nature or nurture

this has been debated for years in science
is it  the genes
is it social forces
that determines things

now i have been a big duct tape officiano
for a long time

i always thought it was social in its origin
over the years having seen it used on lots of things
of course ive used it on lots of things
my most proud use is this
duct tape chair
i have requested that i be buried
yes it leans back like a lounge chair
in this thing
after all thats my best position i find myself in the
is leaning back in my easy chair watching tv

so yes bury me in this thing
ill die happy knowing that will be final resting place

then there was this
my duct tape repaired wheelbarrow
i think ive added years to its life

then my cowgirl sisterinlaw sent me this picture
of duct tape used on horses
theres more and more of these pictures of things ive used
duct tape on
heck i once ran a long strip across the top of my solar panels
to keep my guneas from roosting on them at night
it worked
they didnt like duct tape stuck on their feet

i was thinking as i sat meditating in my garden
the other day
is the use of duct tape
nature or nurture

now i dont remember us using duct tape when i was a kid
this weekend i got my answer
when we visited my rainwater brother

there sitting on his kitchen cabinet was his coffee pot
heck i drank the coffee
it tasted good

however it did have a little bit of a duct tape flavor to it
the question was
is it the duct tape on the pot
this duct tape on the sink faucet

not sure which it was

now i must confess though
the duct tape is there until the new sink and faucets arrive to be
put into place

now i know

duct tape use
is it nature vs nurture

i think its nature
its genetic
is it just being cheap
