    Interesting looking back for sure. I checked posts by 3 or 4 of the first few posters. All that I checked have recently, one was today, posted, so it appears that some are still active. :cool:

    I can't believe they all thought it was really "Duct Tape."

    The first material called "duck tape" was long strips of plain cotton duck cloth used in making shoes stronger, for decoration on clothing, and for wrapping steel cables or electrical conductors to protect them from corrosion or wear

    It was called duck tape during the war because of its properties of repelling water.

    It was trademarked as DUCT tape by a guy who needed to make money. And when they used it in a grey color to wrap duct tape, that seemed to be one use for it.

    But it's DUCK TAPE.


    It can be called either, but some guy on the internet in the year 2000 basically asserts that anyone who doesn't call it what HE calls it, he must be superior.

    Man, now I'm not going to sleep tonight.
  9. I know embellisher is still around. He's a moderator.
