• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

As far as I know there are 3 versions of the slip knot:
The red one and the blue one in this video: noose knot vs slip knot
And also the one in this image
Which one is better?

I was told slipknot for partial. I don't know about full hanging. I was told the hangman knot is only if you drop from a height to break your neck? I am scared to be paralyzed so I tried partial twice to test... But chickened out

That's right, I practiced not putting it on my neck. Just slide and squeeze repeatedly until I got the technique.
So the blue knot? It tightens from the long end

I watched that same video (multiple times, while copying the knots on the rope) to understand the difference between the simple noose knot and the slip knot and my conclusion is that the simple noose knot is the best. I made tests with both. The classic hangman's noose is definitely not good because it's quite rigid and doesn't slide/tighten up easily (I also tested this).

PS: I think I'm from the same country as you. EDIT: Sorry, I was mistaken. Turns out there's various languages that use the word "copia" for "copy".

I used the one in the image while practicing and it didn’t budge at all and I weigh around 117.

Are you still around? I’d like to ask you something about this knot you are talking about

are you referring to the slipknot in the image above that looks like the letter S and wrapped around 2 times ?
Ginnn mentioned a video showing a red and blue one but I see no video just the image

Very frustrating to see yet another thread where not even one source is linked to.

I will try to save the thread with some quotes take from two difference sources I'll link to. Hopefully we can continue a scientific discussion after that.

"Several types of noose are in use worldwide. At its simplest, a noose is just a slip knot fashioned on a length of rope or strong cord. Nazi executioners used this pattern during World War II, typically made from 6-10 mm thick cord."

"The traditional hangman's noose has from 5 to 13 coils which slide down the rope delivering a heavy blow to the side of the neck. This pattern was used in America and countries such as Iran and Iraq."

"The modern American coiled noose is prepared in accordance with a procedure laid down in a U.S. army manual, from 30 feet of 3/4"-1" diameter manila hemp rope, boiled to take out stretch and any tendency to coil. It is formed into six coils and then waxed, soaped or greased to assure that the knot slides easily."

"Brain and most Commonwealth and ex-Commonwealth countries use(d) a simple noose consisting of a loop worked into one end of the rope with the other end passed through it. In the 20th century the eyelet was typically placed below the angle of the jaw, (the submental position). The noose was later improved in the 1870's by William Marwood. He used a brass eyelet inside of the loop to allow the rope to run more freely and to avoid the need for lubrication with soap. The eyelet was initially held in place by a leather washer and later by a rubber one. This type of noose has been shown to cause a quicker death. It is usually made from a 13 foot length of 3/4" diameter hemp rope. Later, the part of the rope that would come into contact with neck was bound with leather.""

"Modern materials such as Nylon have been tried but tended to be too elastic for long drop hangings."

"The rope, which could be 3/4-inch to 1-1/4-inch in diameter, must be boiled and stretched to eliminate spring or coiling. The knot should be lubricated with wax or soap "to ensure a smooth sliding action" according to the 1969 U.S. Army manual."

"the noose is placed around the neck, with the knot behind the left ear."

"Done correctly, the method is designed to have the condemned person's neck be broken after the body has fallen a prescribed distance and is brought up short with a sharp jerk of the rope."
