I Am A Total Failure At:

Recommended Posts

Tying knots.

I have been taught this at school, scouts, cadets, I even have a book on it.

Try as I might the only knots I can do without the instructions in front of me are granny, reef, and bow.

The number of times I thought I had the sheepshank having memorised the script ("The rabbit comes out of his hole, goes round etc.") but no chance; it always collapsed to a granny knot when I pulled the ends.

Time to confess your utter utter failings!

OK, Frank. That's just showing off your knowledge of the jargon.

This could be quite a long list for me, but the main one is probably confidence. When I do something well I feel good about myself, but it wears off very quickly and I'm lacking in confidence again.

Ooh, I was trying to keep it light. Things like making rubbish cups of tea.

All aboard the HMS Inflatable then. No ropes, just a puncture repair it! You used to have to learn knots in the old days.

Cutting things straight. No matter how carefully I measure everything none of the pieces ever seem to fit together neatly and squarely afterwards.

Carpentry for you then.

Kinbaku is a Japanese style of bondage or BDSM which involves tying up the bottom using simple yet visually intricate patterns, usually with several pieces of thin rope. The word shibari came into common use in the West at some point in the 1990s to describe the bondage art Kinbaku. Shibari is a Japanese word that literally means "to tie" or "to bind".

Either of those should inspire you to learn how to knot.

So you meant "Inconsequential things I am a total failure at" ? Add "thread titling" to your list.

I'm terrible at being perverted. That is my failure. The Japanese have catchy words for everything. :o

There are too many threads starting with "Inconsequential things" already, I am not a near-total failure at avoiding repetition.
