Pilot powers:magnet, run flat tire or both?..you be the judge.

Came home from a ride last night and look what awaited me...
Hmm not one but TWO foreign objects in my new rear tire..
funny thing was neither of them peirced through the inside of the tire. Both of the pieces went in at an angle. I thought the smaller of the two may of penetrated the inner carcass, but I did a pressure check between last night and this evening and it was only .5 lb off. I would think that would surely be due to a warmer tire temp from last night to tonight..weird.
the culprits...

the man of steel pilot power..

do I have anything to worry about here??

05 lime green. Sato slip-on, pc3usb, bmc race filter.

where'd ya get em from? I know cycle gear has a free return policy for flat tires...

I wouldn't worry about it though...

Kip: Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.
Pedro: Yes. I don't understand... they say you're not allowed to have pinatas that look like real people, but in Mexico, we do it all the time.
Pedro: Vote for me, and all your wildest dreams will come true.

I would be ok with it...HOWEVER I would check it with a bit of water or spit every time I got ready to ride
and look for some bubbles.
You sound like me....every time you ride check your tire presure with a guage and not with your hands
