It's a cheaper alternative.

No, it can't fix everything, but it still has upwards of 1 million uses at least according to those books you find in the mall.

As demonstrated brilliantly by Mr. Fred in a memorable radio show, duct tape can stick to everything EXCEPT THE FOUR BASIC ELEMENTS (Air, water, fire and earth)

Remember: If it can't be fixed with duct tape, twist ties, or a BFH, it can't be fixed

That's just toilet paper...

I did use duct tape to fix my car though.

It had rusted out around the gas cap so I had duct taped it back together. My drivers side door handle was also suffering from a little rust problem... which was easily fixed with duct tape. It was pretty sad. I couldn't lock the door because of the rust but you also couldn't open the door without playing with the entire door.

I seen some of that stuff on the wing of the 747 I was in. Before I knew it was 100 mile an hour tape I just thought someone used duct tape. And that made the entire flight a little scary

Duck (duct) tape is an essential requirment in any household - its currently holding my bed together.

Epoxy glue (Areldite) and epoxy putty are also very useful.


PS: I never understood people who put duct tape on their guitars - get some proper straplocks

Exactly. I hate duct taped guitars. Straplocks work great for me. I think it has something to do with trying to be "grungy".
