Blobby, do you really the water as a liquid is magnetic? The individual water molecules do have a very small positive charge on one side and a very
small negative on the other, due to the fact the oxygen and hydrogen don't have the same electron affinity. It would seem to me that the movement of
the molecules in liquid water makes it impossible to water the charges of the water molecules ordened in such a place that the entire water is
magnetic, but maybe there's something I didn't of. I would be interested in a link as well.
