I have used the same compass at work for around 10 years. When I returned from Cube Day and went back to work it started to point South instead of North! Anybody have any idea why this should happen? I am certain that it never came in contact with any magnetic fields or anything that might affect it.

The Earth's magnetic field collapsed and reversed polarity. That's the only thing I can think of.

The governement started a complex experiment in the sewers of your home town and it disrupts the magnetic field around that area?

Or if you left it at your office or something maybe one of your colleagues decided to pull a prank on you and switched the needle or something. :)

Yeah... I think that's it. They thought (even being a compass) it was another exceptional puzzle mod, and they replaced it with a fake looking one LOL

I took it home with me (no office in my job) and it stayed inside a big bag of non electrical stuff. It was definately not interfered with. I have read that you can change them with magnets but I am confident none have been any where near it.[/list]
