I think this contest is going nowhere.

I think this thread should be locked by the moderators.
I saying this not because of any ill feeling...rather, it is evident that roo will continue to infinity and beyond with his claim that a noose can be used as a tie-in knot to a rock climbers harness.

And I will respond to save lives - because it is the right thing to do.

So an impasse is reached...with neither side backing down - so this thread ought to be locked in my view.

You don't have to keep responding if you wish, but why not at least keep the thread open in case someday you find some photographic evidence of nylon melting?

I'm willing to give you that chance.  Hell, if I find such an instance, I'll take a photo and post it.

I have recently been learning why 'flat Earthers' and 'moon landing conspiracy' theorists persist in their beliefs.
The reason why - I surmise - is that they firmly believe in what they are saying - and simply ignore the evidence around them.
How do you prove the Earth is a sphere to a "flat Earther" who simply ignores the evidence?

Moon landing conspirators have even gone so far as to confront the actual Apollo astronauts (Buzz Aldrin and Gene Cernan) and get them to swear on a bible on camera. Buzz Aldrin punched the guy in the face!

...

I note that roo always wants to do the following:
1. Get the last word in - no matter what; and
2. Use short, sharp combinations of words to acutely make his point.

If my predictions are correct, roo will reply again.

If I decide to no longer reply in this thread - its nothing to do with accepting roo's challenge...rather, its more of a case of not being bothered to argue with someone who cannot accept the empirical evidence of the detrimental effects of nylon-sawing-against-nylon in a free-fall event (analogy: how do you argue with a moon landing conspiracy theorist?).

Never tie-in to a rock climbing harness with a knot that acts like a noose...all else is noise.

Comparing me to "flat Earthers"?  Gee, thanks.   ::)  But I'm the only one providing hard evidence in this thread.  We're still waiting for your pictures of melted belay loop webbing from Gnat Hitch anchorage.

All else is noise.

Some simple, "backyard" drop tests of something
gnat-hitch'd (or other) to a rope slung mass
--the rope sling able to be chosen from disposable
stuff to stand in for the nylon harness loop-- and
a check on things made, vs. this continued nonsense
now into flat earth.  (We have a damn White House
to produce Alternative Facts --they need no help,
nor encouragement!)

Frankly, I don't wanna have to try to untie a fallen-upon
gnat hitch, but that's another matter.
