Duct Tape Festival

06/18/2013 8:53 AM

How did we miss this? The 10th annual Duct Tape Festival was held last week. Did you attend? What's the craziest thing you've made of duct tape?

If I brought a big bucket of Goo Gone to the festival would I be a party pooper?

I used duct tape to hold a tarp down on my pickup. Once. I'll ever do that again. I spent a couple hours using Goo Gone to remove the tape residue with not much result. Frustrated, I tried a few other solvents and found that 70 percent isopropyl alcohol does a much better job.

Use the oil to make a blackened steak on the grill and the alcohol to stooth the mind.

This should have been an IHS GlobelSpec sponsered event.

I once knew a woman from Minnesota who made a duct tape bikini. Smokin' hot. She looked good in a bacon bikini too. Her beer cap bikini didn't turn out so well.
