Ah, progress!

You've gotta love technology. She promises so much, delivers so little. Yesterday's news (and calling it that seems quite appropriate) included the revelation that science has discovered a way to create a self-healing elastic band. You know the problem: you've got a perfectly good elastic band, but it breaks, and tying a knot in the ends is just too fiddly. Well, here's the solution - simply hold the broken ends together for a minute, and it's good as new.


But my question is, how many of these bands will they sell in a packet? And do you get your money back when you find them all stuck together? Or do you just go to Guinness to ask about the current world record for rubber band balls?
