Nuclear power has a special kind of duct tape. I am not making that up. The adhesive is different so it's not corrosive to anything, pulls cleanly off any surface, and it is never grey. EVER. Usually it's red or yellow.

So don't think this is something you can just pick up. 3M 8979N is expensive. This is the bling of the tape world.

UsikFark: Actual duct tape can be cleanly removed from surfaces. It is expensive, like $20 a roll.


That is known as gaffer tape.

Waldo Pepper: shower_in_my_socks: Waldo Pepper: subby it is Duck Tape not duct tape

Duck Tape is just a brand of duct tape.

Using medical tape as a base, they applied two new technologies. Polycoat adhesives gave the tape its unshakable stick and polyethylene coating allowed them to laminate the tape to a cloth backing, making it extremely strong and flexible. The resulting tape was nicknamed"Duck Tape" for its ability to repel water

The brand that invented the stuff.


After the war the tape was put to the more civilian use of holding ducts together. So the product changed from a nameless army green tape to the familiar gray duct tape.

Thirty years later, Jack Kahl, former CEO of Manco, Inc., changed the name of the product to Duck Tape® and put 'Manco T. Duck' on the Duck Tape® logo, giving personality to a commodity product.

The next two sentences from the same article from the brand that invented the stuff.)

So it had a nickname "Duck Tape" and a product name "Duct Tape" and finally 30 years later, the Duck Tape brand came out.

So if you want to be really anal about it, then you are in fact incorrect. It was marketed as Duct Tape before Duck Tape.

mongbiohazard: Oh my! Those are some troubling allegations!

In an unprecedented crime against humanity, the Japanese government and the Obama administration have covered up the human lethality of the catastrophe.

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... WAT? Suddenly those troubling allegations don't seem quite as credible any more. Obama has jack and squat to do with the Fukushima nuclear disaster. So they lost me there.

The Obama administration has nothing to do with whatever the hell Japan is up to. Neither does our nuclear regulatory body, the NRC (our or voluntary regulatory body, INPO). Now I could see them throwing rocks at WANO, but claiming the USA is in a coverup with Japan?

The whole crisis was caused due to the company cutting corners on safety retrofits. 

It doesn't shock me that they're cutting corners cleaning up.

If the Japanese don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.
I'm pulling for you, we're all in this together.
