Lorin Thwaits A geek says what?

People have been doing fascinating things with duct tape for a little over 60 years.  Did you know, for instance, that it can cure warts?

Perhaps more interesting, each year the Duck company has a competition called “Stuck at Prom” where creative High Schoolers can land scholarship money for the most creative Prom dress or Tuxedo created from the sticky stuff.  My friend Laura Turley decided to enter:

This is 100% duct tape, not just tape covering a jacket or dress.  If you like what you see then you can vote for their entry, #3087.

Perhaps this has inspired you to create something interesting using the miracle adhesive.  If so then here's a Wiki that can get you started.

Window blinds makes it more convenient for bamboo roman blind. As I delved deeply into fabric blinds, I found this to be quite interesting. It is world wide. It's important to acknowledge the dilemma of blinds and drapery, cause it certainly won't be going away any time soon. But there's a bigger issue here. I've been powerless in that area up until now. This article is going to cover a couple of areas where roller shades can lead to serious trouble. I can't say for certain if it will make a huge difference but this certainly can't hurt.

That's great. If you like eating out, these are some great gift cards for McDonald's and Burger King.
I tried them and they really work.

This is hot if you like eating fast food sometimes. Although I don't recommend eating out a lot but you can still
share them with family members and friends. You can get some free coupons for McDonalds and
Burger King.
