If only duct tape could fix everything (…like this site!)

Have no fear Thess, I’ve heard your cries. You’re not going to have to be the only one posting luckluster content on fubar, I’m here to add some “flavour”. Of course…I have very little of said “flavour,” since I am a mere blip on the radar of late, slipping away from social places such as school and even my friends houses. I am becoming a hermit at the age of 17. So, I’ve forced myself to become rather creative and at the moment I am determined to make myself a purse out of duct tape.

When I was at Call the Office (local punk club area thingie), before I got kicked out for drinking (don’t ask), I saw some chicks from Beal (local artsy downtown highschool where EVERYONE worth talking with transfers eventually) with duct tape purses. Now, I heard through the grape vine that night that they’ll make you one for $15 and they’re cool with stars and such. I got kicked out before I could approach them and ask…Plus, I was busy getting myself invited to a halloween party by ex-student council member and hottie boy who is now in uni (thats entirely not the point, /end hormonal teenage girl rantings here). But I’m ingenious and will do it myself (the purse). I just want to look around only for instructions first. If I can’t find them, then well, I will play around. I already have made wristbands before out of duct tape, stickers, socks, and nail polish (exacto knives are fun! Erm, don’t run with them…)

I must say, I do have a duct tape affixiation. I have no idea really where it came from, but one day I suppose I woke up and decided duct tape was the single most ingeneous product manufactured on the face of this earth. In fact, they have a duct tape plant in this good old city I am living. Amazing, oui?

Anyway, I am a strange girl with nothing to post. I MISS JUSTIN. So, here is some pranks you can try with duct tape that I stole from here, shamelessly.

“Sometimes when you buy used videos from Blockbuster, they still have the little theft strip on them. So if you ever want to get someone good, just remove theft strip and duct tape it to the bottom of their shoe, then send him on a run to the video store.Works great! – Randy M.”

“Secure a 32 oz. soda cup to the top of your car with duct tape on the bottom of the cup. As if you had left it there by mistake, drive merrily along with the radio LOUD so you can’t hear the people yelling to get your drink off the car. When they point and wave, act like they are waving at you, smile and wave back. You would not believe the reactions to this in traffic. People will GET OUT OF THEIR VEHICLE and tap on the window to tell you about the cup! – Stan”

“Here is a fun (and safe) prank to pull on co-workers in an office setting. Most office dwellers have chairs that use a pneumatic piston to control the height. They are also designed to use a persons weight to effect the downward adjustment. While your coworkers are away from their desk, take a strip of duct tape and tape the height adjusting lever to the bottom of the seat. This effectively locks the piston into adjust mode. When they sit down, their weight will cause the chair to bottom out quickly. The looks of utter confusion are priceless. Extra points to brave individuals who pull this one on their boss. – John Callicotte”

Meh, I know this post was completely half-assed…sigh.

  12. Duct tape is like The Force. It has a light side, a dark side and it holds the universe together.

  19. Like 3 days ago, all the news channels were talking about a new use for duct tape. Medical research has shown that duct tape can be used for wart removal as well.

  20. Super. As though there wasn’t enough shame in buying Wart Remover Cream (or whatever it is), I can no longer walk into the local hardware store and buy a roll of duct tape without the cashier looking at me like I’m somehow diseased. Or maybe it’s her glass eye; fuck, I don’t know.
