where can i purchase neodymium magnets, like a store because i prefer not to order stuff off the internet.
From God himself.

If that doesn't work, try an industrial construction retailer.
Something to do when you get one. Get a tube that isn't much bigger than the magnet that's made from aluminium, or any metal that isn't magnetic. Drop the magnet down the tube. If it's about a metre long, then it'll take about 20-30 seconds to reach the bottom. It's really cool. Don't know where to get them though. You'd probably have to try the net.
