comment How do I inspect a climbing rope?
Falling "from above protection" is an everyday occurrence, not at all reason to retire a rope, but maybe you're misusing the terminology: falling from above a multipitch anchor with no other protection involved will generate a fall factor of 2, and if the fall distance is more than a few meters that might be grounds to retire a rope.

comment When do you need compensation training for bouldering?
@Eyal: I wouldn't say so, but it's probably a good idea in any case if it's your only sport

comment Is there any evidence, one way or the other, that “Adopt a Highway” programs reduce littering?
@ab2: I'd say it's part of a general strong preference for neatness and orderliness. And yes, separating trash for recycling is the norm as well.

German here. Simple littering (i.e. throwing away single items that are not dangerous) carries rather low fines (maybe 30 EUR) and is rarely punished. Germans simply don't do it in general because it would be unorderly.

comment Can a human survive in Saltstraumen or other whirlpool?
"not navigable" is a completely different thing than "not survivable for a swimmer". A steady, strong current combined with some shallower spots would be very dangerous for ships but pretty harmless for swimmers.

comment Rational reason to pick a bow over a gun?
It's probably connected to the rational reason for picking hunting over buying your meat it a supermarket.
