belay loops?

And I think a diet of bananas and dates makes you fart so much that gravity has less effect :-)

I wear a small second harness underneath the main one.

Trent you are a genius! So many people just don't care about their lives enough to bother. If in doubt wear two harnesses, I always say.
So glad I found someone with equal opinions for safety!
All those damn gym climbers thinking they can climb on real rock, without any knowledge of safety.
Sure one harness is enough indoors, but they have no idea that 2 harnesses outdoors is the safest way to climb! I am often scared for their safety.

... depends entirely upon the abseil/belay device.
I know of some that orient correctly without the belay loop.

An interesting fashion started about the time of the Todd Skinner incident. Manufacturers of harnesses started making models with double belay loops!
... I will be curious to see how long that fashion lasts.

I find it easier to fit the second harness around my neck rather than under my first

If you fit the second harness back to front, then you'll be set for coming AND going.

Even more handy for using double ropes or trailing a second rope
