    This is a smart idea, although i believe it would hurt when you're taking it off? Am I wrong?

    I agree that it isnt the best for bandages but it would be perfect in an emergency.

    Duct tape can rip your skin off :S

    Might rip hair off but it's not that good of an adhesive. Superglue will.

    I know it seems like a really good idea because it stays better than any bandage tape, but using duct tape for bandages is actually dangerous because duct tape doesn't "breathe". I see it all the time at work where the cut or incision isn't healing or has become infected because of the use of duct tape. So yes, there is ONE THING that duct tape can't fix.
