DUCK TAPE contest? Answered

OK so I know that a least all of us have used DUCK TAPE? And I know there are many different things you can make with DUCK TAPE. SO I was thinking that it would be a cool idea if there was a DUCK TAPE CONTEST!! And the entries would have to be a object made of ALL DUCK TAPE (100% DUCK TAPE)and could not be something repaired using DUCK TAPE. PLEASE comment back and tell me what you think and if would make a great contest.

I also made a airsoft pistol holster out of duct tape. i put duct tape around it by covering the pistol with duct tape (sticky side out) and then covering it in black duct tape

Nope. Duct tape is the name for a waterproof, vinyl adhesive tape. Duck Tape is the brand name for a tape of this type that is specifically manufactured by Duck Products, a division of Henkel Consumer Adhesives.

http://ask.yahoo.com/20051019.htmlOk i know you are right but i found this on the internet.

Duct tape was originally manufactured for the U.S. military during World War II by the Johnson & Johnson Permacel division, to prevent water from seeping into ammunition boxes. Because "water rolled off it like a duck" (it was waterproof) and because it was made using "cotton duck" (similar to the material in cloth medical tapes), the new invention was originally called "duck tape." In the booming postwar era, its versatility made it a standard component of any handyman's toolkit; however, its most high-profile use was connecting heating and air conditioning ducts. Thus, "duck tape" became "duct tape." Ironically, the tape is now considered ineffective for ductwork and banned by most building codes.

Aye...There are two different stories...the other is that it was originally developed to repair ducts, thus "duct" tape. There are older references for duct, so I'm inclined to believe it.
