Knot Tying (w/ Lindsay)
Friday, October 15, 2010 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT)
Learn basic knot tying skills from the Bowline to Trucker's Hitch. Impress your friends with knowing how to tie a knot and when to use it.One of the single most useful skills, and the best way to fake all-encompassing competence- step up out the background and tie a clever knot to secure an awkward load to the top of the truck, and the next thing you know people will be deferring to your opinion, no matter how poorly reasoned, and handing you the keys to their helicopter without question. A shockingly low percentage of people know how to tie knots, and if you become one of the elect you will always be useful, always be called upon, and will get constant flirtations from people who have been a font of unfocused longing ever since they saw Secretary. Additionally, when the awesomeness becomes too much to bear you can end yourself in style.
