What I find most surprising about this, was that the rope holders all managed to keep in synch so well. But I guess that amount (weight) of rope, once it was moving ‘as one’ almost kept itself together. I’d have liked to see how easy or hard it was to get that going from a standing start.

Also, did anyone else have any initial confusion in trying to read ‘jumprope’?
I parsed it as jum-prope at first, never having seen this ‘word’ before. It took a me a couple of seconds to realise it was jump-rope.
Maybe this was in part because in the UK we call them skipping ropes, not jump ropes. But the first p really, really wanted to be connected to the r, in my brain, which then asked ‘where’s the rest of this new word - jumproper’?
