    Default What can I use to cut this?

    I was at an extrication the other day and we came across a post that our cutter had a hard time putting a scratch in. It was on a new Mercedes SUV but I dont remember the model. When we looked closer, the metal was a greenish color. We talked to the local Mercedes dealer and he said it was probably a new alloy called Criptinyte that is being used. I've never heard of it, so I thought I would turn to all of the experts on the firehouse forums to see if you could help me identify this exotic steel, if anyone else has come across it or heard of it and who makes a tool that can cut it, because thats the one we need to buy- and fast! Please help!

    Criptinyte? Really? I think this guy was making fun of you. Kryptonite is the only material that can overcome Superman's strength. And guess what? It is green.

    Trouble is, kryptonite isn't real, and no spelling of criptinyte/ criptynite/whatever can be found by a Yahoo search.

    This guy was just being a jerk. They're probably still laughing at you.

    Or............

    Ok, now that I got that out of my system... I can't tell if this guy is real, or created this account for purpose of a joke. If it's real, PLEASE tell me how you even have internet access, yet they haven't invented to moving picture thing there yet. If it's a joke, thank you, it was hysterical.
