Photosynthesis isn’t really an invention though
Yeah right, the trees just sort of thought of it!
Haven’t you lot heard of God? He was inventing stuff before you lot were even in existence. In fact, it was a slight cock up in his shed (the Big Bang) that led you your creation…
… and before you start whining about religion and proof, I have proof. His shed was blown apart in the Big Bang, correct? There has been no sightings of this shed since. If that is not proof then I don’t know what is!Posted 8 years agoDaveRamboSubscriber
+1 for Sugru.
I can’t help but look at things with a view to improving them.
Replacing rubber plugs with Sugru on front mud guard to make it fit better
Adding Sugru ‘wings’ to iphone charger plug as to make it easier to remove from wall
Making bottom of a mixing bowl ‘grippy’ with a thin roll of Sugru.

A pair of these arrived yesterday and have quickly moved to the top of my “favourite tools” list…
It’s a set of pliers for opening stubborn Powerlinks btw.
Didn’t they do a poll of scientists at the end of the millennium and they voted the bikini as the greatest invention of the 20th century. I’m with them anyway.Posted 8 years agotoys19Member
I remain convinced that this is the result of a very smart bit of marketing capitalising on the misheardPosted 8 years ago
lyricsbrand names phenomenon. So clever that on their packet it says something like “the original duck tape now available blah blah”. They can rewrite knowledge with advertising, user acceptance and wikipedia you know…CougarSubscriber
Nice unbiased website you’ve found there.
Duck / duct is another “we don’t really know” etymology. These days “Duck Tape” is a brand name and “duct tape” is generic (see also, Sellotape). As I’m not American, I’ll stick with the generic terminology I think.Posted 8 years ago

Sounds to me that the stuff was invented in WWII, it kept water out of things, operated when wet, much like a duck, and unlike a duct. Then some clever fella decided to capitalise on the fact that duck tape was and unregistered name and so set up company making duck tape and called his company Duck. Probably a bit like Jeep, which despite uncertain origins came to mean a certain type of vehicle, not one manufactured by the Jeep company, in fact one manufactured by Willys. And incidentally, willy as a name for the male member was in use before the the Willys company started manufacturing them etc.. etc..Posted 8 years ago
