Is it bad if you use last years NiMh cells as tree ornaments? Heck the old GP3700 were the perfect holiday colors.

Heck no!! I think it is okay to use the tape, that way she knows I am doinig more out there then she thinks! And I use all my old cells for the kids toys, that way I have to get fresh ones to race with!!!
Actually I even used super glue to hold a present together!

Is it bad if when you ask a loved one what they want for christmas, and you expect a part number?

Is it bad if nomatter where you are at, you refer to cotter pins as body clips?

Is it bad if you inhale solder fumes all day wireing up that new speedo, yet you complain about the smog outside?

On that note.

Is it bad if your flatulence smells like Paragon?

I have the most deadly farts ever... Imagine cauliflower smell times 100 in concentration. That is what got me the name "tofu fart" at school.

just make sure you use 2 layers, you don't want that present coming undone in a crash

Also, be sure to file the corners of the package down to allow for the wrapping paper to seat proporly and so that the tape doesn't get cut upon impact.
