Which brings us to sellotape...  I have never heard anyone refer to it 
here in the southern US, in reference to any brand, as anything but 
scotch tape.  Then again, we refer to all brands and flavors of soda (or 
pop, if you prefer) as coke.

I haven't smoked for 1 year, 1 month and 3 days,
saving $1,797.37 and not smoking 11,982.51 cigarettes.
