Duct tape vs WD40

Can you think of two hardware products that get more word of mouth publicity than duct tape and WD-40?

There are many uses for both. People have created an entire crafting industry around duct tape. There are jokes about it. The number of uses are limitless. The same can be said for WD-40.

WD-40 even has aggregated a list of uses that fans have submitted to them and put it on their website. It contains pages and pages of thousands of uses.

A friend of mine posted this flowchart on Facebook the other day. It perfectly describes the Hardwarian‘s view of the two products. And it made me laugh.
