Another classic was on Palau when teams had to make their treasure chest impenetrable to the other tribe using ropes and sticks. James (not the brightest one) claimed he learned a knot in the Navy that will only get tighter as you try to loosen it. Sounded good, right? Well, once the other tribe learned the trick to loosening the knot, they undid them one right after another. Meanwhile James's tribe had to untie a million conventional granny knots.
