O.K., here's one for everybody here who likes knots. I was like a chicken looking at a card trick, but some people here (TonyE?) may like it.

It took Lisa Piccirillo less than a week to answer a long-standing question about a strange knot discovered over half a century ago by the legendary John Conway.

So, if I tie in with a Conway knot, will it hold a leader fall as well as does a figure eight?
