>one length of sling is worth 22kn wrap it twice around, ie double it,
>and it's worth 44kn, do the math !

BomberPro, regardless of whether you are using two slings or doubling over one sling, you are not
increasing the sling's strength. All you are doing is distributing the load between the two points. Think
of a rope used to equalise three anchor points.

Also, the sugar in a coffee cup is not a wives tale, it's chemistry.

Anyway, BomberPro, when I wrote 'um, not sure if this is how forces work...' it was a polite way of
saying that you may need to rethink your statement. Was trying to phrase my sentence in a nice and
unconfrontational manner.

I am not out to attack you.

Also, from my own observations it appears that there are quite a large quantity of highly intellegent
people in this sport compared to other sports out there, so maybe you need to refrain from calling so
many people stupid, because probabilistically speaking you will have a fare chance of being wrong.
