Just implanted my first magnet
I started looking around for a magnet in late 2015, with absolutely no luck. Went away for like 10 months and missed a big batch of m31's (my dream magnet), so I settled for a haworth magnet instead.
It came in the mail today and I quickly set up my workstation and began cutting. It was literally hell, and I made a huge mistake not using any numbing agent other than ice water, because it hurt like a bitch. I had to go back and widen the hole three times, and by the second time my vision was swimming and I thought I was going to lose consciousness. At one point I accidentally scraped my bone with the tip of the knife, which was unintended, and it felt like nails on a chalkboard - except I was the chalkboard. Almost vomited right there. It took four total insertions of the blade to actually make a hole of the right proportions to fit the magnet. Somehow I plopped the magnet in, but I ended up just bandaging it rather than using stitches because I was in too much pain and too lightheaded to continue hurting myself.
It's been about six hours since it went in now and the skin has sealed back up over the wound. I took a video, but for various reasons including me being a pussy and my girlfriend being in the frame, I'd rather not post it. I'll update on how the magnet fares in a month or two, if I remember to come back.
