So I am fascinated, scared, and excited to, in the words of Josh Zacher, shatter my ignorance! I was horrified to find that, according to the article about protecting Arizona’s public land, logging has left only five percent of the Southwest’s original old growth forests still standing. The Ponderosa Pine Forests of the region are listed among the most endangered ecosystems in the world. The area is also prone to fucking idiots, as target shooters decide to take their guns and shoot big ugly bullets at saguaro cacti, petroglyphs, and other natural resources and formations.
That was just the beginning of what I learned on the many ways humanity is pooping the party in the environmental department. What I had to laugh at, however, was the inclusion in the documents of the Six Boy-Scout Knots. It was so helpful, as now I have six multi-purpose knots to use if I need to bind two objects or tie up my truck. I don’t have a truck though. Anyway, I thought I’d re-teach the lesson in a fun way, except I’m only doing the three knots that don’t require a post. I also tied them all with my phone charger. Cowabunga.
For shoestrings and things Don’t bind two ropes together, Maybe they’ll slip loose!
It’s a non-slip loop, A true gangsta knot which YOU, Might see if rescUED.
Again, it’s a knot Alone and lonely? Not this Knot. Two ropes together.
