Iron Man

Yesterday in my Physics seminar class, a guest speaker was up front talking about Materials Science.  She was showing a slide on iron and its properties.  "Now when I was doing image searches for iron," she began, "the only pictures I could find were of Iron Man.  I don’t even know…is he actually made of iron?"

Out of the back of the otherwise-dead room, a kid chimes up, "Actually, it’s a gold-titanium alloy painted hot-rod red."

Nerds are awesome.
