You might have guessed that you could make a rope out of human hair. But we bet you didn’t know that the ancient Egyptians used hair-rope to move massive stones and build their incredible monuments. We never would have guessed it, but hair is absurdly powerful for being so wispy and beautiful.
Just imagine making a rope out of human hair. You are probably picturing a haphazard tangled mess, but ropes like these were made with incredible precision and were massive – one rope weighed nearly two tons. According to the source, the hair used in the ropes were donated by female worshipers, because obviously, nobody wants ropes made from some dude’s greasy hair.
So if you are ever in a situation where you are in dire need of a rope, just frantically pull out all your hair, tie it together, and boom, your in rope town. Or something like that.
