So I take 70' of nice soft 3/8" nylon rope, with the aim of cutting it into 1 20' piece and 5 10' pieces. I do okay with the 20', but the next bit winds up 7', not 10'. Oops.
So I have 3 11', one 10', one 7', one 20', and the rope is now in the toybag where it belongs, with the ends nicely taped, instead of on the kitchen counter begging me to do something with it.
It's creativity, that's it. Why are you looking at me funny?
