IF YOU COULD INVENT ANYTHING YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

WHAT IS THE MOST RANDOM THING YOU HAVE RESEARCHED FOR WRITING?

What weapons-grade plutonium looks like. Turns out it's shaped like a hockey puck and that offered a nice little metaphor for my novel. I also recently looked up David Tennant's hairstyling methods and it was quite the rabbit hole. I now feel I understand him better as a person and an actor.
