Forbes Magazine names duct tape "The Other Greatest Tool Ever"

No fighter takes the field without it. No homeowner dares to approach a project unless a roll is in the toolbox. Forbes Magazine's panel of scientists and engineers found what the SCA already knew: duct tape holds the world together.

Originally developed in World War II for the military, duct tape soon found civilian uses as well, and now is used in everything from fashion to medicine.

The old saying goes, "You only need two tools: WD40™ (a lubricant spray) to make things go, and duct tape to make things stop!"
