Forget all those guns, fancy survival kits and shelters, no need for a 4x4. All you need to survive is .... DUCT TAPE.
I am going to make sure my BOB is full of it... Thank you mythbusters....

I agree!! Duct tape can fix almost ANYTHING!! I've fixed multiple pairs of glasses, broken picture frames, I've even hung things with duct tape "ropes"!

Duct tape, FTW!

I like duct tape, and i appreciate the effort mythbusters did with it.

But it still doesn't beat a good knife.

And you will eventually run out of duct tape.

Yup, I will eventually run out of bullets too. a good knife will last forever. But while the duct tape lasts you can fix lots of things. Heck I even once used duct tape to make a handle for one of my knives when the handle broke. It worked very well.

I am a huge fan of Duct Tape, yet it can not purify water or build me a fire...

Duct tape is a excelrnt item to have in your survival kit but, by no means is it the "end all" survival tool.

You should watch the full episode because it can do those things. It can be used to make a solar still and it can be used to make fire... Who'da thunk it???

No offense to the OP but whenever i hear duct tape for protection i think about Louis Black.

Warning course language follows:

Well being that my previous post was considered "ill-mannered" I will restate


No where in you post has a link to the video that proves that duct tape can start a fire or even purify water.

I remember that episode. I used to build model rockets as a kid. I probably could build a duct tape RPG...

Untrue.
In a life or death conflict situation, if you try to stab me, I will defend myself with a roll of duct tape. You'll stab the roll, I'll live, and then I have the duct tape AND the knife, and you... well, you'd better run, son.

I don't think the entire episode is online. It is definitely a must watch. I am sure there will be reruns. They have several duct tape episodes. They use it to make rope, boats, cannons, nets... They use it to repair a plane. It isn't the be all and end all but it is so versatile.
