Post a video with a bar magnet held near your compass to prove that it is still working correctly, then post a video of some street signs of straight streets near your house (somewhere in the same town -- doesn't need to give away where you live obviously) that we can find on google maps, then post a video panning from the street signs down to the compass, which should clearly not be near any magnetic or metallic objects (short sleeves, etc)...
or it didn't happen.
Somehow I think aeroplanes might've noticed by now if magnetic north had moved 90 degrees. Don't you!?edit on 20-3-2011 by XtraTL because: (no reason given)

It's almost like it's something in the center of the U.S. that has a distinct range.

I thought that these two images would help.
Thats why a lot of people across the globe report the same thing?
Move along, your attempt at disinfo is not welcome.

I would suggest for this study to be more accurate that contributers get in their cars and take readings from a number of different types of sites, the more, within reason, the better. The more reliable the data points are obviously the more reliable the data. I still have yet to aquire a compass and take some, will do so shortly and post results from mid-Missouri.

i'd rather see what everybody has to say, and what readings they are getting, like somebody said earlier it could be something manmade causing it which would not effect everybody, but regardless whatever it is people are getting different readings.
The arrow is also attracted by any mass of metal-a truck, your rifle, your helmet, and even electrical power lines. Thus, be sure you use your compass away from metal objects so it will not give a wrong reading.
Pretty bold claims since all of the people in red on This Map are claiming their compasses are off.
If you are claiming that all of the people researching this issue are hoaxing the board - you better be able to back that claim up... that is a bold statement.
