    Make sure to reinforce the pieces of tape that run over the dowel rod... Someone posted a video of a kid making this a while back and he got in and promptly ripped all the tape right across the dowel rod and hit the deck.

    "infotainment" - love that term - I know I'll use it before I'll use a duct tape hammock, but still enjoyed the link.

    ...everything?

    "Duct tape is like The Force: it has a light side, a dark side, and it binds the galaxy together." Don't remember where I first read that, but...

    Doesn't surprise me that you can make an hammock out of it. Seems like you can make just about anything else with it. Good link, though, should I ever get the hankerin' to have a shiny silver hammock... Thanks!
