Today, I visited a duct factory.

No, not the tape.

MKT Metal Manufacturing in Manchester Township, Pa., makes air ducts for commercial buildings and the kinds that are exposed in super swanky apartments.

Think ducts are boring, eh?

You’re wrong. Ducts are cool for a lot of reasons.

1. They’re everywhere.

2. The word “duct” is actually pretty fun to say. Duct. Duct.

3. They bring us the air flow, yo.

4. Most importantly, you can crawl inside them JUST LIKE IN THE MOVIES. (Sort of. For the skinny on that movie magic myth, you’ll have to read my story.)

Being a manufacturing reporter can be pretty cool.

Any story — even ones about pieces of metal construction tubey thingies — can be fun if you just ask silly questions.

So, that being said, read my story.
