I got curious about this and did some reading. Apparently in other
countries, what we call "vulcanizing" is simply "patching tires".
Vulcanization is actually the process of making raw rubber (you know, the
sap from rubber trees) an elastic solid by having it bind with other
chemicals, usually sulfur. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vulcanization
