fusillade762: That must be what Hollywood bullets are made out of.
Billy Bathsalt: I was just grinding some stainless steel, which TFA says is the normal club material, and it didn't make many sparks.
namegoeshere: Also don't lose your temper and smash one over a bench. There was a guy here years ago who did just that. It broke and the jagged edge bounced back, hit him in the heart, and killed him right there on the sixth hole.
balisane: Aren't those campsite/emergency fire striker doodads made of a titanium and/or magnesium alloy?
TomD9938: FTA :Concialdi said the Fire Authority is giving golfers using titanium clubs permission to break the rules and "improve their lie" -- that is, to move their ball away from rocks and dry vegetation.No thanks. A little environmental impact is a small price to pay for me to be able to play the right way.It is a gentleman's game, after all.
Russ1642: balisane: Aren't those campsite/emergency fire striker doodads made of a titanium and/or magnesium alloy?Nope. Iron Cerium alloys.
Bill_Wick's_Friend: The same thing can happen with your golf shoes if you're not careful
LoneVVolf: Scientists painstakingly re-created in the lab the course conditions on the days of the fires. Using high-speed cameras and electron microscopes, they found that if hit upon a rock, clubs containing titanium can produce sparks of up to 3,000 degrees that will burn for more than a second, said James Earthman, a chemical engineering and materials science professor and an author of the study.WTF did they need electron microscopes for? And how are they determining what the titanium would do under one when they have to completely coat it with gold to see it in the EM?
KidneyStone: I've never met a golfer that didn't have a built-in fire extinguisher that wasn't fully charged, so to speak, by the third tee.
AbiNormal: I'll be happy when they set golfers on fire.
skinink: The course, the course, the course is on fire. We don't need no water let the motherfarking golfers burn. Burn motherfarkers, burn!
The Bunyip: Check me if I'm wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers, they're gonna lock me up and throw away the key...
Obscure Login: [img.fark.net image 720x496]Oh golly, I'm hot today.
Russ1642: Cave men knew that bashing certain rocks together creates sparks that can start fires.
fatalvenom: Billy Bathsalt: I was just grinding some stainless steel, which TFA says is the normal club material, and it didn't make many sparks.You must be doing it wrong, because I cut and grind stainless on a daily basis... That shiat throws a lot of sparks.
HairyNevus: Russ1642: balisane: Aren't those campsite/emergency fire striker doodads made of a titanium and/or magnesium alloy?Nope. Iron Cerium alloys.There's definitely some that contain magnesium.
doglover: Russ1642: balisane: Aren't those campsite/emergency fire striker doodads made of a titanium and/or magnesium alloy?Nope. Iron Cerium alloys.Iron Cerium sounds like a body builder.
