moons was made....ExGALLibur!

/me runs, ducking in shame.
