11:15 Interesting fact: -40 happens to be the point where Fahrenheit and Celsius intersect. So, you don't have to say "Minus 40ºF". Just saying "Minus 40º" works. And before some smart aleck replies that it's still ambiguous because of Kelvin, I'm going to suggest they learn what they are talking about.

I love this hammock and this company. I bought this double hammock to try out and liked it well enough to buy their mosquito hammock also. I moved into a new place and while I was shopping for a bed set this hammock up on an IKEA hammock stand. I found it to be completely comfortable and in fact when ever I would sleep in a bed when traveling I found that my back really missed the hammock. I've now decided not to buy a bed and I am staying with the hammock permanently.

My daughters love to swing in it and have asked me to buy them hammocks for our camping trips. So, I now own 1 Double Hammock and 3 Mosquito Hammock all from Yukon Outfitters.

Thank you for this video! Excellent, clear, and to the point. You mention tinting the window, which is what I need to do. How do you get the glass out?

People have really lost their minds and their humanity in dealing with "Drones". Maybe it's the association of that term with military operations. I don't know what it is for sure but people, when dealing with these flying craft, lose all common sense and turn barbaric. You can't shove a person's property "up their butt" (as has been mentioned in comments) because you don't like it. You can't destroy a person's property because you don't like it or the sound it makes. You can't assault a person or take their camera because you fall into the frame of their shot. Here are some analogs that we are all familiar with and know that we cannot retaliate against.
1. If you don't like the noise of someone's lawn mower or motorcycle, you can't destroy it or assault them.
2. If you are in public or even in your yard and a father is shooting video of his children and you end up in the frame, you can't take his camera or assault him.
3. If someone is flying a kite at the beach or on a pier, you can't take or destroy his kite or assault him.

These things are all so obvious. Why do people think that because it is a new form of technology they have the right to turn into animals? I used to fly airplanes with cameras in the early 90s with my dad. This is nothing new. It's just more accessible. We still live in a society and have the rule of law.

+Richard “Bruno” Bronosky People are afraid. Especially in America where most of these 'drone assaults' occur. Americans are afraid of everything, that is why most families own a gun. Fear is brought about by ignorance, and stupidity. An example is "he was spying on ma daughter". So if you want to take photos of pubescent females the best way to go about it is to use a small camera with a very wide angle lens and then take a picture from 200 feet away? See what I mean about stupidity?

The video states that the mosquito net shock cord has loops in the end. This is not true with any of the 3 of these I have purchased over the years. (I've not had any problems with them or needed to replace them. I am buying more hammocks to take family and friends.) To make those loops, a simple "overhand loop" will do. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VWOuJnRris Mine each came with 2 of the "spring loaded toggles" instead of 1. I don't see a need for 2 and suggest you set one aside in case you damage one or find a different need. It's going to annoy you how easily these spring toggles slide on the shock cord. You're going to think you need a toggle with a stronger spring to stop it from sliding. Truth is the shock cord doesn't need to be any more taut than what that toggle can hold. As long as you tie overhand loop knots in each end, that toggle isn't going to come off. If you make the mistake of using the toggle without a loop (or to try and pinch a loop) it's going to go shooting across the room/yard.

They way he attaches the shock cord to the metal hooks in the video is a little silly. The net has 3 loops on each side with 15 inches between the pairs. If you see any of the stock photos of this hammock on a white background, you will see that this is suppose to create for you a wide flat top. You will also notice that the 4 ends of the shock cord are going off in impossible directions. If you are hanging from trees at least 15 inches in diameter you can get this flat top  by wrapping the shock cord around the trees instead of the metal hooks.

That was the prettiest diamond knot I've seen in any of these videos. Excellent demonstration. I like how you avoided needing to add a small line to pull the shackle open. Good show!

I love watching TYT. We have a lot of differing views, but I always learn from you and never really disagree with you. This is one situation where I strongly disagree. You have only addressed a single corporal punishment scenario here and that scenario is indeed inappropriate. It is inappropriate to respond to a child with violence. That is a very damaging action that teaches them all the wrong things.

The scenario that I think is constructive and necessary is to use corporal punishment as an escalation option. When a child is knowingly choosing to do wrong, you need to have a punishment threshold that the child is not willing to cross. You need to clearly warn them of what punishment will come and explain to them, "now that I have threatened to whip you 1 time with a belt I have to do it or else I am a liar." The child then gets to make a choice. They are then empowered. They are not a victim. This should not be considered violence. If you do have to whip them, you then issue the next warning, "do it again and I will double it." You then repeat this until you reach the threshold the child is not willing to cross. At some point 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 you will reach the threshold where the child is not willing to continue. I will add that if you have a child willing to go to 4, this is a really good time to teach them about the power of exponents! I've only had one event where my child chose to be whipped. They chose to stop at 2 when I explained how quickly it becomes 128 and 1024. (At different ages either 100 or 1000 seems like infinity.)

I would prefer to take something away from my children or leave whatever place we are at when they misbehave. But, there are times when that is not possible. You can't just leave the DMV when that is what they want anyway, or end a trip to Disney World because one of your children choses to enter a power struggle. Sometimes the only logical choice a child can make is to "make it stop." I hate that this is true, but it is true.

Finally I want to close with repeating that it is wrong to react to a child with violence and strike them without warning. Sure, most of our parents did it, but they were wrong and we should learn from it. We didn't deserve it. It is very dangerous to think you did. Because if you deserved violence, you think your parents were right to use violence, and therefore you are also right to use violence. You are not.

If the window is not broken and already "locked into place" (see 10:56) how can I get it unlocked to remove it for tinting?

Now the obvious thing to do is to run a small open conduit straight through one of the buildings on campus and use huge lenses in this configuration to create an "impossible window" through the building and [slightly offcentered] bystanders outside. http://isites.harvard.edu/fs/docs/icb.topic1507065.files/images/cloaking%20rays.jpg

Introduction
Believe it or not, I've never been to jail. Not even for a night. I quit going to bars by the time my fake ID was unnecessary, and I quit hacking into businesses and governments once they started paying me.

Now I just provide for my family and try not to notice politics. I get too angry when I watch how much of my income is taken from me, how it is used, and who is doing it. For the same reason, I can't bear to acknowledge celebrities.

After high school, I went to U of K but the outdated computer engineering curriculum and the seemingly endless amounts of money to be made with my internet specific skills drew me to larger tech markets. I have worked in Silicon Valley, New York City, and have settled in Atlanta.

This place is a dive, but it has a nice small town charm. If you are in from out of town and want to buy liquor that you cannot find in non-liquor stores, you will probably find it here. I was surprised to see they carried my Hendrick's Gin. It's pretty rare.

I love the online banking at this Credit Union. It is the best I've seen. (An Intuit product actually.) I am switching over from Bank of America. I will warn you about this location. It is in a Federal Building. You have to go through scanners to enter. If you have a pocket knife, you will lose it.

20lb Aluminum CO2 tank swap $18. Not a bargain, but they have a good supply so you can get a "pretty" one, which is important to home brewers.

A part of me wants to keep this place a secret, but the business is so great I also want to wish them all the success in the world. The food is absolutely top notch, and the prices are so much lower than even the lowest quality comparables from a grocery store. If you have never been to Patak, you should check their hours first. They are a family business so the hours are "different". Also, don't come if you are in a hurry. I go at the same time on the same day every few weeks. Sometimes I'm in and out in no time. Other times the line looks like communist bread line wrapped around the outside of the building and through the parking lot. But, it sure is worth it!

I don't buy alcohol very often, but when I do, I pass 4 competitors to get here. This place is the best. Great selection of craft beers, which is what I usually buy. Today I bought my first bottle of Patrón and saved $9 on the bottle as compared to 8 other stores in the area.

I was hoping to get my 20lb Aluminum CO2 tank filled close to home. This place swaps them out for $14.50 (Feb 2009). Not too bad a trade for the convenience.
