Religiously changing Your light bulbs...
How many people to change a light bulb?
Charismatics: Only one. Hands already in the air.
Pentecostals: Ten. One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.
Presbyterians: None. Lights will go on and off at predestined times.
Roman Catholic: None. Candles only.
Baptists: At least 15. One to change the light bulb, and three committees to approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad.
Episcopalians: Three. One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks and one to talk about how
much better the old one was.
Mormons: Five. One man to change the bulb, and four wives to tell him how to do it.
Unitarians: We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.
Methodists: Undetermined. Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Church-wide lighting service is planned for Sunday. Bring bulb of your choice and a covered dish.
Nazarene: Six. One woman to replace the bulb while five men review church lighting policy.
Lutherans: None. Lutherans don't believe in change.
Amish: What's a light bulb?

We've been hearing a lot about the Lawrence Berkeley Lab study that says duct tape is no good on duct work. While that study doesn't bother us (we've written five books and eight Page-A-Day® Calendars about duct tape and don't mention duct work once), we thought you may want to become acquainted with this controversial study. You could print it out and use it as kindling for your next bonfire. Click here to read the study.

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:

Camper's Constant Companion I was camping up in the mountains with my step-dad. We decided to go for a walk around the lake with our dog. As we hit a patch of tall grass, my step-dad and I took different routes. The grass was so tall that I was unable to see a knee-deep puddle of water that was directly in front of me, needless to say, I fell in, soaking my shoes. By the time I reached camp my feet had many blisters and my shoes were still soaked. Not wanting to walk around in wet shoes, I took a pair of socks, and my good friend, Duct Tape, and started making a new pair of shoes. The rest of the trip was fine, my shoes didn't dry out, but I didn't care because the Duct Tape shoes worked just as well if not better!
I have also used duct tape to combine tarps to make canopies while camping, fix interiors, notebooks, backpacks, inflata-boats, fishing poles, and everything else. Simply put: Duct Tape fixes EVERYTHING! (Even broken hearts, I gave my girlfriend a bouquet of duct tape flowers, she loved them!) --- Brandon H.- Salem, Oregon

Avoiding Germs You can easily use duct tape to pick up those used tissues your kids leave around during cold season without getting your hands dirty. --- Mike P.


Real Life Flight Announcements:
"In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child pick your favorite."
