    If that Speed blood knot is strong, then this is just brilliant.
    Today is always the first day of the rest of your life.
    Use it wisely.

    Yeah, I'm here tell you, It is indeed not quite as easy as it looks. He says he's done literally thousands (or was it tens of thousands) of these, so I'm sure he has it down pat, but I found blood knots to be tough no matter how cool the method is. Try sticking a 7X tipped through a little slot with numb fingers on a windy day. Yikes!
