Which is better: WD-40 or duct tape?

To paraphrase an old engineering joke,* if it is supposed to move and doesn’t, use WD-40; if it’s not supposed to move and does, use duct tape. Basically, the two are the yin and yang of the great Tao of fixing stuff. If Batman only had two things in his utility belt, they’d be it. They're both essential items, but which of the two is the most useful?

WD-40’s formula is a trade secret blend of oils, propellants and carbon, supposedly. Or maybe the tears of unicorns. Who knows? With WD-40 you can do all the normal lubrication and degreasing tasks like loosen screws, silence squeaky hinges and remove gum from shoes. Fixing sticky piano keys? Untangling gold chains? No problem. Keeping bugs from hanging out in window sills? Also a job for WD-40. It’s got a zillion and one uses. Or at least, 2000, among which are “keep clay from sticking to rakes” and separating LEGO bricks.

Duct tape (believe it or not, originally called duck tape, then duct, and later, duck again as a brand name) is perhaps the only substance known that can be used to repair spacecraft and to make wallets and banana-themed art installations. It’s strong, flexible, versatile and reliable, unlike most of the human race. Did you know it can remove splinters, hem pants and catch flies? Not at the same time, of course. That would be gross and unfashionable. Doesn’t work all that great on ducts, strangely enough. Ducks, who can say?

Could duct tape fix a leaking bottle of WD-40?
