Smile Paracord?

Wanted to see some pics or hear some ideas about stuff made out of paracord. Not the same stuff like wrist bands, slings, and lanyards. I just started playing with this stuff and I can't put it down. Sure would like some unusual ideas that you don't normally see on youtube. So what have you made or thought about making?

Default "Parahawks"

A chute that opens 100% of the time.

I'm not sure if you ever made it down to Bragg, but there is a story of a guy on a static jump his chute didn't open, and he crashed thru the barracks roof, hit the floor, and limped away with a broken ankle. I guess it happened in the early 60's.

We... as do a lot of folks,... use it to make weights for salmon fishing. We melt one end and then preload certain amounts of weights(split shot). Depending on water speed and all that, you tie on one of the premade weights for the conditions. We use it on a 3 way or 2 way swivel above our fly on a drop line.
