Duct Tape Teacher
2001 At-Risk Survivor
Confirmed True by Darwin

(September 2001, Ohio) A 49-year-old physics teacher allowed students to duct tape him to a wall as part of a highschool fundraising event. But duct tape, unlike ordinary garments, doesn't "breathe." 80 minutes and 92 pieces of duct tape into the process, the teacher overheated and lost consciousness. He confided later, "I had some fantastic dreams while I was out." Doctors said the stunt would have been fatal, if students hadn't acted quickly and released him from his silver bonds.
