My son inlaw attended a function where Red Green was appearing. He got 2 rolls of autographed Duct tape from him. His prized possessions. I have always wanted to hide one and leave a half roll in it`s place. I like and use dt but not that much.

Electric tape being better? Come on-it doesn't stand up to duct tape. First its not usually made for wide applications, it gets rubbery when exposed to heat, sun, shrinks under ice and cold, while duct tape holds up and stays sticky thru it all.

They likely used the green tape. I tried some for sealing survival kits, I have never seen anything as tough and sticky as that stuff, the aircraft mechanics used it for sealing fuel cells. Then I found out it cost 40 bucks a roll, I quietly put it back where I found it.

The virus doen't need to get air. It gets everything it needs from your blood.

Check here for a USA today article debunking the effectiveness of duct tape for removing warts. I know it didn't work for me.

Always keep a roll handy, never know when something needs some redneck repair to get you by. We used a similar, maybe it was duct tape, in Viet Nam to patch holes in the Huey, we called it 100MPH tape.

I recovered a stolen vehicle the other day that had its windshield duct-taped in place. Owner said the windshield had been popped out and was awaiting re-installation. Thief used duct tape to take care of the problem.
