    A guy in my unit in Hawaii rappelled with 550 cord. Needless to say it didn't work out to well.

    Apparently it didn't last very long. He was on the third floor, backed out into his L, bounded away, and hit the ground.

    You gotta wonder how many variations of "I am such a stupid fuck" went through his mind before he hit the ground. :rofl:

    Does this evasion situation involve rappelling? 550 cord offers up no resistance.
