    You are not worthy!

    Unless you have the same hand as the electrical engineer Allen Pan, you won't be able to lift the mock version of Mjolnir (Thor's Hammer), that he created. This clever fellow built a model of Thor's Hammer which has working internals consisting of a high powered electromagnet, and a fingerprint sensor that only accepts his fingerprint.

    Of course, he has to place the hammer down on a metallic surface for it to function properly, but it's all in good fun regardless. Check out the full video above for a hearty laugh.

    It makes me wonder ..how much can that magnet hold....obviously it was strong enough to suck that manhole onto its rim..or else i would think someone would have lifted it out of the hole...so I'm curious about the amount of clamping energy that electro magnet can generate.....interesting..

    Some of those manhole covers can be 200lbs.

    EDIT: I just googled it. 250-300lbs.

    Did you see the size of the folks trying? And with that kind of grip and stance?

    I didn't see any big guys...remember.. Big to me and big to you?? I'm 6'6" and 300 lbs at 20% body fat...trying to get to 10%

    But you have a point.. That's why I think it magnetized the lid to the rim thats concreted in the ground...

    But I'd like to see a good sized power lifter try it..

    No offence...there are guys that make me look weak and I can pic up full size overdrive automatic transmissions with little to no strain.. Then there's guys like the mountain..who dead lift 1000 lbs and have a beer lol
