Its not so much the horse humping that bugs me more as the lack of research into the material. I was just told on FJ that I'll be thanking Titanium when I get a hip replacement... I looked it up and as it turns out its just used as a holding stick and its not even a preferred material for the actual ball and socket joint which is made from ceramic (the ball) and a cup made out of polyethylene. So I put that guy in his place. They use stainless steel, Cobalt Chromium, or Titanium for the joint holders not the actual ball and socket joint.... And I want to say I can remember hearing that there were some early problems with titanium joint replacements, I'm not sure if it was the joint or the whole assembly (holding stick included) I couldn't say I don't really care enough to try and dig up the article to figure out what material it was or what the problem was.
