Magnets: just another Greek invention. 8)

Ancient people learned about magnetism from lodestones, naturally magnetized pieces of iron ore. They are naturally created magnets, which attract pieces of iron. The word magnet in Greek meant "stone from Magnesia",[1] a part of ancient Greece where lodestones were found. Lodestones suspended so they could turn were the first magnetic compasses. The earliest known surviving descriptions of magnets and their properties are from Greece, India, and China around 2500 years ago.[2][3][4] The properties of lodestones and their affinity for iron were written of by Pliny the Elder in his encyclopedia Naturalis Historia.[5]

I don't think this has anything to do with magnets. The "Mag" in the name seems to stand for "Magic".

:lol: Read the patent link.

A self-activating closure mechanism is described. In certain embodiments, containers or closures have closure elements, which, upon being brought into proximity to each other, are drawn together and urged into alignment to engage locking members by magnets or other mutually attractive or repulsive elements, thereby providing a self-closing assembly.

1. Found (as magnetism is a naturally occurring phenomenon not invented).
2. Of course just ignore the Indians and Chinese in the passage they don't matter.
3. They WON'T use the greek meaning of the word. As they have there own language.
