Cold working a metal causes strengthening (I’m weak) by increasing the density of dislocations (Dislocations are flaws, but we’ll pretend they’re ‘character’) in the material.   It generally takes a lot of stress (My life is busy) to accomplish this, and the finished product has a different shape than when it started (I will be different.  Hopefully improved.).

That’s almost clever and sorta sappy.

In real life I’m a graduate student working on PhD in Material Science Engineering, which is a completely obscure field nobody knows about.  Think metallurgy.  I break things for a living, have two cats, and enjoy reading, doing triathlons, skiing, eating, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, camping, playing piano and trombone, cooking, etc…  I am a reformed Christian and rather involved in my tiny little church.

    I think your blog title is brilliant! (but then I’m a Mech Eng!) How did you get involved with the Eisenman Camp? This sounds like a really exciting event!
