Duct tape or fire? Answered

Recently at school there was an assignment in which we had to do a survey of 20 people.  The teacher came up with 10 Questions and we had to come up with 5.  Seeing that many people liked fire or duct tape, i asked which is better, fire or duct tape?  The typical answer was "that's an impossible question" or "flaming duct tape".  So which is better fire or duct tape?

***UPDATE MAY 5, 2011***  ok so the score so far is duct tape 9, fire 4, and flaming duct tape 1.  and ratings 2 c'mon people lets get some ratings.

that depends on your situation. if you need to have a way to scare off vicious wolves, fire. If you are fighting zombies, duct tape.

FUN FACT: Duct tape is actually one of the most unsafe things for holding air ducts together.

Both have their uses, but duct tape is more versatile. I've used it for everything from fixing a laundry basket to making a splint for a broken finger. Plus, duct tape now comes in an amazing rainbow of colors and patterns, including flames.

I'm relatively sure that it takes multiple forms of combustion to make duct tape. I can substitute several things for duct tape, but it is hard to find a substitute for fire. I think fire wins.

Fire wins hands-down on Googlefight.
Harry Hill has a way of deciding these things.

But I say, what use is a bit of sticky tape whose only possible use is fixing leaky ducts?

Normally, FIRE! But if it was a survival situation then Duct tape, because you can make fire quite easily. GMD

With fire you can stay warm and cook a meal. With duct tape you can make a bridge, boat, cannon, rope. You can also fix a totaled car, patch a hole in a boat, make a trap capable of holding a car. Duct tape wins for capability.

Was this a "what do you value most; creation or destruction?" question?

Duct tape.

I could probably make fire from scratch in a survival situation.  I couldn't make a roll of duct tape.
