It's interesting to note, Rob, that the movie "The Graduate" is now 46 years old itself. That character (whoever he was) was way ahead of his time.

Well, it seems to make sense to me, at least most of the time.

JimT, that's funny. He could also have said, or tried to say, "polyethylene terephthalate," but I bet a lot more than his lips and tongue would have gotten twisted, like his cheeks, face, mind, etc.

He could have said, "Son I've one word for you – Phthalates"  but your upper lip and tongue get twisted when you say that.

Glad Rich got a chance to see Miami Beach and all it has to offer, besides Plastics lectures.

Like Rob, I'm impressed that Rich remembers the name of that other actor. Plastics have been a big deal in medical and aerospace applications for quite a while, as DN has covered in the past. Thanks for telling us about some of these new products and uses.

Plastics in pharmaceuticals? What's most amazing, though, is that Rich knows the name of the actor who uttered the word "plastics" to Dustin Hoffman in The Graduate.
