    That's the sound it makes when you separate the two sides quickly.

    Velcro is actually a trademarked brand. It's Hook and Loop tape.

    If you call it Velcro you could actually get sued and lose your home.

    :ohno:

    Wdym?

    There's Velcro-brand hook and loop tape and then there's the knockoff hook and loop tapes.

    Hell even 99 cent store often carries genuine Velcro

    The guy who invented the USB died. They lowered his coffin into the grave but it would not go in. They pushed and prodded it but it would not go into the hole. They turned him over and then he went right in.

    That's all I got... sorry. I need more likes if I'm ever gonna get double likes to posts. If I don't achieve that milestone, my life means nothing.
