The first detection of the phonon spin [1, 2] in a magnetic insulator and observation ofits chiral behavior  in a semiconductor, have been made early this year. This bringsthe natural question: are chiral, spinful phonons naturally excited in pure metals and, ifso, how would they contribute to their electrical resistivities? In this talk, I presentevidence that this should be the case for the 3d ferromagnetic metals, and connect itsconsequence to a long-standing puzzle (dating back to the 50s) regarding the quantummechanicalexplanation of an anomaly observed in the electrical resistivity of iron,cobalt and nickel around liquid-helium temperatures. I propose a theory  which, withno fitting parameters, is able to explain the anomaly, with the extra gift of predicting theobserved spin-lattice relaxation times of these metals at room temperature. It rests on atype of correlated motion of the conduction electrons that I conjecture which, byinteraction with the angular-momentum reservoir provided by chiral phonons, allowsthem to find a channel for spin-flip transitions. Ideas relating this problem with theangulon theory including possible research avenues will be presented.
