My son is in the Boy Scouts and of course knows his reefs from his grannies, his monkey’s first from his Turk’s head and can do a bowline with the best of them. One thing they haven’t done yet, is to find a lashing or whipping method that allows you to tie up your mp3 player headphone cord so that it doesn’t get tangled up in your sportsbag or pocket. Well, those fellas at Youtube have got just the thing. Check out this neat and simple way to tie up your headphone cable that’s just as easy to undo and means you won’t need any detangler spray ever again! This video would go quite well with the spoof vid over on Sciencebase showing you how to run an mp3 player using sweet potatoes, some copper wire and couple of galvanized (zinc coated) nails.
My scouting son recognized this whole thing as nothing more than a bit of whipping, of course. But, neat, nevertheless.
And now, a word to the wise: Be sure to compare mp3 player prices and save money on that expensive mp3 player so you can afford all the mp3 player accessories you want to go with it.
