    Have you ever...?

    Ask oddball questions to see if anyone else is as messed up as you...

    Have you ever used electrical or duct tape as a bandage?

    I used Duct Tape for a bandage once.

    Have you ever used duct tape for each of it's 16X10^4 uses?
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Yup - been on the road and had a major infraction hitting a mailbox due to a car pulling out and just kept swerving toward me (grrr). Owner of the house came out with widdo bandaids (I now carry a few sizes on me now - big to widdo) and we both looked at my bleeding leg and decided duct tape over paper towel was in order for me to get home ok.

    A buddy fails to negotiate rapids in his Kayak and loses his paddle.

    I'm in my canoe solo, so I have two paddles. My buddy "slim jim" has a spare to lend me. So we make a kayak paddle.

    doesn't sound like a bad idea, right along side krazy glue for deep cut wounds.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    yep - pretty leg , but you can keep the glue - used it a few times when I was on a bowling team - YEEEE-OOOOCHHIES! - worked but you didn't want to be near me for a few minutes - I think the werewolf in me came out, pretty much scared off the other teams too with the sudden tourettes as well.

    yeah, I gashed a finger when i was working on the car. It wasn't bad, just needed a quick fix, so I tore off a bit of a clean rag and held it in place w/ duct tape.

    Time Out!

    You answer the previous question, and then ask one of your own.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    atleast wait until it cools off a bit...geesh

    as for the OP....I have used duct tape as a bandage...One of the most useful uses was when a friend's speedplay pedal exploded off of the spindle (the pedal body was still clipped into her shoe) at about mile 20 of a Century ride. We used a tube and ducktape (have no idea why my friend had duct tape in his seat pack) and we tied/taped her foot completely to the pedal spindle. She rode the rest of the ride like that...needless to say, unclipping was an impossibility.

    No bandaids but a friend's daughter and her prom date won some good jingle in a Duck tape brand duct tape contest to fashion their apparel from nothing but duct tape.

    Yes I have. Well, not "duct tape" per se, but genuine theatrical gaffer's tape. For 99% of all potential applications it's better than duct tape, though I can't swear it makes any more effective a bandage.

    Has anyone ever burnt themself with a white hot chain just to know what it feels like to be burnt with a white hot chain? I did.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Can't say I've done that.

    Anyone ever run around the woods half-nekkid in the middle of the night?

    Yes, sometimes more than once in the same day.

    Super glue is better, but duct tape works.
