out of this world duct tape


i am always on the look out for duct tape stories
people over the years have sent me examples of uses of duct tape
some even called me dr duct tape

one brand of duct tape is even called duck tape
i have been given a roll of it multiple times

i will admit though when i really really want to use the best duct tape
i go buy gorilla duct tape

this chair represents my proudest duct tape use
this old chair was either bought by my wife she 
more likely she found it on the side of the road
it could spin around and lay back
it was sort of like a mini barber chair
the covering was all wore out
i got the idea of using black duct tape the good stuff like gorilla duct tape
i lost count of how many rolls i used on it
when completed i commonly sat in it to relax or read or visit with my wife she while she was in the kitchen

it was a favorite of ms b when she came to visit
she would spin around and around in it like a mary go round

one of the hard parts of moving was leaving this duct tape chair 
we gifted it to a friend who appreciated its worth

when we decided to move we agreed we would only take what would fit in our two cars
everything else would be donated or sold
the duct tape chair wouldnt fit in our cars

you can do a search to the right of my blog for duct tape to read more duct tape stories
just google organicgreendoctor duct tape

the roll above in that picture is the one featured in the video below
its the one that went into outer space with the astronauts

in the video below you can see how he uses it by dispensing it from the special duct tape dispenser invented by us high school students

the duct tape is used frequently on the space craft
if you tear off a piece of tape you cant just set the roll down somewhere
it will simply flot away in the weightlessness of outer space

the use of the us high school invented tape dispenser
the dispenser latches back onto the side of the wall when its not needed


duct tape has been used for years in space by nasa
the big problem was the duct tape roll floating away
the high schoolers solved that problem
here is a link to an article about the space duct tape problem

i still think though that my favorite duct tape use is my duct tape chair
