Christine Everheart: That's a great line coming from the guy selling the sticks.

The entry you are changing the wording of is:
|Original entry||When Iron Man is creating his miniature arch reactor, he takes apart a missile's core. The kidnapped scientist asks him, "what is that?" Robert Downey says, ".15 grams of palanium. I need at least 1.60 grams. Why don't you start on the other 11?" .15 x 11 = 1.65. But he already has .15 from the first one he took apart. He only needs 10 more to have enough. 11 more would give him a total of 1.80 grams. With a particle as powerful as the movie makes it out to be, that could be the difference between blowing the crap out of yourself and a working product. Here we have someone who is supposed to be an engineering, mathematical genius, but he makes such a simple multiplication blunder. And in the next scene, after the arch reactor is built, the kidnapped scientist asks, "How much power could that generate?" Robert Downey states, "If my math is correct, and it always is..." Apparently not. [First, it's Palladium, not Palanium. Second, he could be asking the scientist to open up the other 11 cores in case one of the samples is unusable, for whatever reason. Besides, his wording, as you stated, was "at least 1.60 grams". That means he calculated that to be the bare minimum. He does not indicate that more is a problem. In fact, he specifically implies, by saying "at least" rather than "precisely", that more is NOT a problem at all.]|
