S.W.I.M. wants the very controversial spherical magnets...

Someone who isn't me is having the shadow of a potential desire to trade digital numbers for those very controversial spherical magnets that have been deemed as dangerous to human life of all ages as firearms or nuclear bombs. This person asked a person to ask me to ask on a forum what would be a reliable website to potentially make this shadow of a potential desire reality.

(I'm looking for buckyballs, what's a reliable website to buy them?)

I believe DX.com and a bunch of other Chinese websites sell them.

China will sell you anything regardless of legality.

I already have a set of 5mm neocube spheres. Kids in the family visited 2 days straight and ended up losing one. Then they came back yesterday and lost 7 of them. Ugh.

When I looked on DX yesterday, I searched them under the name "neocube" and the only thing I found were 3mm balls or 5mm balls with colored coating which ends up coming off. It didn't occur to me to search for "buckyballs" even though I used this term in this thread. Derp. I was probably too tired from being with the kids.

The kids aren't going to touch my balls ever again, especially now that I know the reason why they were banned in several countries.

Amusingly... my mom and the kids were playing with my balls the other day (*snort*). And while they were putting them on their earlobes as fake earrings, she is the one who had the not so brilliant idea of trying one on as a fake piercing in her lip. I told her not to do that because she could accidentally swallow one. While I find the ban on the sale of buckyballs to people of all ages to be stupid, part of me can't help thinking that some people might be too stupid at any age to play with them. Kind of like lasers.

I'd say that's probably most countries.
Also you're on a list now. Me too for quoting you.

Are they actually illegal to import?
I was under the impression you just can't sell them here.

I'm not sure TBH. It'd be strange to disallow sales here but allow imports.
