Since we have a lot of idiots here who like to speak out of their ass, let me clarify this:    
This is neither a railgun or a gauss/coil gun. This here is just a kid playing with magnets.    
   
A railgun uses the push generated by opposing magnetic fields being generated behind it as current passes through the rails an projectile to constantly and smoothly accelerate the projectile.    
A gauss/coil gun uses the magnetic pull exerted on a ferromagnetic projectile when current passes through a coil in front of it to accelerate it explosively in one or more stages.    
This is just some idiot discovering that the ball at the end of the chain has less force exerted on it by the magnet than one that is directly touching it.    
   
prayingmantis, please sticky this so that we won't have to suffer any more ignorance being spread.   
If the image breaks one more time, I'll just put in on Dropbox and reply with the link...

I'm really into science, and we may not be ale to say Avada kedavra and shoot green light, but chemistry and physics is just about as close to magic as you get. Example: alchemy is real, we can make gold.
