45 Reasons Rubber Rocks

— December 2, 2008 — Top Lists
Rubber is not just something you use for erasing pencil marks in the UK - or apparently something else if you’re from the US. In fact, I am in love with a hut called Vista Cottage which is covered in rubber.

This cluster may sound boring, but once you get into the trends, you’ll see how multifaceted and fun rubber can be. It has everything from rubber chandeliers to nuns, and castles to boots. There are even nuclear-proof elastic bands included!

And that is the sheer versatility of the material that is rubber!
