Greatest Tools #1: Duct Tape Revisited

Greatest Tools #1: Duct Tape Revisited

I believe the merits of duct tape should be shouted from the mountaintops. The longer I live the more uses I find for this invaluable resource.

Here is a list of my favorite few.

  • Securing computer cables.
  • It is great for splicing wires because it is wider and more sturdy than black electrical tape.
  • Emergency luggage patch.
  • Repairing and marking your guitar case.
  • Hide a key under your fender.
  • Emergency hose repair.
  • Holding the batteries in your remote control.
  • Tape an extra desk key under your desk.
  • Remove those long ear hairs the come with middle age (ouch!).

Extra bonus. Add a few years to that favorite book by re-enforcing the ragged binding.

What are your favorite uses?

The Lifehack Show: How Exercise Slows Aging with Judy Foreman

In this episode of the Lifehack Show, we'll be talking with Judy Foreman about the major impact exercise has on aging, both physically and mentally.

She received a Master’s degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and was a Fellow in Medical Ethics at Harvard Medical School. Judy is also author of A Nation in Pain: Healing our Biggest Health Problem and The Global Pain Crisis: What Everyone Needs to Know.

Her newest book Exercise is Medicine: How Physical Activity Boosts Health and Slows Aging debunks some common myths about aging and shows that it is possible to reverse the effects we often think of as inevitable.
