  WHAT'S THAT STUFF? - SPANDEX
But today, spandex, better known as elastane in Europe and other parts of the world, is on the leading edge of fashion for both women's and men's under-, inner-, outer-, and active wear.
Spandex started a boom in the 1960s, ushering in an era of "comfortable, soft-support pantyhose and other intimate apparel." However, the fiber soon ended up in men's and women's figure-flattering swimwear and then hit the ski slopes in 1968 in the Lycra garments of the French Olympic ski team.
By the 1980s, Kirkwood says, spandex had a commanding presence in hosiery, and the fiber enlarged its presence among champion and amateur athletes who donned spandex garments to improve their performance if not their appearance.

 Textile Reference Manual: Spandex: The Revolution and the Return
Spandex also has a better resistance to dry heat and oil, in comparison to rubber, which helped to skyrocket its popularity when it was first introduced.
Spandex is being used in a continually widening array of clothing articles, including wovens and knits, and synthetics and natural fibers.
Spandex is often blended with suiting and dress fabrics, such as wool, silk, and rayon, to create a lighter, more flexible fabric that travels easily.

 Olympus MIC-D: Darkfield Gallery - Lycra Spandex
Also key in the production of spandex is the intermediary 4,4'-methylenedianiline (MDA) (13 carbons, 14 hydrogens, 2 nitrogens), which is classified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a hazardous chemical, capable of causing severe liver damage to exposed humans and animals.
Known as elastane in Europe, spandex is always blended with other natural and synthetic fibers such as cotton, wool, silk, and linen.
The future for spandex is uncorseted and it is expected to squeeze its way into the upholstery of stylish furniture and automobiles, as well-fitting bed linens, and blended with leather and synthetics for truly comfortable shoes that put a spring in your step.

 Heavy metal umlaut - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1997, parody newspaper The Onion published an article called "Ünited Stätes Toughens Image With Umlauts", about a congressional attempt to add umlauts to the name of the United States of America to make it seem "bad-assed and scary in a quasi-heavy metal manner".
