Duct tape:
Not an explosive, therefore it cannot be used as an explosive!
I'm not sure how microwave friendly it is
Has no nutritional value to speak of, therefore it can't be used as food.
Has horrible structural integrity, therefore it is a poor choice for an I-beam
It is unable to display video
It cannot drive screws
It cannot be used as legal tender (cash)
It cannot be used as a DVD
It cannot be used as a CD
It cannot keep time
It cannot play Doom
It cannot think for itself
It cannot be used to prove the existence of magical unicorns
It cannot be used to prove the existence of regular unicorns
It cannot be used to prove the existence of trolls
It cannot be used to prove the existence of elves
It cannot be used to prove the existence of other magical creatures
It cannot be used to pick up newsprint like Silly Putty
It cannot be used as a rubber band

According to mythbusters, it makes one very VERY shakey bridge :-)

But they still succeeded, and besides, I thought that bridge was kind of long for what they were doing.

A short bridge can be made with nearly anything, a longer one, is the proof of concept.

Especially dusty ducts (I wouldn't tape a DUCK with it either) ;-)

There's a difference between "making a duck" and taping over a feathered friend :-)

First you mean a duct tape duck.

And secondly, when you "stuff" an animal, you tend to leave most of the "support structure" intact so it stands on it's own. If you pluck it clean (eat it) you end up with bones only, and it will look more like dino-duck then the original :-)
