Just HOW do you tie a *censor* tie?
« on: September 17, 2006, 10:52:25 AM »
Okay.

So, the other day, following my girlfriend around town like a zombie while she was shopping for shoes, I got a free tie voucher, and just for fun I went to whatever shop and traded it for a free silk tie.

Today I tried tying the damn thing, just for fun. Oh my what a mistake that was.  :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:. It's been a while since I've been that close to smashing up things. I mean, it seems physically, mathematically and logically IMPOSSIBLE to do.

I've googled around, looked at arcane drawings, and even got a mind-numbing video link from srikat in the donationcoder IRC channel.

About the most sane explanation was one of my friends, who wrote "You take a möbius strip and fold the ends according to Heissenberg's equations, until you have an abstract plane, which you can then put around your neck".

Argh. Good thing I'm not a corporate slave yet.

i admit it takes a while to get it right - once you are happy with the result don't untie it - just loosen it enough to slip over your head, then you won't have to do it every again.

Argh, my girlfriend just managed to tie it with one single attempt, following one of the guides I failed miserably on. HUMILIATION! >_<

According to this image, I use the Manhattan-Knoten method every time I use a tie. Or does that mean Manhattan Knot?

My husband's tried & true method of tying a tie:

Get the store clerk to tie it for you before you purchase it. Then never untie it. If he/she refuses to tie it for you, don't buy it.

In your defense, she had the clear advantage of being able to see not only the guide but the tie directly while you were left looking at it from atop, which is an awkward angle at best.  I'm assuming you were wearing it at the time.  Otherwise, there's no excuse :P
