What is the origin of the expression found himself at the end of his rope?

"Found himself at the end of his rope" meaning a person has come to the end of a struggle or situation of some sort comes from the practice a hanging a condemned man. When the noose is around the man's neck and he drops through the trap door he soon finds himself at the end of his rope when his fall comes to an abrupt end. --I had actually heard that it came from the practice of tethering animals, and is interchangable with the phrase 'end of one's tether'. Much like a dog that tries to run across the yard only to get jerked short when the leash or chain reaches no further, a person at the end of their rope will be out of anywhere to go.

Daisy chaining is when you tie up a rope a certain way for storage so that you will not damage the rope when it is not in use. You can make one by making a loop at one end of a rope, pulling a little bit of rope the the loop to form another loop, pull some rope through that rope to make another loop, and so on until the end when you pull the end of the rope completely through the last loop. If you do it right, you will be able to un-daisy chain the rope in one pull. The whole method is very convenient.

How is jump rope connected to science?

When turning the jump rope, inertia (a.k.a Newton's First Law of Motion) causes the rope to "swing outwards". The center of the rope has the least amount of slack and therefore twirls outward the furthest. Gravity wants to pull the rope downwards towards the ground which explains why it stops after you stop turning it. The jump rope could also be used to model a wave. With one end of the rope securely attached (i.e. a wall) you can move the rope up and down or side to side and view the transfer of energy as the rope moves in "sine wave pattern". The tops of the waves are called "crests" and the bottom are called "troughs".
