Why don't planets crash into each other?

I'm not an astronomical genius but I think I have found a valid reason to why planets don't collide into each other. I found the reason to be true while messing around with some magnets. Anyway here it is; all planets have two magnetic poles, North and South. I observed with my magnets that if one hung from a bar, and the same pole got close enough to the hanging magnet, that the hung one would actually swing in a circular movement around the other one. I use this same observation to prove that planets can -in a way- be sandwiched in between each other due to their distance and same poles repelling each other. But if say Earth had N pole up, and Mars had S pole up, we would hav a collision that would end in Red-Home-Planet.
Oh, and since Pluto has been down-graded to a planetoid, it is no longer considered to be a planet.
