    What would you use your nuclear duct tape for? The coming zombie Apocalypse, of course!

    Taping armor plating to your car so the mohawked biker gangs have a harder time penetrating the sides of your wheeled death-machine with their crossbow bolts. Duh.

    And here I was going to mend the cracked & leaking nuclear bomb on Lost with my roll.

    I’m making a radiation proof suit so I don’t have to die when the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few (or one).

    I’ll believe it when I see it. Slap some duct tape on any piece of plywood…wait 1 hour…and then pull it off. You’ll usually pull fairly big chunks out of the wood. (Which is a huge problem if any moron on a film set decides to us duct tape or even gaffers tape on somebody’s walls.)

    Well, I use it for, uh, duct work. Specifically sealing my dust system in the shop (which, of course, is my backup nuclear fallout shelter filtering system, also good for filtering out the zombie virus).
