Throwing metal things into an MRI

Not sure the story here, but they had an MRI hooked up to truss system and ratchet winch. Also note the amount of force on some of these objects... towards the end a metal chair wound up pulling at 2,000 lbs!

At one of the scanners over here they once had a gasflask fly in. Somebody got the wrong one, the ones they normally use aren't made from a metal that get's pulled in. This one got pulled in, bounced around and exited through the rear and got stuck in a window there. Pretty expensive fuckup.

I've been in a scanner for about 5 or 6 times for experiments. Have you ever been into one?
