See, this is why I think [Dalai Edit].

If you're used to falling on a rope and being pulled up at 2-3g, then
0.5g for a tenth of a second is going to feel very much like no load. Anyone
who fancies themselves as being a bit intelligent should be able to work
that out.

Rob and Ben both wrote very clear and accurate accounts of the incident,
and worked out what caused the thing to snap. Shit only got confusing when
you decided to introduce pointless complications and wild assumptions.
Luckily, Mike produced a computer simulation, and now you know that what
happened can actually happen so everything is ok.

Dalai Edit - once again you have directly attacked another member of the board. One week time out...

You have been warned often enough OHD.
