Another Piece Of Trivia,

for the weekend,

 take two plastic tubes, two ball bearings and two slugs of steel, drop the ball bearing in the tube and count how many times it bounces off the steel before coming to rest, I reckoned on about 6 or 7 bounces, but it was more like 4 or 5,

here we go again, but in the second tube the piece of steel has a sandwich of beryllium, copper, nickel, zirconium and titanium covering it, it is a liquid metal, which is a amorphous metal alloy,

so how many bounces this time? watch the video and count them, but you will have to count really quickly!
