Kids! Preserve Your Stickiness!

"You have to look at why sex was created," Eric Love, the director of the East Texas Abstinence Program, which runs Virginity Rules, said one day, the sounds of Christian contemporary music humming faintly in his Longview office. "Sex was designed to bond two people together."

To make the point, Love grabbed a tape dispenser and snapped off two fresh pieces. He slapped them to his filing cabinet and the floor; they trapped dirt, lint, a small metal bolt. "Now when it comes time for them to get married, the marriage pulls apart so easily," he said, trying to unite the grimy strips. "Why? Because they gave the stickiness away."

Isn't the purpose of tape to stick to something once, and then become useless? Does that mean that this guy thinks humans mate like Praying Mantises? I think "Eric Love" needs to attend some sex ed courses.

Sorry for the double post, but when I saw this, I knew it had to be posted. Apparently, Eric Love's tape demonstration has been defeated by science.

Tests showed that the material could be stuck and unstuck more than 1,000 times, even when used under water. The researchers said that other materials had only demonstrated "a few contact cycles". -from BBC news.

I guess his tape wasn't up to the task. It should also be noted that anyone who has tape that sticks for more than 4 hours should seek immediate medical attention.
