They are very durable, and flexible, without stretching. Because they are made with nylon, or a mix of fibers, you don’t have to worry about them being exposed to the elements, and they can withstand years of use and abuse and still be in top condition. The ropes come in many different thicknesses, as well as a variety of different weave patterns.

Technically, when someone owns a piece of property – that property extends from the middle of the earth to the sky. The government decided this might be true, but the government owned the airwave’s above all land. The government gave free use of these airwaves to radio, cable and television stations. We now pay for the use of our own airwaves. Anti-trust – again – said companies, or corporations could only own – I believe – 5% of any media. This too is no longer true.

We all accepted the idea of planned obsolescence with car parts because the parts were American made and meant jobs for us. Now we still have planned obsolescence but all parts are made in China. Check the box the next time you have to replace a car part, knowing that part was deliberately given a specific shelf life so it would have to be replaced. Our government bailed out the automobile industry because – again – it meant jobs for Americans. The big three have taken many of those manufacturing plants to other countries.
They are also used in a variety of children’s playgrounds, as well as for summer camps. Because they are not metal, they won’t corrode or wear down as easily, and if a child slips and falls they are less likely to get hurt. In these types of settings, they can be a great form of exercise, building balance and coordination without children even realizing it. They can also be found at many gyms and sports complexes. A cargo net makes a great barrier for games like soccer, Lacrosse, as well as various other sports. These can also be a great way to experience rock climbing, without all the risks. They are used for endurance, as well as strength training exercises.
