Learning By Looking: How Duct Tape Is Made

January 22, 2019

This is a video from Insider detailing the duct tape manufacturing process (which apparently starts with a penis-shaped glue mound), and what makes the tape so strong. SPOILER: Ducks. Lots and lots of ducks. "Did you even watch it?" I didn't need to.

Duct tapes were first invented by a female factory worker during World War II. They were originally called 'duck' tape because it was made out of a cotton duck fabric and it repelled water like a duck's back.

What did I tell you? "Not that." Similar though. "Not really." Call it a toss-up? "You were wrong." I've only been wrong once in my life and her name was Lydia. "Wait, what?" She ruined me.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks again to carey, who agrees that behind every decent repair job, there's at least a half roll of duct tape.

    So...the strength of duct tape is from the white sticky substance extracted from a giant peen?

    Sounds legit.

    So it really is duck tape..... the more you know. Hmmm I love it when slacking off at work gives me rather useless knowledge I can call on later for trivia games.

    The first frames of the gif look suspicious at first glance. Like a giant "one-eyed snake" making its way up the conveyor belt...

    Nothing to see here... Just a gigantic rubber cock.
