Posted:Alrite so heres my storywhile spinning in a club on saturday nite, I was competing in a circle when the glowstick I was using as a handle came loose, the string and the lit glowstick went flying right smack dab into a fellow glowstikkers nuts, he fell to the floor holding onto his balls for about five minutes and then got up still wincing in pain. lukkily he wasnt pissed and laughed about it but I promised myself that from now on Im gonna triple knot my strings...------------------Do You ever Question Your life?

Posted:i've found that the best knot that holds extremely well and still can be un-tied is the bowline knot... (rabbit comes out of the hole, around the tree, and back in the hole) i dont know how else to explain the knot... but i'm sure there's an online resource about knots.. and this one's a pretty good one :P-Tails

Posted:I use a noose - the faster you spin 'em, the tighter the knot, and yet still easy to remove once the pressure is off. Really is just a fancy slipknot.(quite a morbid feeling when swinging a teddy or cat around your head!
