Bill Nye did this once- but he also stepped the experiment up at few notches by constructing one in a 55 gallon drum, using a bag of sand as the weight. I've love to get a shot of the inside of a 55-gallon one so I could make my own.

lol very very far off.... this doesn't even have a magnet, oh and its the Hutchinson Effect... but still this is very very cool. Sorry to be rude
If you do it in a can you can say that you are magician!
