You just never give up do you Astronut? However you do have a tendency to misquote.

Who said anything about breaking titanium atoms apart? Are you talking about nuclear fission Astronut?

It was actually Wikipedia which spoke of "Bond dissociation energy" while explaining what "Bond energy" was. I suggest you reread the quote carefully:

"Another example: an OH bond of a water molecule (HOH) has 493.4 kJ mol-1 of bond dissociation energy, and 424.4 kJ mol-1 is needed to cleave the remaining OH bond. The BOND ENERGY of the OH bonds in water is 458.9 kJ mol-1, which is the average of the values."
