Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional.

Of course we all remember him in Jaws, but I really liked him in 52 Pickup.
Remember the scene in the desert, when his company blows up that enormous mess of stuff? That's exactly how they make metals that can't weld to each other bond, like aluminum and steel. We use bi-metal every days here. Basically, they take a mess of plastic explosive in pellets and lay a smooth layer under the two plates (which are clamped together). Then another mess of plastic, a boatload of sandbacks for tamping, then simply stand back, and twist the plunger. I heard we're talking a million pounds per square inch to do this little trick.
