Default Re: Real-Life Weirdness

Not weird, but at least in the gaming-related category of "new materials with perhaps dubious popular reporting of properties" category: an alloy of titanium and gold that's said to be 3-4x harder than most steels, four times harder than pure titanium.

This one seems appealing to me not just as near-future tech for cyborg implants and street samurai, but also as technobabble for a fantasy game, justification for those awesome legendary weapons from ages past made with lost techniques, or armament for your cold-iron-shy fae warriors, for whom money is no object. Titanium is of course already a magic- or alchemy-invoking stretch for faux-medieval tech, but what could be better for DF than actually making your weapons out of gold? Maybe you can even make your After The End gold bugs happy if there's an actual in-setting reason the zombie-fighting warlords do want their non-edible shiny yellow luxury metal.
