Now That’s A Stretch

French scientists have created a self-healing rubber band that, if it breaks, can be repaired just by pressing the edges together for a few minutes. And it can be repaired over and over and over. Now how about using it for something more useful, like tires, balloons, and condoms?

    Mad Dog, what not even one comment about what this self healing rubber band is made from? A waste product of urine? I don’t care if they can make it synthetically I won’t be buying these things at office depot!

    According to the news article it’s made from “fatty acids like those found in vegetable oils, and urea, a waste compound in urine that can be made synthetically.” [Italics mine]

    Now ain’t that a pisser…

    It’s safe to go back to Office Depot.
