It has to happen sometime.

It has to happen sometime. The poles have changed dramatically in the past. Further, the magnetic zones do vary quite a bit, even year by year. That's why we don't use magnetic north (for anything more than vague directions). We use true north. In most places, you must adjust for magnetic north's drift while using a compass.
