That's because no one asks me about quantum physics, basket weaving, dressmaking, or things like that. Things that I don't know much, if anything, about. As long as the discussion on this car forum is cars and car related business, it's a pretty good bet that I have personal experience with a facet of it. Move away from there, to things like boating rules or paramedic training, and I simply won't answer, as I don't have a horse in those races.

Yeah, so anyway, I've got this basket that needs weaving. I was wondering if you tie off the twine with a taut line hitch or a sheet bend?

A phoenix tail knot would work well with twine.

Wouldn't use either one for a basket. BAsket weaving and knot tying (especially a taut line hitch, that's used for everything from boat tyoffs to tent tie downs, which is what I use it for when camping with the Scouts) are not exactly the same thing... One's weaving, the other is work.

I'm a student, yet I'm postponing (sp?) college this year because of music and cars. I'm a drummer in 2 bands (hopefully one can begin playing out for $$$$!) and also I'm a mechanic-in-training at a local shop. Should be going for my first ASE certification in Engine Repair, then Engine Performance. If my musical career falls through, I've got my ASE cert. to use, and if I decide that a mechanic's life doesn't interest me, off to college.




DAMN, I JUST CAN'T DECIDE!
