No. Just say no to magnetic duct tape. No no no.

The text actually tells people to stick it on their photographs. Just imagine the magnet shaped dents when they are all stuck together at the bottom of a shoebox 50 years from now.  I don’t even want to talk about the adhesive.

Shudder.

I thought we were making progress.  I thought the message was out and that the evils of tape were fully known.

I feel vanquished.  I need my tape avenger cape.

I’m starting to fear that you have some latent tape-anger issues. Perhaps some repressed memories of a beloved book of nursery rhymes covered with electrical tape?

Yes, Kevin. You have discovered my secret. My superpowers and hatred of my nemesis evolved from a childhood tape accident from which I narrowly escaped. I cannot speak of it – only persevere. 🙂

I just sent you a package sealed with magnetic duct tape (wholly unaware of this blog post). By the time I got the package to the post office, the tape was falling off thanks to swamp Florida heat. Don’t worry: I sent it via media mail so that we can see how the tape wears through an accelerated aging process.

I can’t wait to see what is stuck to it by the time it gets here! Thanks!

Well, I just got the book. The tape was still stuck to the package as intended, but I was disappointed to find that the magnetic aspect did not assist the package in acquiring random metallic riders. It arrived solo. Cool book, by the way! Thanks!
