Duct tape sightings galore! It is becoming apparent that duct tape is holding the Olympics together. Just last night during the women's figure skating finals one of the coaches (Russian?) was holding a roll of duct tape (for no apparent reason) while sitting on the bench waiting for the scores to appear. Chris Klug the snowboard king fixed his binding with it and went on to win bronze. The guy on the left is a Czech who won gold in the men's aerial ski jump competition (obviously with the help of duct tape). And then there's our friend Leo from Erie, PA who was an Olympic torch bearer (with the torch duct taped into his hand). The list goes on… Click the banner above - it's inspiring!

At the Superbowl (having absolutely NOTHING to do with Duct Tape)

A guy named Joe receives a free ticket to the Super Bowl from his company.
Unfortunately, when Joe arrives at the stadium, he realizes the seat is in the last row in the corner of the stadium. He's closer to the Goodyear Blimp than he is to the field. About halfway through the first quarter, Joe sees through his binoculars an empty seat 10 rows off the field, right on the 50 yard line. He decides to take a chance and makes his way through the stadium and around security guards to the empty seat. As he sits down, Joe asks the gentleman sitting next to him, "Excuse me, is anyone sitting here?"
The man says no. Now, very excited to be in such a great seat for the game, Joe again inquires of the man next to him, "This is incredible! Who in their right mind would have a seat like this at the Super Bowl and not use it?"
The man replies, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we haven't been together at since we got married in 1967."
"Well, that's really sad," said Joe, "but still, you couldn't find anyone to take the seat? A friend or close relative?
" "No," the man replies, "they're all at the funeral."

People have been sending us duct tape vehicle repair photos for a long time and we finally decided to do something about it. We’ve created a page(s) dedicated solely to duct tape vehicle repair. If you have a vehicle (or know of one) that is being held together with duct tape, snap a photo of it and send it to us.

Meet us at The Diner. We’ve had some great stories over the counter at the Duct Tape Diner recently. If you haven’t yet read the Diner contributions, stop by! This is where we invite our visitors to share their own duct tape stories. Just like these people did:

A bad use of duct tape… “I was actually tied up and gagged at gunpoint with duct tape over 10 years ago. The stunner came when I told a friend and he said, "When it happened to me..." And, my uncle taped the tip of his thumb back on with duct tape rather than spend money going to the hospital. It grew back. Also, a plumber I know thought he ordered a gross of duct tape (144 rolls). What arrived was a gross of cases of 144 duct tape rolls. He kept them and they were all used.” --- J. W.

Cat control To keep your cats OFF of the tables & counters at night (they think you don't know), Spread strips of duct tape, sticky side UP, everywhere you suspect they are jumping up. In the morning you will see the results! And, It's fun listening to them jump all over the kitchen, trying to free themselves of the tape! --- Tom C.
