I have fond memories of my grandfather, who was a very wise man, calling me to him and saying: "Maarten…" (He always used to call me Maarten.) "Maarten," he'd say, "I've heard that the earth can be seen as a very large magnet, with the earth's poles acting very much like a regular magnet's poles. I think that's total nonsense." He told this lovely story many times. Of course, being just a lad, my answer could only ever be: "What? I don't know. What?"
But his words kept ringing in my mind and set off a train of thought ultimately leading to a) my finding out that indeed the earth does work like a magnet and b) my design of this 270 degree hook.
