Best Duct Tape Story Ever !!
During a private "fly-in" fishing excursion in the Alaskan wilderness, the chartered pilot and fishermen left a cooler and bait in the plane. And a bear smelled it. This is what he did to the plane.
The pilot used his radio and had another pilot bring him 2 new tires, 3 cases of duct tape, and a supply of sheet plastic. He patched the plane together, and FLEW IT HOME!!!

I don't think I could bear flying on a plane in that condition.

Only once? I never used to go anywhere without a roll of 'canoe tape'. I was a slalomist, maybe I hit more rocks than you!

My helmet takes more of a battering, I have a reputation for travelling forward the wrong way up.....
Most of the time though I have to get the lighter out of melt the crack together!.
I have found it quite good for covering up cuts and bruises sustained in this silly sport :-)

Nice one, v. subtle - can you believe it was able to bear up under the strain.

And of course I like to share some of those too - just a shame some of the miserable members who think ICT and the internet is the be all of human existence don't find them amusing. But the most important thing is I do, and so do you and many others.
