What is happening

When the tape is initially removed from the dispenser, it is given a static charge. Since the pieces of tape are removed from the same source they will have the same charge. Since similar charges repel, the pieces of tape will repel each other when they are close to each other. Depending on the charge of the monitor, the tape will either repel or attract your monitor. Try using different monitors or televisions to see if you notice any difference. YOu might also try turning off and on your monitor to see when it does to the tape.
