My name is Noah Scalin and I made a Skull-A-Day for a year. I started by making an orange paper skull on June 4th, 2007 and posting it online saying, "I'm making a skull a day for a year". I made my 365th skull on June 2nd, 2008 (and even posted a bonus skull the day after since it was a leap year!). June 3rd, 2008 marked the start of year two of the project (called Skull-A-Day 2.0) and featured daily submissions from readers. In October 2008 a book based on the Skull-A-Day, featuring 150 images from the first half of the project, was published by Lark Books. It's called SKULLS and you can buy it from your local independent bookstore or online via Amazon.com or Barnes & Nobel or Powell's Books .

Uses: The Anchor Hitch, or Bend, ( ABOK # 1841, p 309) is also known as the Fisherman's Hitch, or Bend. It is an excellent knot to use for attaching an anchor line to an anchor. Logically, as a knot to attach rope to an object, it should always be called a hitch. However, the name Bend derives from a time when it covered "tied to" and was not restricted to joining two ropes. Comparison: It is very similar to the Round Turn and Two Half Hitches , so similar that it is doubtful if there is much benefit in using one knot over the other.

It looks like something from the movie "Avatar": ocean waters that light up like neon glow sticks when they splash.
