You Have To Hold Your Mouth Right

     "Made of high-tech carbon fiber" -- superkewl.

     "Woven from old pencil leads" -- not cool.

Eh, it's still just a pile of musty old quarks and electrons. When are they going to come up with something NEW?

I don't know if you ever watch the BBC show Top Gear, but Jeremy Clarkson has this funny mannerism. When he says the word "carbon fiber" he pauses ever so slightly and his voice takes on reverential quality -- the way you might talk to your friend 10 feet away, while visiting Notre Dame.

eg. The entire hood is made of [slight pause] carbon fiber.

Carbon fiber is OLD... The new is carbon nanotube... :-)

:) Ah, NFO, remember when "duraluminum" was the hottest hotness?

MeatAxe: y'know, now that you mention it...he *does* do that.

Remember when fibreglas was the hot ticket?
