Hey, I'm Charles from Louis Purple, and I'm going to teach you how to tie a bow tie today. So you can wear bow ties with most typically with wing collars. That works well with tuxedos, but we don't see too many people wearing it nowadays. People wear bow ties with small spread collars, and I think that's how they look best. So let's go back to how to tie the bow tie. So the way you want to start is to have the right hand, depending if you're right-handed or left-handed, whichever is more convenient for you. One hand is going to be longer than the other than the other one.
You don't want, depending on the kind of finish you have on your bow tie, you might want to adjust the length so that you have enough width to tie the knot and make it easy for yourself. So this is where you start. The right end should be slightly longer, because I'm right-handed. You go over the shorter end. Pull it out under. That's step one. And you don't worry about the longer side. So once you're in this position, it's pretty much like tying a shoelace. So what you want to do is bring up the shorter side sideways like this. Pull down the longer part over, and it would be the middle of the knot.
And now all you have to do is fold the part in your right hand and slide it inside the loop that you created. And then you just gently tighten the knot, and it's like magic. The knot stops, too. You just pull on different ends, the ones that are opposed to each other. So if you're pulling the back end with your right hand, you want to pull the front end with your left hand. And then you start adjusting the knot and making it however fluffy you like to to be. And that's how you tie a bow tie. Pretty easy, isn't it?
The bow tie was invented in the 17th century in Croatia and its main function was to keep the collar of the shirt closed and keeping the neck upright and in the correct position. This invention was quickly adopted by the upper classes in France, then became the latest fashion and finally established during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. >> http://bit.ly/bow_ties_
Absolutely horrible explanation. Don't become a teacher, dude. "You just pull it through, and it's like magic..." No, man. There are specific things you're doing to make it work, that you failed to explain.
I feel so sorry for right handlers, they struggle with anything involving dexterity, and they don’t have the same ability as left handlers to see when something is wonky, it’s because they can only use one side of the brain.
Gandalf as a Maia (named Olórin) before leaving the Undying Lands.
Originally called Olórin , he was accounted as the wisest of the Maiar (with the possible exception of Melian). He was a Maia of Manwë and Varda. He also served under two other Valar, such as Irmo and Nienna. When the Valar decided to send the order of the Istari (also known as Wizards) to Middle-earth, to counsel and assist all those in Middle-earth who opposed the Dark Lord Sauron, Manwë and Varda decided to include Olórin among the five who were sent.
At first, Olórin was nervous and described himself as too weak and too afraid of Sauron. Manwë understood, and told him that that was one main reason why he should go, to overcome that fear. Thus, he insisted that Olórin should go as the third, but Varda convinced him not to include Olórin as the third, but as the second. Olórin agreed, and prepared for his departure from the Undying Lands with the other four wizards.
Arrival in Middle-earth.
When he arrived to Middle-earth, he received Narya, the ring of fire, from Círdan the Shipwright. Olórin, renamed Gandalf , spent many centuries walking among the elves as a stranger, learning from them and teaching them. He later revealed himself as one of the Istari, and eventually became known as the wisest of and most powerful of that order. He joined the White Council, which was formed to investigate a dark power in Dol Guldur, of which Galadriel wanted him to become the leader, yet Saruman came to lead the Council instead of him. Although Saruman was initially more powerful and more knowledgeable about many matters regarding Sauron and the Rings of Power, and was head of the White Council before the War of the Ring, he later grew jealous and afraid of Gandalf,  which was the reason of his betrayal.
