In my office, we get bubble wrapped samples all the time from vendors... the latest bubble wrap invention appears to be sheets of bubble wrap which are sticky on the back so you don't have to tape them shut anymore... of course other applications include sticking a sheet on your back and then pressing on a wall.... instant massage with gratifying sound accompanyment!

Unless some misinformed person mistakes the wrap for some horrible disease and hauls you off to hospital...

Has anyone come across the new bubble wrap which is impossible to pop?

I mean, that's just cruel. Bastards. It's like buying a packet of sweets, only to discover the "sweets" are actually polystyrene, and someone's played a cruel joke on you.

Perhaps it should be outlawed. Tony Blair could be really popular with this one. "I promise I will ban all unpoppable bubble wrap." "And polystyrene sweets."

I once invented something of that sort. But before you condemn me to hell, some explanation is in order. Only every *other* bubble on the sheet was inflated with air. Each bubble was connected to it's adjacent bubbles by tiny valves, so that when you pop one bubble, it's air just bursts through the valve and into another, previously empty bubble. Unfortunately, I never produced the stuff because it was never tested, and well, probably wouldn't work. But it's cute, isn't it?

It's not cute, it's a cruel, cruel trick.

I like the sound of that.

Mind you, It would need a pritty impressive casting mashine to make it I would of thought.
