In the March issue of Materials World, we write about nanotube-covered titanium that could be used as blood-repellent medical implants. This can be used as clot-resistant surgical implants, described by Dr Arun Kota as ‘the Holy Grail of the medical device industry.’

I’m reminded of a previous demonstration of tuneable superomniphobic surfaces from Kota back in 2014. Again working with titanium, the coating is able to trap certain low surface tension liquids on a variable scale. Also, it looks kinda cool.

You shout it out
But I can’t hear a word you say
I’m talking loud not saying much
I’m criticized but all your bullets ricochet

You shoot me down, but I get up

Wilford Warfstache was sitting on his bed, tears in his eyes. It was his fault Celine and Damien were gone. He’d killed his best friends.

I’m bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away

Will buried his face in his hands. How could he have shot his friends? How could he do that? A pink moustache couldn’t change who he really was…

You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium

He didn’t know what to do. A shaky hand was on his revolver, but he’d just come back, right? He’s just come back….

Cut me down
But it’s you who has further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I’m talking loud not saying much

Walking past his friend’s room, Dark heard crying and stopped. He knocked lightly on the door. “…Will?”

I’m bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium, I am titanium

There was no response, so he pushed the door open to see Wilford holding the gun, staring down the barrel. He sucked in a breath, running to his friend and taking the gun from him. “William, no.”

Stone-hard, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard, thus bulletproof glass

Will looked at him, tears in his eyes and running freely down his face. “I can’t do it anymore, Dark. I can’t.” 
Dark sat down and pulled the crying Wilford into a hug, which was rare for him, being someone who doesn’t like physical contact. “You have to, Will. For me.”

You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium

With a shaky breath, Will nodded. “A-Alright.”

I am titanium

Recent photos from the Queensland Cup in Australia where I got to profight against Astrid, who unnervingly giggles when she gets hits.
I beat her this time but with some more training, she’ll be a tank!
Also featuring my new green jupon that I made!
