...try the exact same thing again. User Eyellgeteven especially likes that this same fix has been done before; note that you can see the remnants of old duct tape gone by.

Submitter MarchNero says: Whenever I'd go biking in jeans, my pant leg would always get caught in between the gear and the chain. To fix it, I simply taped a cardboard circle to the pedal. Works like a charm.

So back in the 1400s, instead of fixing page tears in a panic with tape, they would embroider them together with silk. This is probably the classiest response to a problem that that era ever had.

"The pages of the book are made of parchment and they show typical damage in the form of holes and tears that happened while the parchment was being made. Some time after the book was copied, the holes and tears have been mended artistically with silk of various colours, mainly in blanket stitch as used in embroidery."
