It just isn't much good for taping ducts. 1001 other uses! Though personally I prefer gaffer's tape because it holds well and peels off with less residue.JRTomlin said:Fun list, but I'm devastated to hear that Duct Tape really isn't any good.

Oh...did I commit thread drift again? Sorry. Here:
"I think it's nice that Forbes magazine would bother to survey and list 100 great things about America, and I'm delighted that the Kindle is on the list."

Much as I love kindle, it does seem silly to rank tangible items along with services and systems of law.Elk said:Ahead of NASCAR?!
Overall the list is disturbing - these are things that are best about U.S.?
Very few items identified belong on any such list.
