Astrophysicist Gets Magnets Stuck Up Nose While Inventing Coronavirus Prevention Device

I like this story because A) it’s a great example of problem solving, and how it can run amuck, B) it’s also a great example of how folks turn to Google to solve problems they’ve created for themselves, and C) getting things stuck in your nose – well if we haven’t done it ourselves, we know someone who has. For our family it was the visit to the doctor because my little brother, at age 3, had really started to smell bad. The reason? He’d stuffed bits of sponge up his nose and now they were starting to stink. They were safely removed and we all learned an important lesson about what belongs in noses. What’s your story?

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
