    I'm really liking this more than steel. Not sure what to do with the new thing though. Probably just have it.

    my ortho surgeon saw the cane and was surprised at how heavy it is. i explained the difference between billet and surgical Ti. Everyone is surprised at how heavy it is; makes a great thump noise on subway car floors.

    yeah i have to lean on the cane when i use stairs now. the tubular aluminum ones bend so i went on the net looking for a stronger cane that wouldn't weigh a ton to carry. titanium will not bend or flex and its not as heavy as iron or brass.

    here they confiscate them if you have them on the street, but paperweights and metal art are ok. i have lots of metal art items.

    those things are tubular aluminum. my left knee is not strong enough to climb stairs alone yet so i need something to push down on. the tubes bend from that. That tubular stuff is not weight bearing.

    @garypagetwo would have hit you twice in the jaw and thrice in the gut before you could even swing that at him.

    if i stumbled in on him when he wasn't servicing some wheelchair-bound geriatric dick, maybe, but what are the odds of us meeting the 10 minutes of the day that he is between johns?
