comment Which will keep my food colder longer, draining the melted ice water, or leaving it in the cooler?
Interesting point about the water melting the remaining ice. It might be the case that draining as it melts is better, but once it's all melted I think my post about keeping the water would apply. It would be good if someone would perform a test on this (maybe someone should suggest it to Mythbusters).

comment How do I tie a double fisherman's knot?
@JayBazuzi You can just use a sheet bend, it's essentially the same as a bowline except what would be the loop is separate ends.

To prevent slipping, you can make a couple half-hitches with the tail.
