WEIRD & WILD: Duct tape does it all!
October 13, 2009  | By Diane Werts

Because you can just never learn enough about duct tape, here's a new hour of Mythbusters (Wednesday at 9 p.m. and midnight ET, Discovery) in which Adam and Jamie somehow manage to keep their giddy tests of this beloved product down to the show's usual hour length.

See them use duct tape to lift a 5,000-pound car, build a black-powder cannon, and repair a boat.

(The Army originally invented duct tape to seal ammo casings watertight. And the sponsor of the Discovery site's video clips is -- wait for it -- Pampers.)

Complete with vintage commercials!

Will this fun never stop?!

(Discovery repeats the MythBusters duct tape hour Oct. 21 at 8 and 11 p.m. ET.)
