    Para cord

    Anyone do any of this stuff. I've tried, but I suck at women's work.

    Yes, as long as it's only 10' tall

    There is a thing called a "Ranger Bracelet" that is used in military circles. It is worn much like any bracelet but can be used in emergencies as required. Nothing better in a survival situation for snares, shelters, etc. I used paracord for many thing over the years but mostly in parachutes that I never used.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    I have a paracord knotted lanyard on all my knives, you never know when you'll need it and it's right there.

    Never tried a watchband, personally I think it looks terrible. And Rangers would never be caught wearing a 'Ranger bracelet' in my day...some guys I knew made them for their wives/girlfriends/kids to wear while they were deployed.

    I've never tried doing anything artsy with it, but it is so handy as a utility cord. I often use it to tie down things to the rear rack of the bike. The largest were microwaves. (just one at a time)

    I wonder how paracord would do as a handle bar wrap?
