It's made of WHAT?!

I'm pretty sure that's a fictional material, isn't it? But as for the melted-down MGs, that seems like a good use for them! :devilgrin:

Well then. Pulling material names from mediocre movie.

Eh......TOO common place, who DOESN'T have 2-3 sets of those in their garage?? Now, my transparent aluminum ultralight rims....those you don't see everyday. I'd post a picture but they don't photograph well.

Come to think of it, <span style="text-decoration: underline"><span style="font-weight: bold">I</span></span> haven't seen the darn things since that nice Nigerian fellow loaded them in my car....darn things are transparent!!! I'd call him to help me look for them but he was headed to Canada for a family funeral and there is no cell reception or internet there.

Once common materials such as Bakelite and real copper toggle-switch contacts have, over the years, somehow <span style="font-style: italic">increased</span> their atomic weights and become Unobtanium.

...I think that pesky neutrino bombardment interacting with the human brain has much to do with it. :devilgrin:

Forms the dread governmentium which in turn converts all sorts of formerly common materials into unobtanium.

For some reason, the effect is particularly strong here in CA.

When I saw that in the movie I laughed. No one around me got the humor. I've been paying the price for that material for the Spitfires for years.
