On the universality of duct tape

22.05.2010 16:36

Duct tape. You know, the type you use to tape together the laptop you just dropped. Its use is usually a sign of a quick hack job and the highest concentration of its users are in my experience at sites like Kiberpipa or the CCC congress in Berlin.

Well, it appears that it also sees some use in more serious fields. Here it's holding a flap trim tab on a little sport aircraft I've seen today at the local meeting of model and light aircraft pilots.

It really does seem there's nothing that can't be fixed with a piece of duct tape.
