"It's a hard thing. Forcing a man to twist his own hanging rope.

The hangman's noose, also referred to as hanging rope or simply noose, was a well-known knot most often associated with its use in hanging a person. For a hanging, the knot of the rope was typically placed under or just behind the left ear. When the condemned drops to the end of the rope, the force was supposed to break the neck. The knot was non-jamming but tended to resist attempts to loosen it.
