The question about desert islands on last week's AQOS, you remember. The one item you'd want.
"Mythbuster" dudes choose duct tape. Which, as memory serves, got zero responses from us. I choose a knife. (Btw, fuck you guys who said "boat"...may as well have said, "Let this island be Manhattan!").
So they collect frest water with duct tape. Capture wild animals. Make shelter. A chess board. And, ultimately *make* a boat (a Hawaiian canoe, actually) out of duct tape.
Duct tape. The most valuable invention of all time?
