    of course nobody who reads HF would have that particular failure.

    ah, wait a minute, never mind.

    I thought the urban intervention thing was cool. Maybe the cops wouldn't have chased them off if they'd used tree huggers, waddya think?

    that looked vary similar to me with my first hammock. I couldn't wait to hang it, so I used some 550 cord I had on hand. It actually held me for about 10 min.

    The steel on my hammock stand cushioned me from the concrete garage floor once. Would have hurt worse if I had done it in public like he did!

    Let's see, he used cotton 'clothesline' rope.
    He hung from questionable structures.
    He tied...was that a square knot?

    Maybe he should be riding Unicorns instead.
    Trust nobody!
