|Neil Lipson (10)|
Neil sold me one of the best samples in the whole table: An ELEVEN POUND cylinder of tungsten. And he gave me a good price on it (I think). Neil sells tungsten bars on eBay, and this link should look up any auctions he has going right now. Tungsten is the most dense element that you can buy in any reasonable quantity (it's about 100 times cheaper than gold, which is almost exactly the same density). I highly recommend that everyone have some to surprise people with. Neil has sold a total of over 20 pounds of it to my co-workers, aided by the fact that we all work forWolfram Research
(In case you don't get it, the symbol for tungsten is W, which stands for wolfram, the German name for tungsten.)
