    You should be careful wrapping and unwrapping your Christmas gifts this year. Why? Because under certain conditions, Scotch tape gives of X-rays powerful enough to show bones.

    Who knew? :confused:

    Wow, that is just unbelievable. I had no idea that such a powerful movement of electrons was occurring just from unrolling scotch tape!

    I get the impression nobody did! :-o

    Just make sure you don't do it in a vacuum! :mrgreen:
    Believe me - I'm greatly tempted!

    Don't know about you, but I seldom use a vacuum chamber to wrap my presents in. It makes breathing a bit difficult.:mrgreen:

    Yeah. Same here sign1

    But when you have those special moments, nothing says "I love you" better than wrapping presents in a vaccum chamber.sign1

    Pretty interesting article though. Thanks for sharing that Mountain Man.

    That is cool! I could see some great applications for that kind of device.
    The question that comes to my mind is: Why are they experimenting with scotch tape in a vacuum chamber to start with?

    Funny - I had the same thought. The only answer I could come up with was they broke something and were out of duct tape. :rolleyes:

    Well, then - why didn't they experiment with the effects of using duct tape in a vacuum, when they got more????

    I think they just wanted "Grant money" and this was the only thing they could think of on short notice.. sign1sign1sign1sign1

    I applied for the same grant. All I needed was a vacuum chamber. All they send me was enough to buy a roll of Scotch Tape...:rolleyes: :rolleyes:
