Fascinating...
In the early 1950s, a young lieutenant realized the fatal flaw in the cockpit design of U.S. air force jets. Todd Rose explains in an excerpt from his book, The End of Average.

Timely posting. The book this is an excerpt from is in my reading queue (2 more books stand in the way).

After Gentleman's meh, I wasn't sure if PSY could make a comeback… and then he gender flipped "I got it from my mama" and all is right in the world again.

Today's tie knot is Mocka's Stephanie knot (which one should not disassemble).

And why do these two hunter-gatherer groups have so many?

Tie code updated and now fully supports Mocka's Greek knot. Also made some minor ui tweaks.

Greek: SiFN uR W uC oL N oL T uR oL T uR SoN T uR

Today's tie knot is the Zorro knot, which (because Linwood is a terrible person who creates extra work for me) requires me to extend the tie code again, this time to add diagonal folds. The website has also been updated with the new needed diagrams.

I don't tend to comment, but I admire and am entertained by your tie knots. Please do keep sharing.

"Reverse causality"! I see it all the time and have been searching for what that's called.

Yesterday's tie knot was the Marcos knot, by Junio. It's a simple variation on the Atlantic, but I like the effect.

Today's tie knot is Junio's Fibonacci knot. It's a very complex, asymmetrical knot, with lots of steps, and some unusual looping. Even if you read the code well, I recommend watching the video.

Added knots by C-Three (≠C-Cubed, sorry), CG (yes, me), Novotny, and Zarins.

Today's tie knot is the Merovingian, which is a knot with an interesting history. A knot that looked similar to the one I'm wearing first appeared in the Matrix Reloaded (2003), worn by the Merovingian (hence the name). However, the knot in the movie is almost certainly a different knot than the one I'm wearing. The version I'm wearing was developed by Krasny. He himself credits Ediety with the knot,  but the Ediety knot is actually a different (closely related) knot, so I give Krasny credit for this one. 

Together with the Trinity and the Eldredge, the Merovingian is one of the major three early knots that really started and/or popularized exotic tie knots.

The Merovingian Knot (Krasny's Version): SiW uL oC uL oR uC oR uL oC T

(Note that although Krasny says a vest is necessary, with practice and a slender neck you can get away without one).
