I stumbled across this thumbnail of a diagram. The thumbnail looks weirdly disgusting. Can you tell what the diagram is actually showing? HINT: It is trying to show how to perform a specific activity, one which does not involve stretching intestines out into hairy loops.



I blurred out the two pieces of text on the top right because they were still sort of legible.

Any other good thumbnails that, while a legitimate scaled version of the original, are completely unintelligible and/or horrifying looking?

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

My guess- It's two guys torso's with a loop/belt around each of their waist and the rope tied to the center of each belt and brought back out to a single pulley with the extra length of rope dangling in the diagram.

I cheated and used reverse image search, so I won't say what it is, but wow, that was not at all what I was expecting!

Something to do with the inner ear? Or maybe it's group sex between Werther's candies!

My boy scout instincts tell me it's two people and some sort of a rescue line with some specialized knots.

How to properly manage excess rope during a multi-pitch climb (multi-pitch means you have stopping points on the way where the climbers regroup and get ready for the next stage of the climb).

For some reason it's really hard for me to look at the thumbnail and see the two people, it just looks like this gross slimy black thing with the people being just "white space." When I look at the full image, which isn't a whole lot bigger, the people are more visible to me.
