Skull plates.
I've always wanted a tantalum body part (not in me you understand, just as an element sample). This is a really nice one: Two cranial repair plates in case I ever get a hole in my head, and six dozen tantalum screws to hold them in place. I asked my friend Max from England what he thought I should do with the screws and he suggested maybe I could put them in my first aid kit. "Stiff upper lip old chap, just screw the old brain back in now. Not to worry, it's just a flesh wound."
