Stephan Hawking’s got A Brief History of Time, but we’ve one-upped up with the Brief History of Packing Tape.  Yes, there’s an infographic for this useful tool which we often take for granted.  Even 2,000 years ago, when the first known adhesives were recorded, people had a need for tape.  After all, how would our ancestors moved their belongings without it?  Ok, so it wasn’t tape per-se, but you get the gist.
