12 Fabulous Uses for Duct Tape

Duct tape can be used for a variety of minor to major emergencies, from baby-proofing your power outlets to temporarily repairing the hole in your canoe.

Also, duct tape can make for some pretty amazing prom dresses. And if you are too old to go to prom, take note that duct tape has on more than one occasion helped astronauts in space.
