Duct Tape, etc.

Useful Products
What is the most useful product that has been invented? I don't know for sure... but I have two favorites: WD40 and Duct Tape.

I don't know about you but I wouldn't be without either one. Check out the uses for both products at these links:

Do you have any interesting uses for these products? If so, send me an email. I've used duct tape for lots of different uses: a temporary bandage, to get lint or dog hairs off my clothes, etc.

Did you ever here Duct Tape referred to as Duck Tape. I learned that there is a brand of duct tape called Duck Tape. Check the company out here: Duck Products. It reminded me of a cartoon I saw once. I can't remember if it was Far Side or Close to Home. The cartoon was titled, "The Horrible Secret of Duck Tape". It showed a machine whose output was rolls of duck tape, but at the front end of the machine was a hopper where real ducks were going into the process.

Duck tape is really duct tape, and it has nothing to do with real ducks.

Look at these before and after pictures of a sofa. It was is pretty bad shape, but after covering it with Duct tape it looks pretty good. Ha!

Jokes of the Day

The was a farmer who raised watermelons. He was doing pretty well but he was disturbed by some local kids who would sneak into his watermelon patch at night and eat watermelons. . .

After some careful thought he came up with a clever idea that he thought would scare the kids away for sure. So he made up a sign and posted it in the field. The next day the kids showed up and they saw his sign: "Warning, one of the watermelons in this field has been injected with cyanide."

Well the kids were bright and not about to risk another watermelon. They ran off, made up their own sign and posted it next to the sign that the farmer made.

The next day the farmer showed up to look over the field and he noticed to his delight that no watermelons are missing. He was perplexed, however, by a sign next to his. He drove his tractor up to the sign which read: "Now there are two!"
