    • TRIVIA (4)

      • In 1992, Hurricane Andrew's 15 mph winds destroyed all the street signs in Baton Rouge except one: it was the only sign fastened with VHB Tape.

      • Working in zero gravity might be a challenge if it weren't for hook and look fasteners – which line the walls, ceilings and floor in many sections of the International Space Station.

      • The historic punishment tar and feathering should have been called rosin and feathering since it was pine tar rosin that gave the penalty its stick. The boiling hot pine tar blistered the skin of victims. Survivors could attempt to clean up with turpentine and tar soap.

      • Automakers use static electricity to paint their cars. The pain is negatively charged and the car is positively charged. Not only do opposites attract and the colors stick, but he negatively charged pain particles repel from on another – spraying a finer mist and more even finish.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Narrator: Think you know sticky stuff? Well, think again. Sure it's an office staple, but can it really build a skyscraper? Rip it, smear it, stretch it, just don't step in it because this stuff burns. From the roads we drive to the air we breathe, everything's coming up sticky. So stick around, it's Sticky Stuff, on Modern Marvels.
