Most modern ropes are made of two components – a core that takes the bulk of the load, accounting for up to 95 per cent of the rope's strength, and a protective outer cover that provides abrasion resistance, protection from sunlight and so on. Although there has not been a sea change in rope technology over the past few years, there has still been significant development, with applications that might once have required a 14mm line now served by one of 8mm. This gives an opportunity to save a considerable amount of weight. In the case of halyards, this is saved aloft, which has the additional benefit of improving stability.

Spinal cord injuries occur when the diver strikes his/her head on an object such as a pool or lake bottom or a submerged object. Most serious injuries involve the cervical spine (neck) in the C-5 region and are classified as compression or flexion-compression injuries. A diver's extended hands and arms provide the only source of protection to the head. Should the arms collapse upon impact or not be in a forward position, the head is vulnerable. When diving into shallow water, very little reaction time is available between entering the water and striking the bottom.

Meanwhile, here's a link from last week that is worth revisiting, especially if you're in the market for something to defend your home with. It was the PSA's 16" mid-length carbine and Springfield XD .40 together for only $849 -- putting that number into perspective, Palmetto State Armory (PSA) has a terrific reputation within the AR community and the rifle is normally $749 (on sale for $549) and the pistol is normally $39 by itself -- combined that's $988 with the rifle on sale, $1188 otherwise. So not just blowing wind up your skirt, that's a hell of a deal and if you are in the market and don't jump on this, you will fucking hate yourself this time next real. For realz.
