The lovely lexicon

This morning I was so charmed by the use of "metallurgical," and so delighted to learn that "embrittlement" is a word, and so certain that the term "cold rolling" is soon going to appear in a hip-hop song that has nothing whatever to do with structural engineering, that I might have neglected to heed the actual point of the discussion.

To wit: the bolts on the Bay Bridge may all break some day and send us hurtling to our doom.

Oh.
