Adhesive tape (specifically masking tape) was invented in the 1920's by Richard Drew of Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing, Co. (3M). Duct tape (the WWII military version) was first created and manufactured in 1942 (approximate date) by the Johnson and Johnson Permacel Division. Its closest predecessor was medical tape.

The original use was to keep moisture out of the ammunition cases. Because it was waterproof, people referred to the tape as "Duck Tape." Also, the tape was made using cotton duck - similar to what was used in their cloth medical tapes. Military personnel quickly discovered that the tape was very versatile and used it to fix their guns, jeeps, aircraft, etc. After the war, the tape was used in the booming housing industry to connect heating and air conditioning duct work together.

Soon, the color was changed from Army green to silver to match the ductwork and people started to refer to duck tape as "Duct Tape." Things changed during the 1970s, when the partners at Manco, Inc. placed rolls of duct tape in shrink wrap, making it easier for retailers to stack the sticky rolls. Different grades and colors of duct tape weren´t far behind. Soon, duct tape became the most versatile tool in the household.

1. I'm currently in a thrash metal band called Genital Grinder.

2. My former band Ducks Entertainment had a photoshoot and was featured in Pulp Magazine (nov 07 issue). We had to dress like cavemen. I know it was cool and all to be in a mag but come on....cavemen? :crazy:

3. I'm right handed at the basics (writing, holding a spoon, normal stuff) but i'm left handed when shooting pool.

I will guess, by the time Avatar finish showing around the world, it will be bigger than Titanic.
