3. I'm very confused!
I had an MRI about two years ago, and I have a large piece of metal in my arm. At work, I accitentally pick-up magnetized pieces of metal all of the time with the side of my arm. The doctor said the piece of metal in my arm wouldn't be a problem. During my MRI, I didn't even feel any pressure from the piece of metal being pulled towards the machine. How could it have picked-up a metal bucket?

I'd say that janitorial job doesn't sound attractive. :D

5. Last year there was a story where someone was killed
when something metallic flew through the air during a patient's MRI.
