My take on that scene is that the parachute lines are elastic. So, there was a force pulling Ryan (Bullock) toward the stations which was inverse to the force repelling Matt (Clooney) away. When Matt unhooks, Ryan is pulled back by the elastic force. Matt judged that the rope wouldn't support his and Ryan's weight, that's why he unhooked.

You are forgetting the solution already running on this TiVo and Youtube era:
Product Placement.
Now, as they know we will skip a Coca-Cola ad, they make Rachel (Jennifer Anniston) drink it on Friends. (Is it obvious I don't see TV series anymore ;)) ??

Submission + - AdSense Disabling Arbitrage Accounts by June 1st

shird writes: "Reports of google trying to clean up its search results by cracking down on dubious Web sites that contain little content but lots of ads, sometimes known as "Made for AdSense" (MFA) sites, have been reaching the media. The Jensense blog reports "Numerous AdSense publishers have been receiving emails from Google the past couple of days stating that their use of their AdSense account is an unsuitable business model and that accounts would be disabled as of June 1st, giving publishers about two weeks notice to prepare for the loss of the AdSense accounts." Google regularly bans and rejects AdSense accounts in violation of the TOS, however this change appears to be affecting a much larger quantity of MFA sites profiting from the imbalance of AdWords costs vs AdSense profits. Currently being discussed over at WebMasterWorld."
