    If he were in Pisa, Italy, would he use his truck’s winch to straighten the Tower? (If duct tape were invented in the 1700s, then the Bell would be “fixed.”)

    I forgot where I saw it, maybe Mythbusters, but they tested and found out that duct tape is good for everything except fixing actual ducts.

    There is an actual brand of tape labeled “Duck Tape.”

    We’ve gone over this before… There’s a brand of duct tape called Duck Tape (found at most Ace Hardware stores) and in its near environs is a similar type of tape, name of Gorilla Tape, a cousin of Gorilla Glue. The stuff is unmerciful in getting it un-stuck if you put it on wrong first try and I use it whenever needed. Back in the day, duct tape really was used in heating and a/c work, but mostly worked better on “the cold side” as the adhesive gave up on the hot side over time. Not having the time nor patience to re-learn HTML commands, please place the little circles with ‘tm,’ ‘R’ and ‘C’ enclosed wherever you feel they’re required.

    The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American independence, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Formerly placed in the steeple of the Pennsylvania State House (now renamed Independence Hall), the bell was commissioned from the London firm of Lester and Pack (today the Whitechapel Bell Foundry) in 1752, and was cast with the lettering (part of Leviticus 25:10) “Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” It originally cracked when first rung after arrival in Philadelphia, and was twice recast by local workmen John Pass and John Stow, whose last names appear on the bell. In its early years, the Liberty Bell was used to summon lawmakers to legislative sessions and to alert citizens to public meetings and proclamations.


    No immediate announcement was made of the Second Continental Congress’s vote for independence, and thus the bell could not have rung on July 4, 1776, at least not for any reason related to that vote. Bells were rung to mark the reading of the Declaration of Independence on July 8, 1776, and while there is no contemporary account of the Liberty Bell ringing, most historians believe it was one of the bells rung. After American independence was secured, it fell into relative obscurity for some years. In the 1830s, the bell was adopted as a symbol by abolitionist societies, who dubbed it the “Liberty Bell.” It acquired its distinctive large crack sometime in the early 19th century—a widespread story claims it cracked while ringing after the death of Chief Justice John Marshall in 1835.


    The bell became famous after an 1847 short story claimed that an aged bell-ringer rang it on July 4, 1776, upon hearing of the Second Continental Congress’s vote for independence. Despite the fact that the bell did not ring for independence on that July 4, the tale was widely accepted as fact, even by some historians. Beginning in 1885, the City of Philadelphia, which owns the bell, allowed it to go to various expositions and patriotic gatherings. The bell attracted huge crowds wherever it went, additional cracking occurred and pieces were chipped away by souvenir hunters. The last such journey occurred in 1915, after which the city refused further requests.

    Clearly a job for JB Weld. Pluggers know the difference.
