We were eating out when hubby and I were complaining about slow service and that the young kids behind us were being too loud and the booth was too small when 16 year old daughter said " I don't look forward to being an old grouchy person". Ouch!!

Pot metal, also known as monkey metal, white metal or die-cast zinc, is a slang term that refers to alloys that consist of inexpensive, low-melting point metals used to make fast, inexpensive castings.
never heard it called monkey metal.

That may have been magnesium. If you've ever seen a lawnmower(push mower)
with an aluminum deck, it's not aluminum it's magnesium.
The older model "Snapper" and "Toro" push mowers are
like this.
Magnesium is alittle harder, but lighter than aluminum.
