We now take a break from your normally scheduled make-believe submissions to change gears and bring you make-believe uses and scenerios surrounding real things. Today we are talking about Kevlar thread. Useful for magicians tricks and a staple in bug out bags, these are only the tip of the iceberg for our twisted minds.
If you want to skip the link, the basics are that Kevlar thread is well, the size of thread, albeit flatter. Even as thread, it's crazy strong, having a 200 lb breaking strength. It's also heat resistant on top of it all.
Most of the uses translate well from what gamers would use the mythical "monofiliment" wire with. I saw a video of a guy cutting himself free of professional ziptie style cuffs and paracord bindings, with some sawing, so a garrotte made of Kevlar thread would be rather effective, but a whip would be less so, even with a weighted tip.
One great and simple use that occured to me was a simple trip line, to just trip the target. A quick setup would result in a very hard to spot, high strength trip hazard to give someone the upper hand in an ambush.
If a given person was light enough, this could also be used as a kind of spy ascension gear, being able to conceal meters and meters of the stuff on your person easily, you would just need a delivery system to get the line secured somewhere.
Your turn! Maybe we'll get a new 30 list here...
