The "Kyle is wrong!" FAQ

1. I know that Uru is the metal in question in the comics AND I know that everywhere other than Ragnarok says "in" a dying star not "from." But like I said in the video, I'm just using Thor's words in this film, because this is the film where it shatters, and it lets us talk about awesome physics!
