    Cool This Gave Me A Real Jolt.

    I forgot to post this PIC back when this item was listed on Ebay.

    I guess it sold because it's not on there anymore.

    I almost bought it just for laughs.

    The SMURF Paracord Survival Bracelet.

    I bought it
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    They originally started as a convenient way to carry a short piece of paracord in case of emergencies. The bracelets were made to be easily unraveled. Lately they have become the new friendship bracelet made in multiple colors and many no longer are easily unraveled for use in emergencies.

    Military Uses - Despite the historic association of pararopes with airborne units and divisions, virtually all US units have access to the cord. It is used in almost any situation where light cordage is needed. Typical uses include attaching equipment to harnesses, as dummy cords to avoid losing small or important items, tying rucksacks to vehicle racks, securing camouflage nets to trees or vehicles, and so forth. When threaded with beads, paracord may be used as a pace counter to estimate ground covered by foot. The yarns of the core (commonly referred to as "the guts") can also be removed when finer string is needed, for instance as sewing thread to repair gear, or to be used as fishing line in a survival situation. The nylon sheath is often used alone, the yarn in the core removed, when a thinner or less elastic cord is needed such as when used as a boot lace. Ends of the cord are almost always melted and crimped to prevent fraying.

    Modern uses-Hikers and other outdoor sports enthusiasts sometimes use "survival bracelets" made of several feet of paracord which is woven into a compact and wearable form. Such bracelets are meant to be unraveled when one needs rope for whatever purpose — securing cargo, lashing together poles, fixing broken straps or belts, assisting with water rescues, controlling bleeding with a tourniquet, etc.

    Can you tell I am going through some pics and getting rid of some really ancient junk?

    This PIC was on a doggone floppy disk.

    Yes, my first digital camera was a SONY Mavica and it took pics and put them onto a floppy disk that you slid into it.

    I think I still have that camera.

    A carved leather sheath that I made many moons ago for an early Cold Steel Trail Master Bowie.

    That's really nice! I have my Dad's leather carving kit with all the tools. He used to do that too.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    The paracord is a modern version of the fringes used on buckskin clothing.
