    I've started a thread in Fan Fiction about the almighty Duct Tape. Just thought I would let you know. But now that's there's a thread here for Duct Tape, you can talk about it here too. Anybody who couldn't live without it, please stop by and say hi. Even if you hardly use it, you should stop by to help sing its praises.

    Any good mechanic knows, if you can't fix it with duct tape, it ain't worth fixing.

    Ahhh, duct tape! The handyman's secret weapon! Some day soon I expect my car to be held together by little else but duct tape.

    Not all of you may know the full quote: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it, but if it is broke, you can fix it with Duct Tape."

    Half of my old car was held together by duct tape, the other half by RTV. Come to think of it, most of the panels on my old plane were held together by RTV, too.

    If you can't fix it, duct it.

    MacGyver once made a plane out of Duct Tape, some bamboo and some plastic bags. Oh, yeah, and a fan for the propeller. But the duct tape is what made it work.

    Oops, double post. I'll just praise Duct Tape some more. The almighty Duct Tape. Oh, what a wonderful thing. I don't know how I could live without you. I'm glad I don't have to. You make my life complete.

    MacGyver was so cool that he didn't even need duct tape all the time. He could make a bomb out of chewing gum and a paper clip if he had to.

    Did you ever see Jackie Chan's Rumble in the Bronx (I think this is the right one). Anyway, there was one where he cut open the airbag underneath a hovercraft, and then needed it to catch the bad guys, so they used duct tape to patch the rips!

    I wonder if MacGyver ever accidently blew himself up. That'd be funny. Ha, ha, that would be funny. Anywho, duct tape is the sole tool of the south.

    No, he's way too cool for that. Besides, he always had the almighty duct tape to protect him.

    I was about to go to bed and then I realized I had 99 posts. I thought I would take a few seconds to make my hundredth post tonight. I dedicate it to Duct Tape. The greastest thing in the universe.

    Little known to the non-Star Wars fan, the giant Mon Calamari Cruiser was originally a big fish. After several years of 'duct-ing' on its 'hull', the ship greww in size as layer after layer of the might duct tape covered every scale of the fish. Thus, Home One was built...

    Duct tape is like the Force. It has a dark side, a light side and it holds the universe together...

    All hail the mighty Duct Tape!!!

    I have a roll in my bookbag, computer area (comes in handy for keeping all of those cables together), my bedroom, and God only knows where else. I even fixed a hole in the pocket of one of my pairs of jeans with it. One of humanity's better inventions.

    Hope you took the duct tape off before you washed the jeans! I didn't one time and the consequences weren't pretty.
    I once made a bookshelf for my dorm with a bunch of milk crates and a roll of duct tape. I suspended in mid-air from the back of my roomate's book shelf. Oh, the essence of tacky!

    Duct Tape has got to be the greatest discovery by humanity. I know that if there are really aliens out there, and they come looking for us to kick our butts, they could never win, for we have Duct Tape. And who needs to learn to sew if you have duct tape? All holes can be patched with the almighty duct tape. And women don't have to worry about having a grey spot where there was once a hole in their colorful dress, you can get duct tape in different colors.

    Velcro, velcro.
    I would have been velcro but I couldn't get it to stick to my skin.
    Duct tape is soooo much easier to use for a costume
