Things that surprised fivemack

Should I be more surprised that you can buy light-weight hiking mugs made out of titanium, or that there are two sellers on Amazon of mugs branded as 'titanium' with the first entry in their description reading 'made out of porcelain' ? 'Titanium' appears to be a marketing term meaning 'shiny and slightly brown'.

There appears to be a gap in the market for people who want cutlery made of titanium (because who would not want a titanium spoon?) which isn't irredeemably ugly.
