After study a few of the blog posts in your web site now, and I actually like your means of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark web site listing and will probably be checking back soon. Pls check out my website online as properly and let me know what you think.
A few — issues — to consider (changing) …
Duct tape and duck tape are 2 different things. Duck tape was sought by the military (US) to stick and make a water tight seal making quick fixes on things like boats. Duct tape is, well, for air ducts. Somewhere it has become popular to call duck tape ‘duct tape’. You can’t do with duct tape what you can do with duck tape. Your article is about duck, not duct, tape.
David used a sling to kill Goliath, not a sling shot or what is commonly called a wrist rocket (which was a brand of sling shot as I understand). Your picture is of a sling shot, not a sling (an even simpler implement of … targeting & hitting something). Surely one could make either with duck tape, but I doubt they’d get far making the elastic tubing out of duck tape to make a sling shot … not to mention the 2 strings on a sling would probably not work very well made out of duck tape either (but long shoe laces or maybe some paracord would work).
Lastly, everyone knows you don’t make helmets out of duck tape — you make hats out of tin (aluminum) foil. Works for zombies, aliens, evil government satellites, and against getting dates with the opposite sex … duck tape helmets don’t do any of that. Dudh! 😉
