Duck vs Duct 

Duck Tape or Duct Tape? Apparently both.

When i was little, I liked ducks, and thought it sounded like "duck" and thus believed it was "duck". Then, when i was older i realized it logically should be "duct" and wasn't I silly for getting it wrong all these years? And a few years after that, I saw it in a store labelled as "Duck tape" and figured the universe was just messing with my head.

This link does nothing to sway me from that last conclusion. :)

This morning i was dreaming up elaborate stick figure scenes (don't ask), so it seems very appropriate to have stumbled across the box doodle project. Not that my eventual entry will necessarily have stick figures on it -- but there's no better phrase for conjuring up mental images of my artistic attempts than "stick figures".
