Does anybody know why it is called strapping tape? I am on my school's color guard team, so I use it often when I'm taping/re-taping my rifle, and it's always confused me because it has nothing to do with the strap..... Anyone?
#43 to #36 - ewamcnamara (04/06/2013) [-]
its used for strapping stuff down, the white string in the tape makes it quite sturdy and wont rip unless you cut it. basically just strong ass tape

That makes sense. Thank you kind sir.

strapping can mean big and strong or attractive or whatever

I guess that makes sense... But I still think its something else. I'll let my brain be ok with what it has for now though. Thanks

This is actually from graffiti research labs. you can also find it also on ffff.at. you essentially throw them up high on metal objects such as statues, flag poles, public trains, etc. and no one can get them down. they stay lit for days with those little batteries and light up whatever they cover. and they are not that expensive if you know where to buy the materials at for cheap.

or maybe buy some x.mas lights?

Go watch step up they did this **** with magnets and threw those ******* at ****

We could Lite-Brite anything anywhere.

I once stuck a lite brite up my nose... had to go to the hospital to get it out

that **** would be so ******* expensive for like 2 seconds of coolness

congratulations, you literally just threw away 30 dollars worth of batteries
seriously, button cells are expensive
#52 to #18 - Keep (04/06/2013) [-]
8 cents each on Amazon. $30 would get you 375
User avatar #23 to #18 - bjartur ONLINE (04/06/2013) [-]
ebay button alkaline batteries 10 pieces .99 cents.
User avatar #19 to #18 - oceanmist ONLINE (04/05/2013) [-]
Well you could always open a $2 12V energizer battery, it has 8 button cells inside.

Isn't this the stuff that was on Step Up 3, I think they were called neoflies
User avatar #13 - havocnchaos (04/05/2013) [-]
Can someone explain the reason for doing this?
User avatar #15 to #13 - blokrokker ONLINE (04/05/2013) [-]
Because we can.
#49 to #15 - anonymous (04/06/2013) [-]
Didn't read your response, too busy watching your profile gif.
#28 to #15 - madcoww (04/06/2013) [-]
Because I think it's fun.

What AREN'T you supposed to do with it?
#4 - arwendar ONLINE (04/05/2013) [-]
It looks awesome but it contradicts with alot of the stuff I've learned.
Isn't it so that a LED has near to none resistance and thus if you create something like this the entire thing short circuits.

Can anyone tell me the reason why & how this works then?
It kinda bothers me...
#37 to #4 - Biue (04/06/2013) [-]
LEDs are light emitting diodes, meaning they drop a typical voltage of 2.2v(variable by color) so if you go too much higher than that, it will be trying to pull more current than the battery can even supply so you hit the batteries max current and **** tends to heat up. If you put a resistor in series with the LED the resistor will drop all but 2.2v. The higher the resistor the lower the current.
User avatar #14 to #4 - ounerify (04/05/2013) [-]
this should work fine, i've held an LED up to a 9v battery many a time and it hasn't exploded. It just wont last very long because all of the 3volts will be going straight to the single LED. for best efficiency you want to put a resistor in some where between 300 and 400 ohm. i have found 330 works best with LED's
#6 to #4 - StealerShock (04/05/2013) [-]
The real problem is the battery being too powerful for the LED, if you want them to last the 1000s of hours they are supposed to, you'd need to put a resistor in there, usually a 370 ohm would do it. Then they'd last for ******* weeks!!

If you buy the LEDs, batteries, and resisors in bulk (about 100 at a time) it shouldn't be too expensive, but buying enough decent magnets would cost a fair amount, look up neodymium magnets, the size looks like about 3-4mm x 1-2mm
User avatar #9 to #8 - occamsrazor (04/05/2013) [-]
I actually have a ******* of tiny neodymium magnets

this must be their purpose
#10 to #9 - StealerShock (04/05/2013) [-]
Then go ahead and make a few to test it out, if the magnets are strong enough to hold the weight of the LED, battery and resistor, then you're golden
User avatar #5 to #4 - aahrg (04/05/2013) [-]
i'm pretty sure that's why they use such a small battery.
