Scientists have discovered that Scotch tape gives off X-rays.

But only when you unroll it in a vacuum.


This is the scientific breakthrough I’ve been waiting for — a way to cut down on health care costs by making your own X-rays.

Need a dental X-ray? Grab some film and small roll of tape.

Need a chest X-ray? Use the super size roll.

Got a tumor that needs a little radiology? Go to Sam’s Club, buy a couple of cases of Scotch tape wholesale and get to work!
