RE: Knots
I used to tie a LOT of slip knots at work - not necessary with the nonviolent restraints we presently have at my hospital. A restrained patient tries to pull away - the knot just gets tighter. I pull at the end of the rope, it slips off quickly, they're unrestrained.

We'd have a pre determined time limit, during which they'd name a knot and we'd pick up the correct rope or cord, explain the textbook purpose of the knot, tie it, and put it down. Then a mountaineering instructor with severe OCD would inspect it for flaws that might reduce the weight capacity or otherwise weaken the system it was supposed to go with. Two failed knot tests and you're out.

That's interesting.

Sometimes when I think about the future, like 4 or 500 years from now, I wonder if things like knots will still be needed and used. Will robots do everything, even tie knots?

These are the things I think about when I'm home sitting on the couch with a damned cold. Facepalm

Heck we might even go backwards. Or perhaps small, protected, first world bubbles will move forward and leave the rest behind.

In recognition of the fact that many modern theatres of operation are undeveloped countries with harsh terrain, another component that would surprise most people is mule packing. This was added after an incident early in the operation in Afghanistan in which a poorly packed mule, which had been purchased from a local village when helicopter support was unavailable to fill the roll, lost its footing due to an unbalanced load and tumbled off a mountainside into a river several hundred feet below with several million dollars worth of communications equipment, not to mention the poor mule, leaving the squad camped up top without the necessary equipment for their mission.

Imagine that. 21st century warfare... Mission failed because nobody there knew how to pack a mule.

In Army Mountain Warfare school we just get a short class over a couple hours. But the marines brought back a full length dedicated animal packing course at their version of Maintain Warfare school that had been shut down since the Korean war.

RE: Knots
Cool, I have seen that knot done with beads on each loop for jewelry. Nice!

I've used this and several others for tying horses.

I like this one and used it most of the time because this tie comes clean away without leaving the rope laying over the bar.

And yet no one has suggested that Dances Google shibari.

My disappoint is real.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I feel totally stupid. I've never heard of shibari so I googled it.

All righty then!! Shocking
I learned something new today. This is what makes TTA so great. It's educational.

I'm stunned. I didn't know this even existed. I mean, I knew about bondage and S & M and all that but this is incredible.

Well, I found one photo I can post.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Knots
I love the art as well as the application. It's an amazing release.
