Flatulent Technologies
Flatulent Technologies is a company that is committed to "extracting energy from everything that stinks or rots." Sounds like a great idea. The company's NYSE ticker symbol is even better: FART. Too bad a little disclaimer at the bottom of the company's webpage admits it's a parody.

The Indian Rope trick can be done.

The rope is hollow and the basket has a deep hole under it. A man in the hole pushes a steel pole up the rope and a small child climbs the rope.

Many years ago I performed the Irish Rope Trick quite successfully. There may be images in the Fortean Picture Library. Given time, and a large amount of money, I'm fairly sure I could do the Indian version.
