|(I work in a Coffee Shop. I was on break in the lobby when a couple walks in. Directly behind them is a cute little boy in Batman costume.)|
|Me:||“Oh my God! It’s BATMAN!”|
|(The boy stops, strikes a pose and starts looking around menacingly. After a few seconds, he approaches the counter.)|
|Mother:||“Jeff, would you like a chocolate milk?”|
|Boy:||“I am not Jeff. I am The Batman.”|
|Mother:||“The Batman, would you like a chocolate milk?”|
|Boy:||“Yes. Yes, The Batman would.”|
|(The couple pays while the boy sits down with his chocolate milk. He keeps a stern look on his face as he sips the drink.)|
|Boy:||*sips* “Gotham is safe.”|
Before they were stars they were in 90s commercials
Can someone from the sciencey side of tumblr please explain this ?
This is called shape memory. It’s made from an alloy of titanium and nickel (I believe it’s called nitinol). It has the ability to “remember” the shape it’s taken.
When cold you can bend it whatever which way, but once you heat it (or in this case put it in what I presume is hot water) it will take the original shape.
