So my dad's cable stretchers do exist?

So they used a liquid metal alloy core to replace mercury that also happens to be toxic.

Oh and T1000 advanced prototype.

Sometimes, my conductive cables stretch to 8 times their original length under certain stimulation from your mother... Wait, what?

I read this article the other day and thought it sucked. Actually, I thought the wire sucked.

What i need for my headphone cords is a woven layer with zero stretch. You know, to protect the non- toxic copper inside.

I prefer Glass Fibre, less power drop than Copper and Gold. Although I still have to look at Redstone

Came here to mimetic polyalloy but that's already done, so the only question remaining does it endure stretching fap times or even fap2 times?

Oh yeah and I finished watching T2 just 5 minutes ago.

Yeah, guess what's next...
