At my recent netmaking demonstration I was showing how to tie the sheet bend.  A young Boy Scout said he knew the knot and how it got the name.  He went on that during a prison escape years ago the convicts tied their bed sheets together using this knot and that gave the knot its name.  He knew because the Scoutmaster said so.  That made my day.
 He also knew how to tie the bowline.  I then told him about the dragon bowline.  Wink Tony
