Attention avatar fans.
As someone who studied materials science, I finally figured out a way to make Bryke’s platinum-exception work: Bryan has really bad handwriting, and when he wrote “titanium” Mike read it as “platinum.” But the type they got to the recording studio, the damage was done.
So. There you have it. In the avatar-verse, the words “platinum” and “titanium” are switched. And yes, that makes palladium really confusing.
