vhs tape
 
Great to have in your Bob. Light weight and doesn't take up much room, very useful.
The plastic can be melted and used as an adhesive. One of the springs (once reinforced) can be used as a fish hook. There are a few useful screws and small metal parts that can be used.
The best part is of course the tape itself.
Once stretched and twisted like cordage it can be used for all sorts of things from sewing to fishing line, trip wires and snares. I believe it could also be used for a bow string but haven't tested that yet.

Anyone else know of random items like this that have alot of uses?

I hear tampons can clog up about anything to include wounds.

I hear dead bears are just PACKED with useful fat, meat, and sinews (bow string).

I actually used to use pads to cover tattoos after I did them. Lol

WILSON!!!! Had to make a movie reference on that one. Condoms and crayola crayons, both have multiple uses, small and easy to carry

The original purpose of tampons was as bullet wound "cloggers"

Big bullet wounds! We used to put condoms on our M16 Muzzles when in wet weather, they didnt work so well, broke too easy! Thats a pretty good break down of the VHS Tape, never even thought of those uses, the tape is pretty strong and there is a mile of it on there.

I wouldn't know where to find a VHS tape anymore. Yard sales?
