(b.)A nice little money maker. People will actually buy stuff made out of it, i.e. wallets, roses, cell phone cases etc. Of course if I had no skill in making it, I would too.
(b.)I just made 20 dollars when I sold this stuff I made out of tape, but not any tape, duct tape!
Duct tape was origionally created during World War 2 for the US military to water-proof ammunition crates in the wet climates of the Pacific and Northern Europe. The water-proof qualities earned it the name Duck Tape as it repelled water like a duck's feathers. GIs then began using this tape for fixing things in the field. After the war, this useful product was unsuccesfully used to seal duct work (hence the generic name) later to be replaced by foil tape. The two main producers of quality duct tape are Duck Tape and 3M. It is ussually found in the full-sized, gray roll. However, it can be found in many colors and sizes with many backings (plastic, rubber, fibered etc).
