 Peter Suber, "Six Exploding Knots"
I call these six hitches "exploding" knots because they untie easily and completely with one tug of the ripcord.
Of the exploding knots I've developed, these six fall into a natural family (they are all hitches with various properties), they are the most versatile and easy to tie, and they have undergone the most refinement and testing.
This and the sliding sheet bend (knot #4) are the easiest to tie of the six knots presented here, which makes it the easiest of the non-sliding knots.

 "Six Feet Under" (2001)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The series is hard edged (some of the death scenes of the clients (i.e the guess characters whose funeral takes center stage of each episode) tends to be quite graphic, such as the auto-erotica asphyxiation scenario), the language frequently strong (the c-word has been uttered frequently) and there are many number of sexual scenes.
However, unlike HBO's other golden child, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under may be undeniably adult fare, this is a series with heart and emotional integrity and is frequently very moving, but does so without dipping into the realms of sentimentality.
The Fisher family are at the forefront of the story and each one has their inherent little pet foibles that mark them out as superb to watch.
