    Anyone watch The Red Green Show on PBS? It's on Saturday nights. He can do amazing things with duct tape.

    As for duct tape, it's great isn't it? Post all of the crazy things you have done with duct tape.

    Check Red Green out here

    You've never heard of Red Green :confused:

    They even have a movie out!!! Duct Tape Forever!! It was hilarious!! In fact, this is the first movie I have ever bought a poster for.

    Seriously, the show is extremely funny, with a lot of subtle humor.

    i particularly liked the episode where they made a police car out of black tape, flashing lights and an electronic baby-doll that would make "siren" (crying) noises hooked up to a loudspeaker, the doll was under the gas pedal so it would sound whenever you sped up :D :D

    gotta love red green. altho for some it helps to be vicious drunk first...

    My boy scout troop used duct tape to hold together a trailer for a 250 mile trip home... The thing was completely patched up. We had to cut the trailer open. Somebody with a sense of humor wrote on the side: "Thank God For Duct Tape" Now we have a new trailer...

    I think some people working on my house used duct tape for the air conditioning ducts...

    that is, by far, the weirdest use for duct tape i've ever heard.

    [old joke]
    you know, duct tape is like The Force. it has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

    :D

    It's a Dec. 2001 rev B. "Cosmetic problems aren't covered by the warranty" says Apple.

    You'd think it would be, so that people wouldn't get a bad impression on their products when someone sees a PowerBook like that. Besides, aren Macs mainly cosmetic :p


    Wasn't there a contest where a couple could wear duct-tape outfits to their prom? I seem to remember that somewhere...

    I liked the episode where he makes a swamp buggy out of the old possum van. I couldn't stop laughing!

    On saturday, he made the possum van into a snow plow by stealing a mens bathroom door and duct taping it onto the front. He then shot several holes in the floor and put sand in the back so that it would sand the road. Great stuff.
