Trivia DUCK TAPE, DUCT TAPE

Duck tape was originally green and developed by Johnson & Johnson for
the U.S. military, which wanted a waterproof tape that would keep the
moisture out of (and blend in with) their ammunition cases. During the
postwar housing boom, it was discovered that it was also good for heating
and air conditioning duct work, so the color was changed from army green
to silver, and duck tape became duct tape.
