Bigamous Duct Tape Slut
-- by Ian Rowe

I saw a yellow roll of duct tape
Just the other day;
It was shiny bright and cheerful
But I prefer you just the same.
Your silver skin is fine to me,
You've born the test of time.
Why would I want to have a roll
Colored like a lemon rind?

I saw some duct tape at the store
That was the color Blue
But for all its glamour and its style
It made me think of you.
Why doll you up in pretty things
When pretty things don't last?
If my life is a sailing ship
Then silver is its mast.

I used a bit of pink duct tape
Just the other day.
I didn't want to do it
But you see you were away.
The pink was kind of pretty
But not as nice as you
I hope you don't mind, tomorrow
I'll buy a roll of blue.

I believe that Troll is quoting part of "Duct Tape", by my neighbor Peter Krug, who also wrote "Woman with a Chainsaw" and "The Packrat Philosophy". The song describes many of the uses for duct tape mentioned here, and finishes the story of the singer's repair of a damaged interstellar vehicle, thus sending duct tape's fame to the stars

I was seventy miles up the Marrowijne River in Suriname, in a dugout canoe (yes, Catspaw, I had a paddle). The only boats on the water were dugout canoes like ours, made from hollowed out tree trunks, fifteen to thirty feet long. The bows were carved with a graceful upswept curve. The boatmen used intricately carved paddles with blades painted in bright, geometric figures.

Heavy and difficult to maneuver, the Djuka people could pilot these canoes through rapids that would give an experienced whitewater canoer pause. Each village along the river was fronted by a bare, muddy beach with a few canoes pulled up on shore. This was pretty remote country, no roads, no electricity, no touch with the central government, just a traditional culture living almost exactly as they had in the three centuries since they had originally settled there.

I was delighted that I had made it to a setting that was like "Green Mansions", on a jungle river, jaguars, macaws,I felt as though I had stepped into one of the National Geographic magazines I used to love to read, curled up on the window seat at home.

Somewhere in the middle of a reverie like that I noticed that one of the boats on shore had apparently smashed into a rock coming through a rapids a while back and the bow had been broken off. The repair had been made using, you guessed it, Duct Tape.

And the lamp cords frayed so badly you're afraid it's gonna fry,
There's no need for you to worry. You can fix it if you try

Love Red Green! The man is so warped...and yet...ya know, some of those things he builds look like they might work....

BTW, Mikal--back when I still had my little Aeronca Chief, I had a small hangar accident--scraped the fabric off the tip of one wing. My mechanic and I slapped some duct tape across it and I flew the next 50 hours that way--worked great. (Don't know about fighter planes, though--that might be kinda scary at those speeds! and yeah, I know they call it 100 MPH tape, but still....)

My hubby swears by Mentholatum to take the sticky residue off. Be aware: he says Vicks doesn't work nearly as well! This is a man who claims that "you never have enough clamps (or duct tape)" and has cartons of both in his workshop.

And my brother, the auto mechanic, has kept any number of family vehicles on the road with that gray shiny stuff.

Gee! I don't know how this is going to be received, but it is so funny to me I felt I had to pass it on.

My son knows next to nothing about Mudcats except wr're having guests. He is 22 years old and he and I have a very open, very free relationship. We're good friends. (Sometimes this is not great) All this in explanation of what is to follow.

My son recently broke up with a woman (she is 31) and he is feeling kind of low. His first real heartbreak. I asked him if he were going to start seeing other women again. He said he was going to start seeing lots of woman. I told him he better buy a lot of condoms. That he could buy them in a box of 20. He said he couldn't afford it (he supports himself), that he was going to get some aluminum foil and duct tape. He said that should last for a while.

I love him. annap

In the Canadian Army, it is called Gun Tape, and comes in an olice drab colour. Not actually used on guns, to my certain knowledge, but for almost everything else.

About ten years ago, the supply system made it available in black, brown, yellow, green blue and red. Very useful for all sorts of purposes, but purists wil still argue that it isn't proper gun tape.

Big differance between duct tape and gaffers tape. At least here.

duct tape, also called, 100 mile an hour tape = $1.98 roll, sticks to about everything, will pull paint from wall, and leaves glue all over the place, sticky nasty smears. The handymans friend. Also gets real ugly on the couch after about six months. It sort of slides all over. Yuck.

Gaffers tape = $12.50 a roll. Sticks reasonably well, but when pulled up, leaves no marks. Leave no messy glue behind.

So, how does the glue work in the UK? Big mess or clean? If it's clean and cheep, you got a good deal.

True story

I retired from the Air Force last Feb. My second-to-last assignment was in Korea. Shortly after I got there, I was required to go to a series of briefings, one of which was on war-time first aid. The guy giving the briefing sounded and looked like Jeff Foxworthy. (You Might Be a Redneck If...) He explained how you you used whatever was at hand and improvised - "And everybody has...duct tape!" Seems you can bandage somebody, splint anything, apply traction, stabilize a neck, put someone in anti-shock position, rig up a back board, create a litter (the thing you carry people on) or just use the roll for a pillow.

Once he got into it a ways, he'd start on treatment of the next injury. He'd ask "OK, anybody know how you can help a guy with a sucking chest wound?" and we'd all yell "Duct tape!" True, he did talk about other options, but he always came back to duct tape.

Fishy,

Boy, did you experience the worst of thread drift. Here's one of your requests.

Duct Tape Blues
by Joel Mabus

You say the world is going to pieces,
Things just fell apart,
You want to put things back together,
But you don't know where to start.
Well, I got your solution,
The stuff you need to use.
It's a thing called Duct Tape,
There ain't nothin' it can't do.

CHO:
I say the world is going to pieces,
What's a poor boy going to do?
I'm just holdin' things together.
Singin' the Duct Tape blues.

Duct Tape is the answer,
In a little silver roll.
It'll mend the wildest crack,
It can patch the deepest hole.
I put Duct Tape on my sneakers,
When they start to fall apart,
And since my baby left me,
I'm wearing Duct Tape on my heart. CHO:

Now, I'm goin' down to the Pentagon,
Gonna help my country out.
Tell them five star Generals,
What it's all about.
I'll show 'em my roll of Duct Tape,
And I'll explain what it can do.
I'll say it's only 99 thousand dollars,
This week's special just for you. CHO:

Sorry I took so long. I like this song, but it was not in my memory banks any longer. Finally found my file of old songs.

Enjoy the music.

There was a recent article here in Canada in the National Post about the gentleman who is attempting to perfect a grizzlie-proof suit. Apparently this suit has many other excellent qualities, as you can be shot at, run over by a truck, beaten with iron rods, etc. and come out smiling. The picture in the paper showed him being attacked with a chain saw, IIRC. There was a documentary made about him some time back, with one of his earlier suits. He tried to attract a grizzlie to attack him, but couldn't interest any.

Anyway, the article said that the inventor couldn't afford proper molded parts for certain critical parts of the suit, so he used massive amounts of duct tape. I can't remember the exact number, but it was something like 7000 feet of it. So duct tape, in sufficient quantity, will protect you against grizzlie bear attacks it seems.

It of course has many uses -- a friend of mine, in a Red Green moment, made a bird feeder out of an old pole, old pump parts, a plastic hood, a pie pan, and duct tape. Worked quite well. Personally I like to use it to seal packages, and think of the poor soul on the receiving end trying to get it open.:)

dear katlaf, The site name seems to be O.K. (http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html) -- there may be something in your cutting and pasting (this happens to me a lot in C&P). I just checked in to it,as I do every morning I am on this thing. It would be a pity of you missed today's picture (they also have back files) which I guarantee will stun you.

Yours, Peter T.
