What cool usecases can you come up with(without duck tape)

Why is it named duck?
To answer your question about the origin of the name duck tape, I found this on the internet so it must be true.

That's the opposite of what I heard. "Duct tape" came first, "duck tape" is a phonetic bastardization caused by the English speakers finding it difficult to pronounce two sharp consonants in a row.

Talking of which, any idea why some words made by gluing together two words where the second word starts with the same letter as the first word ends with, end up with double letters, but others don't?

Examples:
mis- + place -> misplace (no double letters, but a benchmark to demonstrate no letters are lost)
mis- + shape -> misshape (double letter)
thresh + hold -> threshold (no double letter, one h is dropped)

So duck tape is misspelled.

Now the million dollar question.

The bird duck. Shouldn’t that be called duct?

A foldable screen would be a STATMENT.

We are Samsung and we rule kind of.

If Samsung manage to release foldable Apple and others have to adapt and make their own implementation of cool things unless they want to go down as Nokia.
