They have HUGE electromagnets in their labs that can disrupt pacemakers and wipe credit cards @ 5ft. I bet some time a few centimetres from the electromagnets could do some damage to the data.

If you're not careful you could do some real damage to the
electromagnets. Just how fast would a drive hit the magnets once it gets
ripped from your hands?
