    The best part was the ending. The only disappointing part for me was that he used rope. Should have been able to duct tape that part as well.

    Good duct tape ain't all that cheap. Probably cheaper to make a gathered end from the table cloth fabric.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Maybe, but one made of Duct Tape should keep you hanging in 100 mph winds.

    Not regular duct tape. You would have to use the mil spec "100mph" tape that they use in the military. That's why we called it "100mph" tape.

    I find that most duct tape now is very cheap in quality. Even the name brand stuff. That is why I now use Gorilla tape.
